This is Lynn's friend Ellen, and I hope I'm doing this right. My dauther tried to show me how to post on here.

Lynn wanted me to update you on her surgery. It went well and took about 4 hours. She was in recovery for a very long time as her blood pressure dropped extremely low -- but it always does when she has anethesia. They were able to remove both of the small tumors and the very tiny remains of the one that she had already been treated for. She's in ICU now and will probably sleep for a long time. I will be back at the hospital tomorrow to see her. I know they hope that they can move her in the morning and that they want her up and walking tomorrow.

There were a couple of things that Lynn asked me to find out but I'm not sure how to look for the info, so if someone could just write it here, I'll tell her about it tomorrow.

She wants to know how Lucy is doing; how Zoe is doing; and if Terra has had puppies yet.

We're still hoping that she will be able to come home on Thursday, and if not, I will try to write again and let you know. Lynn has said that she really loves this group and that you've helped her in many ways. Thank you for being there for my friend.

Oh, Ellen, thank you for the update. It sounds good so far and I hope things continue in that direction.

Lynn is so lucky to have such a loyal and devoted friend as you.

Here are the threads she was interested in. Lucy and Zoe are on the road to recovery. I'm not keeping up with the puppy thread.

Ellen - I'm so glad you posted.:ThankYou: I think you're a pro:aktion033:. Did it all right. Am so relieved that Lynn is out of surgery and they got the tumors. I was alarmed about the blood pressure but I'm sure it's better low than high and if it's happened before then it wasn't unexpected. You are such a wonderful friend but all of us here know why....Lynn is simply the best.:wub: We're all praying for her and hoping that she's kicked cancer's butt. Thanks again. As far as the pups go -- don't think they're born yet. It seemed imminent early today, but we've been posting looking for news on it but no word yet.

Ellen you did a GREAT job for your first post!!! Hunter and I are so glad that Lynn did well and is on her way to recovery.

Lucy is out of surgery and her doctors think she will be able to return to her home and her Mom Allie on Thursday. Crystal said that Zoe is feeling better today and that she wanted to cuddle with Crystal which is always a good sign. The pups are not born as of yet as far as we know. It seemed like they would be born earlier today but nothing so far.

Thank you so very much for keeping us posted on how Lynn is doing - please tell her that both Hunter and Erin are wishing her nothing but the best! :heart:

Ellen,

Please give Lynn hugs and best wishes from us - I am so happy to hear that she may be home on Thursday.

Is there any way that we could send her something through the postal office?

Thank you so much,

Allie
