My sister had her surgery 3 weeks ago yesterday and they did a complete hysterectomy, removed her omentum, and a right radical mastectomy. She started to bleed the next day from her mastectomy site so back to surgery where they found a small vessel bleeding and repaired that. Her path reports shows microsopic cells on mutiple areas yet so she will have 2 more rounds of chemo. Also the ureter to the right kidney was damaged from the cancer and chemo so it is not open and at the end of March they will try to place a stent to open this ureter up. She still has a nephrostomy tube draining her right kidney.
She left to go home to ND for a week and then will be back for her next round of chemo and to deal with the ureter.
I feel very lucky and blessed to have watched her come back from death's door. The prayers of everyone here and the support has been awesome and I so appreciate your asking.
You are a gem.
Thank you so much everyone. I have been fortunate to catch a nasty URI so my head feel like the size of a giant beach ball.
You sweet words do make me feel special...........thanks my friends.
Thank you all, I am staying on the low dose of AD for now. I am using my Valium for the anxiety. I don't do sick well and now with the sun out and it being spring break, I just want to be out of the doom and gloom of all for awhile.
My youngest son tells me eactly what you do when I doubt myself as a Mom and how much I can do to help them.
I know that my prolbems are real and that all of you are always so supportive and I thank each of you for the support. My sister will be back on the 25th for her next round of chemo.
I did not see her before she left as I did not want to expose her to the nasty URI I have going on.
OK, pity party over, they do not help me and I know what I need to do, STAY IN The Moment, which is right now, right here.

Aw shucks, thank you all. I got the emails and I so appreciate everything.
I did go out to lunch with my son and daughter today. I felt such relieve when I came home and saw the posts re the fiasco and the telling of the truth. It lifted the weight off my shoulders to know it was out in the open and we can all move on.
Much love to my HW family.
