Good morning! I'm now 2 days post-op and doing well. I'm still in pain but nothing that a little Percocet can't fix! I can't move my arms very much so I'm moving a little slow. I feel good so I'm having to force myself to rest and let others help me. Heather (Joel's sister) and Isabel (our niece) arrived yesterday. Ella is so excited to see someone her size.
We are rejoicing in the good report that my lymph nodes are cancer-free!! I have an appointment with Dr. Haines (plastic surgeon) Monday to hopefully remove the drains and begin the tissue expanding. We will find out Friday the final report about the tumor. They will stage my cancer and the results will determine the type and length of chemo I will receive. Again, thank you all for your prayers! By the way, in case you're wondering, I did chop off my hair. I knew I wouldn't be able to lift my arms to fix it and I love this new style. We will be posting more pictures over the next few days of the "Cousins," so make sure to check back. God bless!
