Update on my mother...

It's been two and a half month's since I last commented here on my mother's health. The current status: She has completed the BCG treatment for the bladder cancer. The docs then spent a couple of week's trying to adjust her blood pressure meds to get that back under control. (Frankly, I suspect that the medication changes they made back in July caused more trouble than they solved.)

Now that those issues are out of the way, they've scheduled the surgery to remove the section of her colon that contains the growth. She checks in next Tuesday for prep, they'll run another colonoscopy on her Wednesday, and Thursday they'll do the cutting. She should be in the hospital 3-5 days after that if they do the surgery by 'scope, or 5-7 days if they have to make a regular incision. Wish us luck....
