Update on Aunt Teresa

Teresa had a double mastectomy on Friday. Everything went very well. There is no cancer in the lymph nodes and she came through the surgery so well. She spent the night at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital and is now here at my house.

You would never know that she is 87 years young!! She looks great, is eating well, and smiling all of the time. Thank you to our wonderful cousins who were all at the hospital on Friday. Teresa's wonderful nieces, Jean and Marion, came all the way from California. Another niece, Jan, comes on Tuesday. Her niece, Lena, and great niece, Sam, were here before the surgery. And all of the nieces were at the hospital with us.

She spent a lot of time today calling family and friends to let them know how she is doing. We did a video that is on facebook thanking everyone.

We are truly blessed to have this incredible lady in our lives. Thank you for all of your warm wishes and thoughts and prayers!! Here is a little thank you from Teresa to everyone. You can turn off the music at the top of the playlist where the two vertical lines are.

Oh, Sheila! I am so pleased and happy that everything went so smoothly for Aunt Teresa! I know it must have meant so much to her to have all of her family surrounding her. She looks and sounds wonderful. Please tell her that her positive attitude and strength are giving me strength and courage. She has reminded me of how important it is to have a positive outlook and faith that things will work out the way they are meant to.
Lots of love,
Martha
