I want to thank each of you for your well wishes and prayers. I had surgery last Tuesday. They removed the lump and 3 lymph nodes. The preliminary test did not find any cancerous cells in my lymph nodes. The surgeon had not gotten the final test results when I left the hospital Thursday evening. He is out of town and I won't hear FROM HIM until Wednesday. i AM A LITTLE SORE, BUT I am very thankful. None of the injections or tests were as bad as anticipated. I have a drain which I came home with.
