She did fantastic! The surgery lasted only 3 hours instead of the expected 4 which is always a good thing. They were able to completely remove the tumor & based on the frozen pathology report, it is said to be benign. Can I get an AMEN?!? Of course, it isn't w/ 100% certainty but this has put everyone at ease for the moment. My mom didn't seem to have any problems recovering & honestly, the swelling is minimal. She also has complete movement in her face which means there was NO NERVE DAMAGE! The drs were amazing & we thank them very, very much.
Our family appreciates all the prayers. A very special thank you to my inlaws, Bill & Donna, for cooking an amazing meal for my father & 2 grandmothers. YAY!
