Diane is in her room now.  The nurse is getting her I.V. and pain med delivery system set up.  She is doing well, though groggy.  The plastic surgeon had Valium administered to help her relax as she came out of anesthesia.

I received word that Diane’s breast surgeon started the procedure at 8:00 am. The time frame that we were told to expect was two hours for each surgeon and one hour in recovery. Then if all is well Diane will be sent up to her room.

We saw the breast surgeon in the prep area and she introduced her assisting surgeon. By using two surgeons the mastectomy is completed quicker, allowing the plastic surgeon as much time as he needs to complete his work. The breast surgeon informed us that the plastic surgeon we are using is pretty meticulous in his work so they like to give him that little bit of extra time.

E-Mails that are sent to our address (b lo g 4 d i a ne at g m a i l dot c o m) can be received on my Blackberry phone now too.  I will be able to read your messages to Diane as she recuperates at the hospital and she can read them when she feels ready.

I set up an e-mail address at Gmail for those that want to send words of encouragement to Diane, or want to ask her a question, but don’t want to make a public comment.

The Contact Form is listed above in the page header and in the left column near the subscriptions link.  The form sends your message directly to our e-mail address.  We look forward to hearing from you.

You can send a message via email too, just take out the spaces and replace the at and dot with the appropriate symbols (spam prevention).
