: Thanks for all the prayers! This morning’s gone really smoothly. I’m surprisingly calm – can only be God’s peace. Mar’s been in a great mood and was making her surgeon laugh for a while before they took her into the OR.
It’s a good day. And she’s gonna finish it two tumors lighter!
Much later update from Martha: I was really nervous about coping with surgery pain while I was already on a pain management plan with a palliative care doctor. I actually woke up from surgery OUT of pain for the first time in a LONG time. Recovery was easy! Getting those tumors out was amazing for my quality of life. Almost NO pain from the time of the surgery! Amazing amazing difference in my quality of life! Yay!
