Yep. Less than 24 hours after surgery, and I am surrounded by pillows and blankets on my own couch in my own living room! The new and improved me comes complete with two drains, one in each side, as well as a "compression" cami. Ahhh, life IS good!

This morning first thing, my friend who spent the night in the hospital with me went down to the Starbucks in the lobby of the hospital (ya gotta love Seattle!) and brought me up a tall, nonfat, one-pump pumpkin spice latte. It's the new official drink of post mastectomites everywhere!

I know you all are concerned about my pain level. Let's see...Right now as I type it hovers in the 3-4 range...not too bad, thank-you oxycontin. I am looking forward to sleeping in my very own bed. So good.

Dr. F was very encouraging. He said it went very well and that he is 95% sure the nodes are clear. I will find out for sure on Monday when I go have the drains removed. Thanks for your care and concern and the many prayers and petitions sent up on my behalf. God is real.

Continuing to pray for more of both!
