Update on Maura:
She had her operation last Monday. They could hold the knee for now, the cancer hadn't reached it yet. I don't know exactly what they did, but in any case she has a pin and a plate in her leg. It was an 8 hour operation. Later on they discovered on the scan that one of the screws was screwed up (sticking out a bit) and that would be bothering her later, so she has to go under again next Monday to fix that.
She lost her hair, but got a beautiful wig. She's doing great, considering all she's been going through. Now she's not allowed to walk and has to sit in a wheelchair for one whole year, hoping there will be no inflammation, because when that happens, her leg has to go.
Let's hope it will all work out for the best.
