We truly appreciate  all the good thoughts and prayers from all of you as we faced my partner's breast cancer surgery.  The surgery was completely successful!  The surgeon said as far as she can tell (before the lab report is received) that she removed all the malignant tissue and there is no indication of any lymph node involvement. 

Also, we were treated very well by the MD and the staff.  All in all, as positive an outcome as could be in this situation!   Much happy dancing here tonight for me and the rest of the family.  DP is also happy but stoned on Darvocet. ;)

That's excellent news!  Is she still going to have to go through any chemo or radiation?

Yes, MIndy, thanks for asking.   We just met with the ongology radiologist yesterday and she'll have five weeks of radiation therapy, five days a week.  :(  I'm becoming more knowledgable about breast cancer than I wanted to be.  The odds for recurrence drop from 20 or 25% in the same breast to less than 8% with the radiation.  Those are odds we don't want to pass up.  That starts Monday.  

We meet with the OTHER oncology MD on Wed. and we'll hear about the chemo then.
