Home Again, Home Again
This is Steve again - Marsi stayed the night at the hospital, which was well needed due to the nausea and pain she was in. They took care of her all night and the surgeon saw her in the morning, clearing her to go home. All did go well and Marsi is recovering perfectly. I picked her up at 10AM, after seeing H run the 880 at school for his Jr Olympics and brought her home. She is too tired to write, concentrate or post anything on Facebook yet, so I am continuing my duties. She is in good spirits and continues to amaze me with her strength and positive attitude. The surgeon did indicate that she feels she got all the cancer due to the tumor being located more forward (as opposed to closer to the chest wall) and shrinking much as it did during chemo. Also, she was encouraged by the fact the lymph nodes looked surprisingly unaffected. We have to wait about a week and the surgeon will call back with the pathology results. Then, we will know for sure if the cancer has spread or not, which will determine our next step on this long journey. Until then keep all your prayers and positive energy pointed our way. Marsi still has a long road ahead of her, but now we know, without a doubt, that my beautiful warrior WILL be a survivor.
