Update After Surgery - My Mom, Joanne Nordeen

Update on my Mom - Joanne Nordeen after surgery on Thursday night July 14, 2011

Mom's surgery was performed by a Neurosurgeon, who is world renowned and has been described to us as the best in the world. She was in great hands. 

Her surgery went well and they removed tumor. Results in about 5 days.

She is in ICU - Neuro Unit of the University Hospital.

Resting a lot, but talking some, remembering a lot of things short term and longer term!

Doc says we still need to get thru the next 24-48 hours, but everything looks good. 

Marty, my brother, is staying the night in the ICU room with our Mom to give me a break. Marty's wife, Ann and I are staying in a motel a half block away, to be close.

Thanks again for all the prayers. We are  blessed to have such wonderful friends and family.

My email is --- I will read messages to Mom. Thanks!

And facebook messages.
