Momlock went in for surgery yesterday. This was a very major procedure to remove the tumor from her pancreas. We were warned it could have taken up to nine hours. When I talked to my father afterwards I could hear him crying tears of joy, because, to quote the surgeon, her procedure was a complete success!

She will be in the hospital for another 10 days. Dadlock didn't allow himself to even dream of this outcome. She still has two courses of chemo to make sure the cancer is gone, but the doctors are very happy with how yesterday turned out.
