#MonicaRocks wanted to take a few moments to express her appreciation for all of your support.

CLEVELAND — We have an update to pass along to you from our resident rock star, 3News' senior health correspondent Monica Robins.

Recently, she went through more than nine hours of surgery to remove a brain tumor. The surgery is being considered a success, even though doctors weren't able to remove every bit of what they believe is a benign brain tumor.

On Thursday, Betsy Kling spoke by phone with Monica to get an update on her recovery. You can hear their entire conversation in the player below:

Monica wanted to especially send out her thanks to all of you for your overwhelming support since she first broke the news about her condition.

"I'm doing everything I can not to cry. I'm so blown away," Monica told Betsy. "I knew I lived in an incredible community. I've been in Northeast Ohio for 22 years and I know how amazing it is, but I've never been hit with it directly."

"As soon as I get my eyes and fingers working, I have every intention of responding as much as I possibly can," Monica said.
