The lump is out

We just brought Isita back up to the ward from recovery. She is still sleeping but has opened her eyes a few times. No bad things happened during the surgery. She still has both her kidneys and fully functioning bowels. There was minimal bleeding; so no transfusions necessary.

The surgeon took out all of the tumour she could see. The target is to resect at least 95%. In all it is an excellent result, the best we could hope for. Now there is about a week of recovery in hospital before she can go home. So many people have sent prayers and messages of support. Thank you all.
