Pathology

You will have to excuse me if I don't make complete sense (narcotics will do that to you). I am feeling quite well! Better than expected and I am heading home tomorrow with 4 drains but I am heading home. The pathology came back today and all of my lymph nodes were clean (no cancer!). The margins came back clean too. I did still have a bit of desease in the left breast but it was taken out. We still need to talk to the oncologist to make sure I don't need any more chemo or radiation but I don't think he will recommend it. Now I just need to focus on recovery and taking tamoxifen for 5 years. Whew! Thank all of your for your prayers over the last few days. I could really feel them and I know John could feel them too.
