We arrived home from the hospital a bit ago. Surgery went as well as could be expected. They didn’t have to take my aortic lymph nodes, and the flash freeze of my now-departed pelvic lymph nodes showed no cancer. The full pathology report will come back next week, but we have every reason to be optimistic that they got it early and got it all.

For now I’m sore and swollen and alternating between resting and walking (although I’m not allowed any more strenuous activity than that for a few weeks). But I’m kind of amazed that you can have a hysterectomy and be home 30 hours later, and I’m very glad that I get to spend tonight in my own bed.

More news as we have it.
