My daughter had a lumpectomy

I have two daughters. The older one is 45 and she called me this spring and said "Mother, can you come down? I am going to have a lumpectomy this week." So of course, I went steaming down. They would never, I think, have done a lumpectomy, they would have just done a simpler procedure if it hadn't been my history. And hereafter, her surgeon said well, she'll try draining it first because it probably is just going to be more of the same.
