Mom wanted me to give you an update on Auntie Penny, she is in a rehabilitation hospital right now! That is good news because she is getting closer to coming home.
My Auntie Penny needs to learn how to talk and swallow again.
Mom told us that she is talking well with the tracheotomy closed off. Even though her voice
is very soft, my Mom told us that the whole family cried when she spoke again.
You see, Auntie Penny has squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue and tonsil. The operation was to remove the cancerous tumor that had grown back. This is her second round with this horrible cancer. We are waiting for the pathology reports to come back next in anticipation that all the cancer is gone.
For all my furry friends out there, please give your parents an extra hug today!
