Mom's surgery is in just a few hours. Her nervousness over it is starting to get to me. Mom has always been a very intuitive person, so I'm worried she is right once again. I am trying to remain positive about it, but removing half a lung is a big deal... especially when there's a tumor caught up in it and that tumor may be attached to a main blood supply. I will have my laptop with me today to help with the boredom of a four-plus hour surgery, so I will try to post updates as we get updated by the doctors.
