Mother in law going under the knife.
My mother in law is going under the knife next Thurs. for what has after 2 years finally been diagnosed as lung cancer, she's probally the healthiest woman I know, never smoked, never drank. This comes as a complete shock to all of us.
She has had numerous tests that were all inconclusive, some scans would show a growth, some would not. Finally the Docs have said they are going to go in, this will require a large incision along most of the abdomen and possibly the breaking of the rib cage in order to remove the growth, she is to be in the hospital for 7 - 10 days afterward on epiderals and morphine.
Thankfully she is a RN and knows that the chance of the surgery going bad is slim, the Doc as done approx 500 of these type surgeries.
My wife will be taveling there to help out during the recovery process.
Please remember my mother in law in your prayers,
(on a more humorous note, how many people pray for the WELL BEING of thier in-laws? but what can I say they are the nicest people I've ever met.)

I will add her to my prayer list. Keep us informed of her progress.
I know what you mean about good inlaws. My mother-in-law was one the truly great people I have ever met. Raised 10 children and lived to be 93. My wife is the baby of the family and they tease her about being spoiled. We should all be as spoiled as she is.

Prayers covered for surgery and recovery.
Another set of good in laws here as well!

Oh my John - that really is unwelcome news.
I shall hope that the knife brigade can do some useful pruning for her and that once she gets over the surgery she'll make a good recovery.
She will be added to my CC list of positive thoughts - do pass on to her our best wishes will you.

Your inlaws and family are in my prayers.
How refreshing that you've been blessed with great 'laws!'
Keep us posted and we hope for the best!
