Wish her well.

Poor woman - ain't it the way - you wait ages till you can retire, and then your body starts playing silly buggers.

I wish her a smooth rehabilitation and recovery.

Funny how the body craves repetition. Likely stage 0 or 1 so no chemo but radiation and of course surgery. Best news, if it is 0 or 1, she will definitely be ok.

I understand your sentiment but considering her age, it’s no surprise that she has some physical/health problems. Some, such as her cataracts, were known before but she put off treatment till recently. And she’s had several other health problems including surgery throughout the years. In any case she’s got the live and support of a good husband and the cancer is early stage, so I think she’ll do well.

Hope it goes well and the cancer is totally removed through the surgery. There are no real positives when it comes to cancer but a removal without the need for chemical or radiation treatments is probably the best outcome for a bad situation.
