Mom's surgery was slightly delayed starting around 1:30 they finished around 4. All went as planned and we were able to see her around 7. She was awake and seemed to be very clear. A heaviness at the surgery site but all things considered doing well. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes! We will see how she is doing if she can come home tomorrow or the next day.

Chemo is done and finally a 3 1/2 week rest/recovery before the surgery May 6. The staff met her with balloons, lots of goodies and hugs. What a rough time when you are facing chemotherapy but an amazing staff really helps you to face it down. Back at home more flowers to celebrate. Call, email or even better stop by she is always ready for visitors. We'll continue to keep you posted with the progress.

Well on Thursday Jan gets the last in this series of treatments and she is more than ready to be moving on. Numbers have been good so she has stayed on schedule having only delayed treatment once so that is good news. She has tolerated this series pretty well but as she nears the end she is much more tired, the cumulative effect is catching up to her. With the end of these treatments she'll say goodbye to this great staff, it is a tough area to work in but they never show it. Most anywhere but the nursery in a hospital is difficult but oncology is the hardest day in day out, when you see a group in action that works this well you are inspired. They have made a difficult road to travel easier ---A huge Thank You to all of you!
Jan will get about a 4 week rest before having surgery on May 6, then another rest, some radiation and then I'm sure we'll see her back to full speed.
Keep the well wishes headed her way, emails, texts however you communicate.

Always glad to get this text on Thursday it means we are one closer to kicking this!
A few side affects from this treatment but her energy level is good which makes tolerating it easier. She has even worked a few hours lately which we all know how Jan loves to work. Keep her in your thoughts!

After Jan returned from Florida she began her next series of treatments, these are weekly treatments and so far different but more tolerable side effects. Unfortunately she got a sinus infection so battling that with antibiotics dropped her blood work numbers so she did have to skip one week which will add a week to the end. However she is now over the sinus issues and feeling much better, more energy and able to do some of her normal routine. Yes, even working a few hours. We all continue to remind her to stop hugging so much and wash hands more but hugging less is hard to do. Keep her in your thoughts, drop her a line (the post office needs some business), make a call or send an email she'll love hearing from you.
