Surgery is complete

I just visited briefly with both Dr. S’s about Nancy’s surgery. They are done and she is having the surgery wounds dressed. I will get to see her in about an hour or two once she clears recovery and is moved to ICU. I will post another update once that happens.

Both doctors were all smiles and they expressed a lot of satisfaction with the outcome. I’m not going to post the details – do you really need to know how many grams each breast facsimile weighs? – but they seemed pretty proud of themselves about sculpting a nice new figure for Nancy. We shall see, Nancy has expressed that mostly she just doesn’t want to look like “ground under repair” anymore if I can borrow a golf term.

So it sounds like good news. Look for at least one more update tonight.

Update: I forgot to mention the surgeons did find some spots of active infection still after 200 days of antibiotics. Incredible. One benefit of this procedure should be to help by physically removing most or all of it. And it confirms the value of Nancy’s amazing persistence in never missing a dose. Unfortunately it also means the drug-taking will continue – and these aren’t the fun kind.
