Julie had surgery today to remove her left lung, a treatment for asbestos-caused lung cancer. But tonight her daughter posted:
Mom is doing really well tonight, alert and only in a little pain. Miraculously, she still has BOTH lungs! When the doctor got in there, he says it appears that she has had a 100% response to the chemotherapy, so there was no reason to remove the lung. In his career, mom is only the 3rd patient he has seen results like this from. We are very excited.
Gratitude. Can't say much else.
