Resting.....


I'm home.  
Surgery went well and I am resting comfortably.  
I spent two days in the hospital and I am enjoying the back porch again.  
The pain is bearable....the incisions are healing, only one drain tube left (3 were removed yesterday on a followup visit), my armpits hurt, actually everything hurts, but I know it will get better.  

The pathology report came back and that was good with the fact that radiation will follow.  

I am doing my arm exercises, walking, and napping with Otis and Riley.  


Thank heavens it's over.....  

and thank you for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.
