Hi everyone

I came home for a couple of hours to get some things done while my older daughter is with Melinda. Here's the latest:

The surgery took 3 hours, but the Dr. said according to the preliminary frozen section taken, the mass was BENIGN!!

He did say there was still a few days until the final pathology report comes in, but he's pretty confident all is well. This thing was huge...they took pictures of it...and she lost her right ovary and tube, but everything else looks good and she should still be able to conceive in the future. I had both my children with one ovary, so we're not too worried there.

She IS in a lot of pain, of course. She's been on a morphine drip which helps, but unfortunately is very nauseous from it, and very drowsy. This morning the Dr. told us they must reduce the morphine and begin oral medication in order for her to get up and begin moving around; then her nausea should subside and she hopefully will be able to eat something.

I'm not sure now whether she'll be released by Wednesday; it will depend on how she does today.

So...the worst is over and Melinda will begin to heal...the only variable will be the time it takes her to get well enough to come home. I may stay over again tonight, but I'll return and post once she's back here and settled.

THANK YOU everyone, for all you prayers, good thoughts and well wishes. I KNOW it's made the difference. Bless you!!

I'll be in touch soon.

Hi all

Just thought I'd let you know that Melinda came home Wednesday evening and is doing well. Once the morphine was removed, she "woke up", got her appetite back, and is now walking more easily. I just know that being home will be more conducive to her recovery.

Thanks again for your kind replies. I you guys!
