Cathy Update: Good News – July 20 at 11:45 pm

24 Aug

July 20, 2010 (email sent from Bob at 11:45pm)

Hi again.
 
Cathy is doing good… talking, smiling… a little groggy. The team of surgeons and staff at Lake Forest have been great.
 
The pain is under control and she should be able to get some much needed sleep tonight. She will be in the hospital for 3-4 days.
 
If any of Cathy’s local friends were planning to stop by the hospital, she has asked me to relay that she is not really ready for that just yet… but I’ll let you know if/when that changes. We hope you understand.
 
The good news is that the surgeon took some lymph nodes to see if the cancer had spread, and all of them were cancer free! This also means that she may not have to do chemo. Ultimately, that decision will be up to her oncologist. So it looks great… but a few more prayers are always appreciated! She was so happy to hear that news.
 
And of course, she’ll never have to worry about breast cancer again!
 
Again, Cathy and I can’t thank you enough for all the encouragement and support from our family and friends. Sorry if this note is a little disheveled… but it’s been a long day.  🙂
 
Sincerely,
Bob
