Update on Nancy

Nancy's surgeons reported that she came through her surgery well.  She is now awake (although groggy) in a private room.  She tells us that she feels like she's been hit by a truck, but hopefully the pain medicine will assist with that soon.  The surgical oncologist reports that her sentinel nodes look clear; however, final pathology results are pending. They will also know more about staging the cancer once the pathology is completed, but no surprises were reported.   A port was placed for chemo, which should begin once some initial healing is completed.  The prayers of so many are greatly appreciated by Nancy and all of us in her family.  She will continue to need your prayers and support for quite some time.  We are thankful that everything seems to be going as well as could be expected so far.  Thank you all again for your encouragement, support, and most of all lifting Nancy's name up in prayer!
