Mastectomy Complete! More to go.

Dr Bill Barber has informed me that Clare’s double mastectomy is now completed; she is doing very well.

Clare is now facing a few more hours of reconstructive surgery to rebuild her breasts, using her own tissues; much of it from her abdomen. She did not want implants.

For procedure details:
DIEP Flap – Breastcancer.org

So, maybe 5+ more hours ‘on the table’ for Clare.

    1. Been shouting across the street over the dogs ( you know the routine) to get up dates….your daughter was in a happy , twirling maze of trick or treaters last night. We are all connected to you my dear.

  2. Still thinking of you!! What a marathon surgery. I’m happy it’s all getting done at the same time though. It sounds like all is going well and you have some amazing surgeons.

  3. Jay, I am praying for Clare and the doctors who are caring for her. Thank you for sharing her progress.

  4. Great news – part 1 done… Now part 2.
    Jay – how are you and Clare’s parents holding up?
    Big hug!
