Carolyn had her surgery this morning at 6:00. The doctors removed two nodes, one from her breast and another from her groin. Initially, they told us that they would test one before removing the other. Today, however, they said they were going to remove nodes from both spots and do a thorough biopsy on each.
So… Carolyn is sleeping as I type (we just arrived back home), and that sounds good to me too! Whew, after her whirlwind of a Nutcracker photography experience (five straight days) and then surgery, I think I’m going to let her slide for supper tonight…. but not for dessert…. 😉 JUST KIDDING.
We won’t hear back on the biopsies until later this week, so I’ll keep you posted here. Many thanks for the emails, Facebook messages, tweets, and calls!

Carolyn was first diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease in 1991. Since then, it's been a wild, crazy cancer saga.
