Hello everybody, I thought I would make a quick update on Shanda's progress in the hospital. It has been about five days since her surgery and to be honest, she is having a very hard recovery. I think a lot harder than we all envisioned, yet she is getting stronger each day and slowly progressing. She has finally been able to drink clear liquids, which she was very happy with. As expected, biopsy reports came back with some cancerous lesions present in various parts of her abdomen and liver, very small, but they were there. The important thing is that they have been removed and it confirms even more how vital it was to have this surgery. We don't know when she will come home, hopefully later next week. Per Dr. intructions, visitors are out of the question, plus I just don't think she wants to be be seen in her present condition, maybe early next week. It has also been hard for her to talk on the phone, However, she would LOVE emails and text messages, she has her phone next to her at all times. If you need her phone number or email address, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is the highlight of her day when she hears from someone. She continues to need your prayers and support. Thanks again to all.
