Oh what a pleasure to hear that Beth called her sister Rae this morning. She did! Called her on her own steam. She didn't sound quite the same. Well, she didn't sound at all like her usual voice Rae said but she did quite well. Just low pitched really. This was a joy to hear! She made the call her own self!
Beth was able to eat this morning which was another extremely happy moment for me when I learned she had! YES! They will be moving her to another part of the hospital some time today, so she'll be off the surgical floor I am assuming. Another wonderful thing to know.
The pins are now in place which is what the surgery was about yesterday...so that the radiation can be delivered exactly where it is supposed to be. Some lymph nodes were removed as per usual when it is surgery for cancer...adjacent lymph nodes are removed and examined.
She will have three days of radiation starting very soon and Beth will be told when or if there is any more to come when they make their determinations.
It's been wonderful meeting other friends of Beth. Thank you for coming over to my blog house and of course I will let you know whatever I hear as soon as I hear it.
Beth's sister just emailed me that Beth herself called again and said that the doctor had just been to see her and that she would receive a CAT scan and one radiation treatment today and that she is likely to go home Saturday! Hallelujah!
