Just a quick update as it's been a week since surgery.
Yesterday we received the final lab report confirming that her lymph nodes are negative for cancer. Great news in and of itself. I can't tell you how relieved I am.
We do have our first meeting with the Oncologist Friday where we should see the results of the genetic testing that was done and we should also be making a decision as to the need for chemotherapy. We're prepared for treatment if necessary, we're hoping they tell us it won't be. For you praying types, there's a focus for ye (and know please that we so appreciate your prayers).
I'm learning that my wife did one heckuva lot more around the house than I gave her credit for. I'm wore out but I'm also treasuring every minute I have with her. So far she tells me I'm not smothering her (and she's not the fibbing type) but she really is doing remarkably well. She insists on walking daily and has worked her way up to walking more than a couple of miles now in a single jaunt. Pretty incredible. I'm thinking I'd be curled up in a fetal position if they'd done to me what they've done to her. Tuesday evning, she insisted we go to Plaza to have dinner, this not an hour or so after a 2 mile walk. No margaritas for either of us (which was quite the sacrifice) but she did get to enjoy some of her favorite avocado dip. And of course, the company of her family.
Please do keep praying. This war will be a long one, but right now, we're winning the battles and kickin' some serious booty.
