This entry is coming pretty close to the previous one because so many people expressed concern that I felt it imperative to bring readers up to date.
After a 7-hour surgery at the end of March and a few appointments later, my dear ‘heart-mom’ has been declared cancer free and in no need of either chemotherapy or radiation at this time. She does, however, need to be followed on a regular basis, and I hope that she will heed that directive. To say she is lucky is an understatement of massive proportion.
I am filled with joy and relief.
