The Biopsy

Hi Everyone,

Tuesday, November 9th:  After waking up bright and early; Tom, Margaret, Mom and myself arrived at the Queen at 6:00 am. Check-in went very smoothly.

Administering IV’s to Mom’s tender veins can be quite challenging, but the nurses in the surgery center were wonderful and had no problems at all! 

7:30am:  The biopsy was done and Mom came through it fantastically. It went very quickly and smoothly for her.  Dr. Colton came out and gave us all the report on how Mom did. She was very patient with us as she explained how the procedure went and all of the findings.

Following the biopsy, Mom was kept in the surgery center in order to bring her vitals back into normal ranges.

I'm here with Mom now.  We're communicating via pen and paper!  Limited talking for ONE WEEK, per doctor's orders.  This should be interesting.   :)

The doctor should be calling soon and I'll update again with the information.
