A shower and clear margins!

Surgery, thankfully, went very well and yesterday was a fairly comfortable, if somewhat fuzzy, day of couch time with Gus. Getting up and moving was difficult but when I was planted on the couch the pain was really manageable.

Today has been a great one so far. I am off pain meds and doing great on ibuprofen only which makes my stomach and head so much happier. A shower this morning pretty much was life changing and putting on real clothes feels so much more normal.

Right after showering I received a call from my surgeon's office with great news - clear margins and a negative lymph node.  Praising God for that!

A visit from dad topped off my morning although Gus kind of hogged him.

Next week I'll see my surgeon and we'll discuss the next step, but for now I'll just enjoy this answered prayer and look forward to seeing Marc, Marie and Aiden in a bit.

I can't begin to express how much all the love and prayers have meant to all of us.

Thank you will never be enough.
