In My Room and Doing Great!


Hi, everyone! I have been in my room for about two hours now and am doing great! I saw Dr. Lang in the recovery room and she seemed very pleased with how everything went. They did do some frozen sections during the surgery of some breast tissue and lypmph nodes and they were all negative. We will have a complete pathology report when we have my follow up appointment on Wednesday.

I am having very little discomfort so far. I have two drains on the left side and one on the right. The one on the right is pretty sore, but they gave me Vicodin and it feels much better.

They gave me a menu to order dinner and I'm having macaroni and cheese, mashed potatos with gravy, a chocolate brownie cupcake, and a slice of carrot cake! My appetite has come back with a vengence! After that, I plan on crawling into bed and going to sleep. I'm tired!

Thank you everyone for all your prayers and good thoughts today. I am so glad to have this behind me!

LOve you all!
Martha
