An Update From The Missus, the Day After...

The Missus is a Doctor Who fan from way, way back...

Here's the latest from The Missus:

Hi all!

We are home and after a nap (I had to get up at 3 a.m. because we needed to check in at 5:30 a.m.) I am feeling okay, other than a little headache.

The procedure went fine, and now I have to wait for the pathology
results, which should be back early next week.

According to the surgeon, I should not have any problems with edema because they only removed one node (in the past they would remove all of the lymph nodes under the arm, which meant that lymph couldn't drain

I follow up with the surgeon in 2 weeks, then meet with an oncologist to discuss hormone therapy then I'll need to set up the radiation therapy.

Many thanks for all the well wishes, and I'll keep you posted with updates.
