I spend most of the day with Mum yesterday, looking after Thea, and later talking and makings lists with people to contact and things to do.
Mum was so afraid that the scan showed that the tumour had grown through her colon, and that the doctors were unable to operate, because that would be the end.

We went to the hospital today and met up with my Bro.
Mum called him yesterday and asked if he wanted to come too. As soon Mum uttered the word cancer, there was a big gasp at the other end of the phone, and he agreed to come with us.

When it was Mums turn, we were met by a really sweet nurse, a doctor and a medical student.
The doctor went straight to the point. There were no metastases to lungs or liver or anywhere and Mum would get an operation to remove the tumour and some of the colon…..That was such a relief to hear that.
The doctor went over different scenarios that could happen, but said that they assumed everything would go well.

Monday we will go to the hospital and talk to a nurse about what will happen when Mum get hospitalized. Then an anaesthetist and they will run some tests.
Thursday Mum will get hospitalized and have the operation Friday. If everything goes well, she will get home the following Monday.

So we are relieved and much calmer right now♥


Thank you all for being here for us, you are more loved and appreciated than you will ever understand♥

The doctor was really optimistic, even if he had to pin out the "might be" scenario.
Thank you so much for your kind words.

Hej søde
Jeg er ked af at jeg ikke har svaret dig.
Tusind tak for din omsorg og bekymring for mor og mig.
Hun kom hjem fra hospitalet igår, skal hvile og slappe af, men har det ellers så godt man kan forvente..
Jeg gør mit bedste for at hjælpe hende, vi tager en ting af gangen..
♥stor stor klemmer♥
