Well Nicole has emerged from a second surgery on Tuesday and today was blessed with 'clean margins' from Pathology. That essentially means they have removed enough tissue that the tumor can officially be considered gone! Nicole is sore but feeling much better already than the last surgery.
We meet again with the surgeon tomorrow and expect to get a hug and a hand-off to the next stage.
Much time and many treatments ahead, but for now, we'll take the positive tone and run with it.
