Will we know all the answers right after surgery?

No, we won't know all the answers right after surgery. To find out what "stage" of cancer Connie has we will have to wait 2-4 days for pathology reports to come back from the lab. They will go over the tumor, calcifications and the nodes with a fine-toothed comb to determine how bad she has it, and it will also hopefully tell us if they were able to get it all out on the first try.

Here on the home front today, life is pretty normal. Gifts and notes of cheer have been coming in already as we prepare for our Tuesday hospital visit. Many have stopped both of us to let us know that we are in their thoughts and prayers, too. We thank all of you! We believe the surgery will be about 6 hrs long, and we still don't know what time we will need to show up at the hospital...should find out tomorrow.
