Country sensation Garth Brooks' mother Coleen is doing extremely well after having surgery recently in Los Angeles. Mrs. Brooks, who had cancer removal surgery on her throat last year, was having her regular monthly check-up recently when a small spot of cancer was found. Brooks will return to spring training with the San Diego Padres in Peoria, Arizona, on March 11th. "Mom is in terrific shape," says Brooks. "Our family wants to be sure to thank everyone for their prayers and support. Nothing has meant more to us than the love and concern Mom has received from people all over the world."
