What an excellent day in the battle against cancer.
Nicole is all done with her surgery and is in the recovery room, waking up from some good anesthesia. By all accounts, everything went very smoothly. Both doctors said that things went as well as they could have hoped for. The highlight, of course, is hearing Dr. Barber say the magical phrase “complete pathological response”. We’ll stay in the hospital overnight and can stay until Sunday if she wants to.
There is plenty left on her path – appointments, recovery, expansion, and another surgery around the end of the year to replace her expanders with implants – but today is certainly a HUGE milestone.
Thanks again to everyone for the extraordinary support.
