All I can Do is Smile

Update #2

15 Comments

Well, the surgery is complete and Jessica made it through ok.

The doc found that the mass was, in fact cancerous (more specifics from pathology analysis later this week) and a full hysterectomy was performed along with the removal of the gallbladder. Turns out, the cancer had spread to and wrecked the other ovary by reaching behind the uterus. It had also spread to the intestine, but only on the surface. This was scraped away. The gallbladder was also affected and removed. Fortunately, the liver turned out to be clear. I’ll take a gallbladder over liver problems any day of the week.

Chemotherapy will begin after she’s healed up enough from this round of the fight.

Jessica is in the post surgery anesthesia care unit. I’ll be sure to post here when she is up for visitors.
