This is Nathan handling the typing today.

Emily wants to say that the surgery lasted longer than expected, and they were not able to do it laparoscopically. But, as promised in the blessings, they were able to gather what they took out, so the incisions were not as bad as they has feared. However, after surgery the doctor had to leave and everything was sent to pathology, so we don’t have answers yet, and hopefully we will learn more tomorrow.

Many thanks to the people feeding my husband and children. (I second that, says Nathan.) I am still on liquids, but hopefully tomorrow I will be able to sit in a chair.

Even though I am still sore, and obviously the incision hurts, but I already feel better having those tumors out. Also, as you can see, we are still adorable. (She made me write that.)

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
