Another Friday, another surgery

Hi this is Dave.  So another Friday, another surgery for Kelli. Today they removed the lymph nodes from Kelli's right armpit and also installed an injection port.  The lymph nodes are being tested to see how far the cancer has spread and to let the doctors determine the stage.  The port will make it easier for them to draw blood and administer the chemo later on.  Since it was optional, Kelli wasn't sure that she wanted to have it but after it took them 15 minutes to find a good vein for the IV she decided to have it put in. The surgery went as expected so now we are waiting to see how the tests turn out.  We should find out the results either Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning.  Thank you so much to everyone for your support and your prayers.
