Julie’s Surgery – Update

Julie’s surgery was today.  The surgery is over, and the report is that things went well.  She’s waking up in recovery now.  She’ll be home soon, and she’ll have more information for us then.

Join me in wishing Julie the best as she kicks cancer’s butt!

6/24/11 Update from me (Julie)

Thanks to everyone for their support, thoughts, kind words and get well wishes. 🙂 All that positive energy worked. I was sent home around noon yesterday and am doing great. Have only had to take regular old ibuprofen for the pain twice. Doubt if I’ll need to do that anymore. The worst part so far is having to sleep on my back… so if that’s my only complaint, things can’t be that bad. I just have to cross my fingers that pathology reports come back with good news as far as lymph  node involvement. They know that cancer cells were in the main node (sentinel node), so they took 15-20 more nodes after that one and will test them all. If they find cancer cells in those, that means I’ll have to have radiation treatments in addition to more treatments. Hmmm, I wonder if radiation would give me a super power like Spiderman? 😉
