Tomorrow (8/17/16) my mom will have a left breast mastectomy with sentinel node biopsy which will be performed by Dr. Peter Blumencranz at Morton Plant Hospital. As to be expected, everyone is anxious, still reeling in disbelief, and trying to harness profound optimism. Fortunately, we have an ENORMOUS network of family, friends, coworkers, and community, that we are surrounded by who exude positivity! My mom was in good spirits when I left her this evening around 9:30pm, she was packing for the hospital and preparing for the big day tomorrow. I will post updates as they are received. We are going to arrive to the hospital around 6:30am and surgery will occur 2-3 hours after that. We love you all!!
