I have an update on Cindy, and the news is excellent!
After completing her chemo a little over a month ago, we got away to Tampa for the event at Lazydays. Thanks to so many of you who stopped by to see her and wish her well.
Last Monday afternoon, 4/13, she had surgery -- a modified mastectomy. She came through in great shape, even to the point where the plastic surgeon started the first steps on reconstruction. After getting out of recovery a little before 5:00, she was "mostly" awake and visiting with one of our daughters and me until around 9:00. She was kept overnight for monitoring of vitals and pain level, and got through with no need for pain meds after 8:00 p.m.
For the past week she has feeling great. We've had two follow-ups that have gone well, and might be able to have the drains out at the end of this week. She's back in the office for a half day today.
Yesterday came the best news. The pathology report came back confirming no tumors or cancer cells in the lymph nodes! After about five weeks working on expansion and reconstruction, she'll have six weeks of radiation. By the time we get to the FROG Rally in August, this will all be behind us and will be a victory that we achieved working together.
Thanks to God, the medical team, our family, and all of our FROG friends for your calls, cards, e-mails, and other expressions of concern and support.
