Surgery successful, ready for chemo tomorrow

Flowers from the staff at Hammond Henry.
Mom made it through the port-installation surgery this morning just fine. Dr. Atwell ended up putting it on the right side of her chest...he had mentioned maybe putting it back on the left side again before they took her into surgery, but it didn't work out that way.

Dr. Atwell also removed a lump from the right side of her neck. Not really sure what it is, and the nurses sent it to the pathology lab so they can analyze it. Dr. Atwell didn't seem to be concerned about it and mom was glad it was out as it had been bothersome. It had been there since last summer so they decided to give her a 2-for-1 on the surgical procedures today.

They should have the results in a couple of days.

Other than some soreness, mom will be ready for her first dose of chemo tomorrow.
