Home from surgery

Well my sister is home. I've talked to her a couple of times. She had a pretty good size incision on the top of her shoulder. They were able to remove everything that was found. Then with the radiation and testing over the past couple of weeks they found a lymph node that the cancer had spread to.

They did a large incision under her arm (in the pit area) and took out the lymph node and part of the muscle at the ribs where it was connected. She will go back to the doctor on the 29th to be retested to see if there is any more cancer in the body and to remove her stitches.

She is doing pretty well considering and has enough medication to keep her looped for a few weeks.
