Surgery Day

 Yesterday was my lumpectomy.  
We arrived at the clinic and were assigned a number. 
 Lucky 13! 
 I say that in all sincerity. 
 It is a very lucky number for me. 
 This was just before they called me back.

This was as they were taking me back to surgery.

The procedure took a little over an hour and a half. 
 It was outpatient. 
 I got home and didn't have too much pain.
  They gave me some pain meds but when I went to bed I just took Tylenol and Motrin.
That seems to be controlling the pain so far. 
 I feel more sore but not really much pain.
Hopefully that makes sense.

They sent me home in a tube top thing like we used to wear in the 70's, LOL.
It opens in the front with velcro.
I can't take it off until tomorrow afternoon.
I am anxious to see what the incisions look like.
The doctor told Chris the margins were clear.
They took 1 or 2 Lymph nodes, I am not sure.
Those get sent for pathology and I should have results in about a week.
Hoping those are negative.
I think then they send the tumor for the oncotype.
If that comes back with a good score then I might be able to skip chemo.

I just wanted to update you all and let you know I am doing ok.
So we are just lounging around here today.
