I’m going to try and let as many of Lori’s followers as I can know how she is doing. A short while ago Dr. Stanley called to let me know she came thru the surgery very well and is in recovery. It was a little more complex than what was anticipated because 2 of the 3 lymph nodes did not accept the dye most likely due to fibrosis so to be safe they did the more difficult part of the procedure and just removed them all. She was able to get the main mass entirely along with a small amount of the surrounding tissue so the lumpectomy was more than planned but to error on the safe side done as Lori had asked her to do. Unfortunately due to the hospital being in phase 1 we are unable to visit her tonight but will be able to phone her later when they have her up. She has to stay overnight because they had to place a drain in under her arm where those lymph nodes were to take away any extra fluids and she is going to be shown how to take care of that and tomorrow when they let me go get her they will be showing me the process as well so I can help her with it…that’s all I know at this time so more to follow.
