Sharin' About Sharon: Vol. II
Sharon called ME this morning. She was up and around at 8:15! She's not requiring that much morphine to manage the pain, and is happily beginning the day as all people should--with a Van Morrison album.
They still aren't sure whether or not the growths were cancerous, but the doctor doesn't think so. We'll know for sure in a week.
One concern that you can all keep in your prayers is that she is having trouble breathing...the doctors will be inserting a breathing tube later this morning. Breathing difficulties are a not-uncommon side effect to both opiate pain management and abdominal surgery. Given the way she's mastered everything else, I imagine this will go well, too. She is a trooper.
I misunderderstood her earlier message. She is not having a breathing tube inserted. She's receiving breathing treatments.
