NEW YORK, May 25 (UPI) -- Celebrity chef Sandra Lee headed home Monday after undergoing a double mastectomy last week to treat breast cancer.
"Today is an exciting day! 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!" said a message on her official Facebook page.
The author and TV personality -- who is also the longtime girlfriend of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo -- has been updating her fans and wellwishers about her condition via social media.
"Update: Day three was harder on Sandra. The nurses call it the "hit by a truck" day. #breastcancerawareness," her team tweeted Friday.
On Saturday, they shared: "This morning was the toughest for Sandra. It seems the pain is at its peak."
