MIL went into hospital last night and had needle biopsy and bone scan done. today they told her that the tumor is malignant and bone scan was clear. she has a 6 cm tumor on left upper lobe........she goes to surgeon tuesday to find out what he'll do. she is 78 and 100 pounds. she is very worried....just quit smoking 2 weeks ago.......I know surgery is going to be hard for her. More so when coming home to recoup......we are all ready for the process and are going to keep an open mind and keep her spirits up....I know she will be fine..........any comments or suggestions??
