Prayer request: aunt's cancer surgery
6
Tue, 03-16-2010 - 12:05pm

My mum's older sister is having surgery today to remove intestine and a kidney because of stomach cancer. (Their dad had the same cancer and he died two years ago tomorrow, so I'm sure many of us in the family are going to be plagued by sad thoughts this week.)

Hoping all goes well and they get it all!

Haven't heard much yet except that she was out of surgery this evening. Hoping there's more news in the morning!

Nothing new posted yet today, but there were details in the daughter's Facebook status last night. Guess the surgery went long - which might mean there was more damage than expected, but hopefully they got everything cancerous. She needed blood transfusions as well but she was alert and talking in recovery, so that's good.

On Monday, my aunt told my mum that since it's a hereditary cancer, we all need to be checked by age 40. I assume my mum will be hounded by that sister to get her appt as soon as possible, and then Mum will badger the rest of us. That's a good kind of pestering, though...

I'll have to send my mum an email asking for any more details. My guess is the challenge now moves to recovery - my dad recently had difficulty with the aftermath of abdominal surgery, so my aunt might have similar issues.
