She posted on October 7 that all of the tests had come back clean, though she was still scheduled for surgery to remove the affected areas that were initially discovered.
The surgery took place on Monday, October 10, and Tanya posted afterward:
Well, I’m awake, so Hey, y’all! I’ve received a jillion messages of prayers, love and encouragement. THANK YOU!
I’m so glad to have this behind me and am looking forward to a great recovery. Thank you Jesus, family, friends and prayer warriors!
Prayers are appreciated, as Tanya will have to rest for four to six weeks following the surgery. For those wishing to send cards, here is the address:
