We are home from the hospital.
Surgery (and emergency surgery the next day) went well. 7 nights in the ICU were hard; getting onto a regular floor made things a bit easier on me.
They got clean margins , though my partner's cancer had spread to lymph nodes.

I did my best to take care of myself while spending most of my time in the hospital.

We are now home and I am rushing around like a mad woman to get caught up on neglected chores, get the laundry done, and starting to prepare the property for winter. I hope to have all of this done before we have to face radiation treatment 5 days a week for 6 to 8 weeks.

Thank you everyone for your support in this difficult time!

    Hey Jen, good to see an update again, thanks for continuing to find a moment to keep us informed. All your friends are praying for you both. I couldn't agree more with what USMAWIFE has said, you don't need to do it all !!! People who have been in your situation WANT to help out so don't hesitate to reach out. Wish I lived closer I'd be there in a heartbeat !!!

    Will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong in your faith and don't beat yourself up, just the opposite pat yourself on the back !!!

    HUGS !!!

    emoticon glad all went well even though there was a set back ...

    Just remember you do not have to do it all... just do what you can.. Ask for help. Lots of folks with the cancer societies will help you with some of the tasks, especially the winterizing the property ..
