I've got CLEAN MARGINS! I've got CLEAN MARGINS!

Unexpectedly, Dr. Nancy called this evening and said she got the pathology report and although there had been some residual ACC left near where the biopsy was, I now no longer have ANY cancer left! THE MARGINS WERE CLEAN!!!! My left breast biopsy was also clean. They even took out some lymph nodes near the old tumor and those were clean too-- I really feel cancer free! I could tell she was excited to call me--it really was the first good report I have had. The residual cancer was her fear in the first place--why she decided I needed the mastectomy--so it was definitely the right thing to do so that didn't surprise me. But nothing showed up anywhere else. Although we didn't talk about it, I am pretty sure that means no radiation either. I see her Wednesday at 1:00 to hopefully get my drain out and some new, clean bandages.

Going to be short tonight--just wanted to pass on the new news! Had a great dinner tonighwhat a relief for Jim who has to do just about everything now. I get tired easily but did manage to stay awake about 6 hours so far! : )

More tomorrow. Thank you all for your prayers!

YIPPEE! HURRAH! YAHOOO! WHOOPEE! AND HUZZA! The two best words in the world --- CLEAN MARGINS.

If you need clean hair for your Wednesday appt,I can shampoo or we can make that trip to the "say-lon"

You can relax now and get the rest you deserve. Tell Jim to sit back too ----- a chuck wagon will arrive with dinner each night.

We love you, heck's sakes - we love Dr. Nancy, and we sure as #^*+@ love CLEAN MARGINS!
