|The three of us at the TAP-stravaganza!|
First of all - THANK YOU. Thank you for your prayers and support and love and best wishes. I felt them and I know her family did too.
I thought you might want to know how she's doing. She came through surgery really well. Here's some more good news - her lymph nodes are clear - no cancer. For those of you who've been through this, you know what good news that is. Kate actually cried with relief when she found. CRIED. That should tell you how much we love her because, come on - Kate doesn't cry.
One of the comments on the letter to Ellen was from Von, who knew exactly who Ellen was from all the posts here on Mommyland where she has been the star. I thought I'd try to put them all in one place so you could read about her greatness. I've probably forgotten a few, so please just remind if you remember one that I didn't include.
And of course, if you want to keep tabs on her directly, here's the link to her blog.
