I came through surgery with no complications. I look pretty awful, SERIOUSLY bad hair day, but am in manageable pain. Have a pain button, which is great. Need it big time when I stand.
So far, lymph nodes looked clear! Won’t get pathology on breast tissue or confirmation on nodes until next week. Can’t wait to hopefully breathe that HUGE sigh of relief, confirming that this was indeed prophylactic.
So far, on a scale of 1-10, my experience at Sibley has been a 10 (which isn’t to say I recommend it as your anniversary B&B). Incredibly kind people, meditation music and beautiful nature scenes on the screen as I was in pre-op, now huge, private room with big flat screen today. Geoff is happily watching his beloved Nats.
Really, all the love and support helped. I know there’s a challenging road to walk over the next weeks (and walking HURTS) but I’ll do it, get on with my life, and be the better (and healthier) for it.
I’ve received endless encouragement on this site. Received flowers from Linda and Klyde, an Amazon card from my awesome Learning Support team, and an offer to bring dinner this weekend. I take none of it for granted and am so grateful!
