WASHINGTON (JCHAYWARD.com) — Usually, JC would write her own entry for this story. However, she is recovering from her lumpectomy, so she’ll be out of the office for a while.
Her surgery went really well. She went into the operating room, joking and keeping up everyone’s spirits. She never stopped smiling, all the way until she was put under by the anesthesiologist. Just before she was put under, she asked for her “Peeps” and the group of medical professionals to find her a young, single and handsome doctor for her to steal away, jokingly.
Her surgery took about an hour and 15 minutes. The surgeon cut her in three different places.
The first incision was to check to see if the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes.
The second incision was to remove the the benign tumor in her breast and the surrounding tissue. Even though this tumor was not cancerous, the doctors wanted to make sure to be safe.
The third incision, also know as, the most important incision was to remove the malignant tumor from JC’s right breast. The doctor took out the tumor and it was immediately sent to the pathologist. The pathologist asked the surgeon to remove more tissue surrounding the tumor, to safely say all the cancer was removed from her breast.
After all that, the surgery was successfully concluded and she woke up shortly afterward. JC’s first question, after waking up, was “Does anyone have any lipstick?” Then, she asked if the crew had found her that young, handsome doctor she had requested.
JC is doing just fine and she’s anxious to get back to work. We here at Channel 9 and her closest friends are going to be extremely careful with our legendary anchorwoman, to make sure she gets the rest she needs before returning to her dominating role as the number one news anchor at Noon.
