Giuliana Rancic's husband says she's doing well after surgery

129197545cropped.jpgGiuliana Rancic is doing well after surgery, according to her husband Bill.  The E! anchor recently announced on "Today" that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.  Shortly after that, she went through a double lumpectomy.  On Thursday (Oct. 19), Bill gave "Today" an update on his wife's condition.

He told the show that Giuliana's surgery began with a two-hour MRI that involved guide wires inserted into one breast so the surgeon could see what to remove. Then came a mammogram and a guide wire in the other breast, then surgery to remove the lumps. "She's a trooper, she pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out and is doing well at home," Bill said.  "I'm adding nurse to my resume now."

Bill said that her prognosis is good and that this has changed her outlook on life.  "We're viewing this as a gift. It was caught very very early and we're going back to the doctor tomorrow," Bill said. "They had to remove a couple of lymph nodes and we're hoping we get a report tomorrow." He said she hopes to return to work sometime next week.

Giuliana, get well soon! Let's not forget that this is breast cancer awareness month. Everyone take a moment to check yourselves, and get those mammograms.
