The Surgery update

Mom (Pat) had her surgery on Wednesday in order to fix her arm. The surgery went well. Her arm was pretty bad so they decided to replace the shoulder and the upper arm bones. She now has a metal arm and shoulder. There was a large tumor on the arm bone and it had gone into the muscle/tissue. So we are waiting to find out the results of the biopsy which will tell us whether or not it is active cancer. Either way her cancer needs to be put back into remission again. She will need lots of recovery time at least 6 weeks before she can move the arm. That is all for now. I'll do my best to keep everyone up to date.
