Good News From Surgery

Jen has been in surgery for about an hour now. She is just about finished. The doctor has already come out and told me that everything went great.

Her lymph node biopsy was negative, meaning that there was no evidence of cancer. In this case, negative is good. The tissue samples still have to go to pathology but they say there is only a 10% chance that pathology will find anything new.

Dr. Neumayer also showed me an ultrasound of the tissue they removed from Jen's breast. You could clearly see both the tumors. That should be all the cancer in her body. It's all gone!

It's weird to think this is such good news and she doesn't even know yet. She is going to be so happy! I can't wait to tell her.

I am sure Jen will post an update when she is awake and alert. I wanted to give everyone the good news.
Jen ready for surgery at 6:30am
