Surgery went great

Surgery went great.....Doctor Rozeboom saw no cancer on the outside as a matter of fact he said it was so clean and he was pleased with that.

All glory to God!!!!

Dr. Rozeboom was running way ahead so they called me to see if I could come in and my surgery started at 1:30 instead of 3:00. From the time I got there on Monday to when I left on Tuesday at 10:30am I was only in the hospital for 21 hours. Dr. Rozeboom also said I lost very little blood, less than 2 tablespoons. That DaVinci Robotic Surgery is amazing. But of course I had the best doctor and the best anesthesiologist Dr. Christopher Walsh. He is the best in his field and so compassionate. You can request him too!!! That made me so happy!!!! So, everything has been sent to pathology and I will know on Monday what they find. Sleeping all the time and thank goodness for pain pills. Thank you everyone for the well wishes, the prayers and the emails!!!! I'm on the mend and praying for good news on Monday. Love ya.....Amy

~My Surgery Tomorrow~

The above link will take you to the page of the Da Vinci Robotic Surgery that I am having on Monday.
Scroll down to the part where there is a guy sitting on a chair looking around.
That is my Doctor, Dr. on him and he will give you a little spiel about the surgery.
Then right above him is a link (see below) and click on the first one that says prerecorded hysterectomy webcast.
MAKE SURE YOUR POP UP BLOCKER IS OFF otherwise you can't watch it. Resources
    You can speed it up to about the 32 minute part and that is where the surgery starts. PRETTY COOL, VERY INTERESTING (gross at some parts) but I have watched it 2 times and will watch it again Monday before I go in, you know me, I have to know what's going on.....
    Let me know if you get to watch it.....but don't watch it if things like surgery gross you out. Oh and there's hardly any blood so it's not so bad
    My surgery is scheduled to start at 3pm but I have to be there at 1pm to start the IV's and stuff. They said Dr. Rozeboom is always running ahead so I will probably go in before 3. Also, my surgery is scheduled for 2 hours but if he sees cancer on the ovaries (yes, he will be able to tell right away) my surgery will then be a 3 1/2 to 4 hour surgery to allow him to call in another kind of surgeon and pathologist so they can make sure to get all cancerous tissues removed.
    I'm in great hands...I have the BEST SURGEON in THE COUNTRY!!!!
    Love ya!!!! and talk with you soon......Amy
