Sandra Lee Returning Home After Undergoing Double Mastectomy: ‘Today Is an Exciting Day’.

Food Network star Sandra Lee, who is also the longtime girlfriend of Gov. The celebrity chef, 48, who is battling breast cancer and currently healing from a double mastectomy, shared a photo Monday to tell her followers that she is headed home.“Today is an exciting day!” a post on the Food Network star’s Facebook account read Monday. “Sandra is going home to Lilly Pond with her sister Kimber and Governor Cuomo. She is most excited to sleep in her own bed — and see Phoenix and Halo when she wakes up!” On Sunday, Sandra’s team took to the social media service to express gratitude for all who have reached out to Governor Cuomo’s longtime girlfriend as she recovers. “Sandra’s team here,” the post read. “She says today is a better day, but she still has a ways to go. Staff for Sandra Lee (l.) posted the photo at right on Facebook saying “we want to thank so many people for reaching out and taking the time to send such beautiful flowers, fruits, chocolates, notes and emails.” Lee had anticipated leaving the hospital Friday after her Tuesday surgery.

The 48-year-old TV chef went under the knife after undergoing a lumpectomy on one breast — and after her doctor warned she was a “ticking time bomb.” Women diagnosed with Lee’s condition — ductile carcinoma in situ, which many doctors consider a precancerous condition — have a 25% to 30% chance of a recurrence if they get a lumpectomy. Lee has also some celebrity friends in her corner who have been through similar ordeals — actresses Rita Wilson and Christina Applegate, both of whom had mastectomies. With frequent updates to reporters and on Facebook and Twitter, the spokeswoman said Lee wanted to chronicle her entire ordeal to help other women who may be facing breast cancer. Diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer in late March, Lee only went public with the news last week in interviews with “Good Morning America” and People magazine.
