    Survived another long surgery

    Update: last week, my newly (14.5 months) constructed back held up to having a 9 hr mastectomy with reconstruction! In addition to worrying about cancer, I was worried about my back. I told everyone I came into contact with that my back doesn't bend or twist! Surgery results are good - no cancer in the lymph nodes. Waiting to hear what's next. Thank you for your prayers & positive thoughts!
