The breast surgeon’s assistant called Diane with a mini report.  The surgeon is trying to get a definitive answer on any risks involved in keeping the left nipple, that is the one that was a concern going into this.  The left breast had the most going on inside it, the right one not so much.  They do know that there was no cancer present, and that is the most important news of all.

We will be meeting with the breast surgeon on Friday during Diane’s scheduled appointment to discuss the pathology report in greater detail.  We will know then, what the recommendation will be for the right nipple.  That’s all we know for now.

OK, first the bad news.  It’s only bad news because it is no news, yet.  I’m not very good at waiting, for example; I can’t wait until all this is a memory in our past.  More on the news front, starting in the morning.

Diane called the plastic surgeon’s office to report on the drainage levels.  I empty the reservoirs twice a day, but the 6:30am one is the one that needs to be constant.  Diane is supposed to call the office once a day and report the 24hr amount.  Today was the first day she could call in due to the weekend.  Diane talked to the office manager and she told her the amounts looked good.  So now Diane has an appointment with the plastic surgeon Thursday morning and if all goes well the drains will be removed.  That would be welcomed by both of us, but especially the “wonderful, beautiful” patient.  (That was for anyone that thinks I am doing this to build up points with the “wonderful, beautiful” patient  😉 .)

It snowed more than 1″ last night, the snow stuck to all the trees, bushes, grass, and even coated the wood fence on the north faces.  The roads were too warm so the snow melted right away, the only areas that could cause difficulty were the bridges and overpasses.  The boys went to church this morning, while I stayed home with Diane and rested.

Diane’s home and still improving.  I’m glad to have her home :-), but I’ve lost my favorite chair temporarily :-(, oh well… I will survive.  I can’t believe how busy things have been for me, I was wondering how I would be passing the time while at the hospital.  You know, with all the people they have there to take care of Diane what would I do all day.  That was not a problem, Diane was keeping me busy.  It was difficult finding the time to blog too.  Now that we are home we have two other helpers here, they can help with some of the little things that Diane needs too.

Diane is doing much better today.  She slept good last night, she had her little snacks with the meds to ward off nausea.  She looks good, her color is all back, and she is in better spirits.  She had her sponge bath today, yesterday they decided not to do one because of the way she was feeling.

The pastor called this morning and asked if Diane wanted him to come by, it is spring break and the pastor and his family were out of town for a few days.  We had a nice visit with him just before lunch.
