My information, in a short phone call I made from Sweden, is that she
had the operation for her lung cancer on Tuesday, and had the growth
itself and one lobe of her left lung removed; this was followed by
internal bleeding that was discovered while she was in the recovery room
and required another immediate operation late in the evening to correct
it followed by intensive care overnight, but by one in the afternoon on
Wednesday she was back in an ordinary ward and being bullied by a physio
about coughing enough. Her husband said that she was better than he had
expected after two invasive operations in so short a time, and another
report via phone yesterday indicates that she is said to be recovering
faster than had been expected.
They haven't yet done the biopsy and so we can't know how malignant it
all might be, but so far the crossed fingers all over the world seem to
be doing the job, so it would be good if everyone kept them that way
until she is definitely known to be out of the wood.
