Hello Everyone! I had my remaining two drains removed on Thursday.. Yeah!!!!!! I was finally able to take my first shower on Friday and actually dry and curl my hair. Funny how such a small thing can seem so wonderful! I still have to keep my activity down and keep anything with repetition down with using my hands. Which, includes typing e-mail's. Hard to not do in this day in age. (This will be my quick exception.) We go back to the doctors in a couple weeks to continue the process of the reconstruction. They will start putting fluid in my breast to begin the work of stretching the skin. I never realized it was such a process. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers! We are truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and family! Love, Michelle

We met yesterday with Michelle's surgeon and the results were great from the pathology report.
No invasive cancer. So there will be no chemo or radiation needed. So now she just needs to heal up and get back to feeling her self. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers.

Michelle had two of her fluid drain tubes removed today and is feeling really good. We went to CheekWood gardens after the doctors visit to relax in the gardens for awhile and then went out to a nice lunch afterwards. She goes in next Thursday to have the other two drain tubes removed. We really appreciate everyones support during this time.

Michelle came home today. The kids were jumping for joy when mom came home today. She is really doing great, but we need to tell her to please rest and not try to do too much. She is back pretty much to a normal diet and is enjoying the great meals that have been showing up. Thank you all for all of your kindness.

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let everyone know that Michelle is doing great!She is sore and very tired which can be expected. We are just so happy everything went smoothly. Her surgery was 45 minutes late getting started but she was finished around 3:30pm. She is resting now in her room. The doctor said she will be released on Friday. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. Well I'm back to the hospital after the kids go to bed.
