LUMPECTOMY - THE SEQUEL . . . Christmas Day

Nurses all over America are working this morning, missing the wonder, curiosity, and excitement of any children in the household.  Others, are patients in those hospitals.  Or patients at home, alone or with family.

I am worried about my leg pain and wondering about the rest of radiation and other therapy.

A friend sent a letter saying she had spent much of the year in hospital, on IVs, because of an infection that probably started in the hospital during or after surgery.  Now she is in need of more surgery.

Another friend is still taking a long term painful medicine for breast cancer.

The three of us are blessed to be home this Christmas.

But medical science still has much to do.
