Another surgery update...it would be nice if I could stop having to post these

I've been up since 5am. I'm so very tired right now, but I figured I'd post a quick update on my grandmother's surgery. She had to go in twice, but the surgeon said he got all the cancer out. He also said that she didn't have the bad type of melanoma. I can't remember the names of the different types, but there's one that doesn't take root and won't spread internally, and then there's the type that does. My grandmother had the first...meaning that provided they cut it all out she should have no further issues. Which is a huge relief, to say the least.

So they cut it out, and ran a bunch of tests to make sure they got it all, and they did a quick check for any other spots but didn't find anything. She has a follow up appointment next Tuesday (here thankfully, no going into the city again) to get her stitches out and have a more thorough exam for any other cancer. I have to see if I can take a half a day off or something on Tuesday to get her to the doctor.
Hopefully that will be the end of it.

Thank you so much to those of you who have been there for me through all of this. You have no idea how much I appreciated it and how much it helped. Then there were the people who flat out ignored me when I told them (some of them really surprised me...), but I guess it's better that I found out what types of people they really were. I seem to have a problem with picking some of the worst people as my friends...but then again I've picked some of the best as well so I guess it all works out in the end.

I think I should stop writing as I'm exhausted and delirious, and I'm pretty sure I stopped making sense a couple paragraphs ago. I'm off work tomorrow to make sure my gran is okay (and make sure she doesn't ignore all the doctor's orders as usual lol). I'll probably post again then. But for now, goodnight!

Glad the surgery went well :D Your gran hasn't gone out for any random walks yet, has she?


It all made sense, so don't fret about you sounding delirious ^_^

She has not walked anywhere yet, it rained all day! But she's not supposed to bend over at all and I've caught her at it at least 6 times today. She's always like, "Oh yeah I didn't realize I was doing it" XD

I'm really glad to hear your Gram is ok, and I will do my best to not make the insensitive comments anymore... Let me know if you need any help or anything, you know I'm around. ^_^

Glad to hear she made it out ok and everything. Though she doesn't seem to listen to doctors very well does she? >,>
