I am also in a blissful state induced by narcotics and pain medications in an attempt to decrease the impressive discomfort caused from the tissue expanders, but the most important result is that none of the sentinel nodes removed showed any evidence of cancer! Final pathology report is pending, but here’s hoping it will show that the cancer was confined to the ducts.
Thank you all for your prayers, positive energy, and helpful suggestions. I treasure each of the comments and personal e-mails.
Finally because I have no shame after having my chest drawn on by the plastic surgeon and being naked during much of the hospital stay, here are 2 of the least embarrassing pics taken by my sis and sweetie. The first is me getting ready to leave the hospital, which was a wonderful place. Notice the goofy grin and completely flat hair – I look like Moe of the three stooges.
This one is at home, me sleeping with a coffee cup in hand and flowers from family.
