Surgery Update

The past two weeks in the Oliver life has been crazy!! But we are so blessed with many friends and family members that have been praying us through this difficult time and we are so thankful for a God who is faithful! We have felt his presence more than ever before! Surgery was on Friday and it was a LONG day! Surgery was scheduled for 10 but they ended up not taking her back til closer to 11:45 which made for a lot of waiting but the surgery went well. By about 1 the surgeon had come up to talk to us....what a sureal feeling - totally felt like I was Grey's anatomy or something! Anyways the surgeon had great news! They think they were able to get the whole tumor and the lumphnodes to her looked negative for cancer. We will find out for sure on Tuesday but praise the Lord for pre-lim good news! Mom took a while in recovery but once she woke up she did really well! She has done pretty good these past 2 days at home and we are so thankful. She hasn't slept well but she hasn't been in too much pain so its a blessing. She's been able to get up and move around and actually was able to take a bath today - sounds crazy to be so grateful for that but we are!! So far she is doing good - as I type she's sleeping in a 82 degree room cause the air just went out in our house - really?!! Thankfully we have another unit for the front of the house! Thank ya Jesus!
We're hoping for great results on Tuesday as we get the final word and finalize a treatment plan! We know our God, the healer, is with us and will never leave us!!!!
