This afternoon’s appointment was with the Nurse Practitioner for our surgeon. Another woman we just love! They were running about an hour behind so we sat in the waiting room “people watching.” You really know that you’ve been going to the doctor way too much when the employees start knowing who you are!!!
Two good things came out of today’s appointment. #1: There is NO cancer in Patty!!! All of the cancer has been removed! #2: Patty will never have to have a mammogram on her left breast for the rest of her life!
The Nurse Practitioner was amazed at how well the first step in the reconstruction was looking. She said: “Oh Patty… this looks great! You’re going to be very happy when it’s done!” Then she made a comment about what great work the reconstruction doctor does and how she was thinking of having a “lift!” (Way too much information for me!)
She did say that most likely Patty will need to go through chemo since there was a lymph node involved, but then again, that will be the call of the oncologist. So, the next appointment is with the oncologist on Wednesday afternoon.
