Hi friends of Pateeta, it's Melissa, her daughter. My Mom is sitting next to me so I will type her words.
She had surgery on the right lung to drain fluid. It was the same that was performed on the left, the Talc pleurodesis. While the doc was in there, he did remove a tumor that had metastasized from the diaphragm. So, there WAS metastases to the lung.
She's in a lot of pain, and is having trouble breathing on the right side. She is hitting her pain button a lot, and is all tangled up in tubes and pissed off about it. She just wanted to update. She says if she gets out of here, the party is this weekend. She (and me too!) Says thank you all for your love and support.
I will update as I am asked to. Ginny, if you want to come she is on the ICU at Good Sam.
Love to all,
