I'm sitting in the hospital waiting room as I write this. We've been here since 6 a.m. for my mom's surgery to remove her bladder. In late 2012 she was diagnosed with bladder cancer. She went through an aggressive treatment. By spring of 2013, the disease was gone, but doctors told us there was a high chance of it coming back.

Finally, that day has come. The six-hour procedure is over and the doctor just talked with us and said things went well and it doesn't appear that there's any cancer outside the bladder. I'm excited beyond words right now, but she's still not out of the woods. Recovery time in the hospital is at least a week, then she'll have to take it easy and rest for the next six to eight weeks.
