A couple of weeks ago my mother's doctor found a mass on her left lung. Yesterday she had the lower lobe of the left lung removed. Tests indicated that it is/was in fact cancer. Preliminary tests of the lymph nodes and surrounding tissues look good. The doctor recommends a round of chemo just to make sure they got it all. She will have a long recovery, but she is one tough lady. If you smoke, please quit. If you don't smoke, please don't start! All prayers will be greatly appreciated.
