Breast Cancer Update

 Well I am a little bit lopsided now but all went well and I got home this afternoon. Now I need to heal and do follow up and eventually get chemo. The good thing is that it was caught early and the lymph nodes were not infected at all. I sure had wonderful doctors and nurses caring for me. They were the best as far as I was concerned. I ended up staying overnight too. And I still need that haircut but maybe my daughter who is staying for a few days can trim me up a bit so I don't look like such a Raggedy Ann.  Hahaa! 

Below are the flowers and balloons that I got while in the hospital. They are all so gorgeous and I thank all who sent them. They are from my sister and her daughter and the other bouquet and balloons are from my children and their families. 



Take this as a reminder to be sure and keep up with the mammograms and get those girls check out every year. I am glad I was in that habit.

Take care and thanks for all the cards, good thoughts and prayers.

God bless,

Verna
