so far, so good....

greetings, friends-I had hoped to do one update to provide information about surgery and pathology, but as the pathology results aren't in yet, will just let you know that my surgery on January 11 went very well.  I was in the hospital overnight, but have been home and quite comfortable since, having no pain to speak of.  My daughter Erin was here for the surgery and afterwards and Bob's daughter Sharon has been here and is still here, so I have plenty of help doing everything needed.  Plus some wonderful meals!   My post-op visit this afternoon went well also, and I don't have to return for a month.  I will be on one chemo drug for a year (Herceptin), another drug for 10 years and the pathology will determine what/if any other treatment is needed.  I will do another update when those pathology reports are in, which should be within the next day or 2.  til then, Sue

    Sounds great, Sue, post-op at the hospital and even better at home with family and tasty cuisine. May every day now bring you joy and wonder and a welcome sense of relief. Michael
