Thanks again to everyone who commented on the blog and sent emails wishing my grandmother well before surgery.
She underwent a mastectomy last Tuesday and was released from the hospital on Wednesday. The last few days she has been resting and feeling better each day. On Thursday we will see her surgeon for a post-operative appointment and get the pathology results. I am grateful to the competent and professional doctors and nurses at Stony Brook Hospital who cared for my grandmother, and of course to her wonderful surgeon, a breast cancer specialist, who performed the operation.
This will be another hectic week as I prepare to return to work and see my endocrinologist for a follow-up thyroid appointment on Tuesday — but not to worry, posts will be up as usual.
