Well, I came through the mastectomy with flying colors.
Came home from the hospital on Saturday, and was in a rental car on my way to Alabama Sunday morning.
My father passed away Saturday evening, they could not release the body until I, who is the eldest of the 3 children released it.
IT just seems that life will not give me any peace, everytime I get through one problem there seems to be another jut waiting in the back to pop out at me.
I did get good news today from the path report...all lymphs were clean, the margin was in excellent range...due to the size of th tumors chemo is sill not ruled out but I will find that out tomarrow.
The plastic surgeon was not able to begin reconstruction due to the  lymph nodes, so as soon as I find out tomarrow whether I need chemo or not I will be able to schedule to reconstruction portion
Other then the emotional part of everything, I am feeling great, no pain, it is amazing what they are able to do these days.
I have even gotten over the idea of letting my husband see me with out a top on, he was too amazed out what I have been through and how good verything looks.....Other then walking a llittle lop-sided I am doing fine.lolololololol.
Thanks for all your prayers, and thoughts...THEY WORKED.

Glad too hear that all went well with your surgery. I'm so sorry for the loss of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Great news on your nodes. I hope your recovery stays on the good side and you keep moving ahead.
I had a bilaterial last year and looking at my chest doesn't bother me so much as I am choosing not to have reconstruction. Hubby and I discussed it and he is very supportive. Hope you can tart your reconstruction soon.
Feel good!
The true joy of life is in the journey
