Talking Good News!

My sister had a broncoscopy (sp) this morning and it shows no new cancer growth or tumors in the lungs or throat! Her surgey on her right lung is healing well. The apirating was do to the radiation therapy she had about 6 years ago for throat cancer. Her tounge and throat muscles were weakend do to the radiation. She will go to physical therapy to get the stregnth back up. She will be on a feeding tube until she can swallow again. They believe her cancer is only at a stage 1 or 2. I think if she can keep strong she will be ok!!! She is going to special care for a week and then she will be home. They beleive she can start chemo again in about a month.

Babbles! That is realy great news! Congratulate your sister, and tell her not to push it to hard, otherwise her white cells will not rebound as well as they should.
