Aly is still back in surgery but will hopefully be out soon.
We got here this morning at 5:15 and were taken back like a herd to the pre-surgery room. This was the size of a small gym with about 25 different curtain divided "rooms" that they prep you for surgery in and then also wake you up after surgery. They took blood first thing, they then tried to start an iv, unsuccessfully 6 times. At that point the lady just said she would use the port to get medicine started and once they were in surgery they would get iv, since they were taking the port out.
The PA for Dr Babiera came in and administered more "dye" to help them locate the sentinel node on Aly's right side.
I was kicked out at this point and they took Aly back to surgery.
Dr. Babiera came out about 11:00 and said the surgery went well. Dr Babiera said that she tolerated the surgery really well and that Dr Villa was now doing his part. We will have information on the pathology next week. She felt positive about the right side and only took two lymph nodes. Dr. Babiera did not know how many lymph nodes were taken from right side but we should know that next week and also pathology for actual tissue that was removed.
All of the text and Facebook messages have been unreal. You will never know what life is given through a one sentence text. We love you guys and though you may not get a response that gives an accurate picture please know that it means the world to us. Aly will wake up with a phone that is full of texts and Facebook messages.
I will update at some point tonight to let you know how she is feeling.
Thank you again.
