    Since I started this, I'll keep it updated.

    She's going to IU hospital down in Indy to have a good hunk of her liver removed on Wednesday because even with three major hospitals around here, there are no surgeons up here that do that sort of thing.

    It's around 200 miles south of here and her sister is going to take her since I've never driven down there and I don't want to screw up and get lost since I'm awful with directions.

    The good news is, it's operable and livers will regenerate on their own. It's supposed to be outpatient surgery but I'm skeptical.

    Well I am hopeful for the very reasons you have stated. I am skeptical that it will be day surgery. That is a serious operation and I would think requires at a minimum a time of observation to be sure that Vicky dealt with the body trauma from this procedure. I am hopeful the malignancy is contained to the area of the surgery. Keep the faith and think positive. The vigil continues.

    I will continue to respond on the forum as long as you are posting there. If you prefer to go to the message system just let me know.

    Thank you guys.

    Yeah, I doubt it will be outpatient surgery. She's already weak, the surgery will leave her sedated and hard to transport, plus it's a long haul down there both ways, at least four-five hours each way.

    Well, she passed away at around 5:30 PM eastern time today. I did visit with her an hour before but she was already fading and her sister called me with the news... Fucking surreal, it happened so fast and was completely out of left field.
