Friends! Everything went great with my sister Amy last night. I put a quick update post on her blog before I went to bed. Her surgery didn't take as long as we thought, and the word is that her sentinel lymph node is clear.
That was a big question, as a bad node almost certainly would have meant follow-up with chemotherapy. I'm hoping nobody will want to do that now. The surgeon also felt confident that he got the entire mass, though the pathologist will confirm the margins over the next couple of days.
This is good, good, good. I talked to her last night. She was pretty groggy and going to spend the night in the hospital. So the surgeon did his job and I did my job, which was to hang around on social media and also read text messages and drink two glasses of wine. We all had important things to do.
I went to bed feeling much lighter.
Then, we slept in this morning. The kids are on holiday as of today and don't go back until Wednesday. I got to play a doubles match this morning with Pretty Neighbor and some buds, and it was 60 degrees and gorgeous. We were going to go to the mountains, as I'd said, but between it being just the four of us, and the fact that it's going to rain there Saturday and Sunday, I think we'll hang around here. It will be nice to have an unprogrammed weekend, actually. I need to reread our book club book (Serena), and Matt and I have some heavy-duty tax/financial/budget planning to do. I also hope to get some good walks in. I know, I'm pretty boring today.
And that is good.
