Sandra Lee publicly thanks doctors after double mastectomy

Cuomo also thanked everyone for the “tremendous outpouring of support.”

Food Network star Sandra Lee, who is recovering from a double mastectomy, took to Facebook yesterday to post photos and share her thanks for those who treated her.

“I am deeply grateful to all of the doctors, nurses, medical attendants and my skilled surgeons from the Dubin Breast Center — Mount Sinai Hospital,” Lee wrote. “During my stay at Mount Sinai’s (St. Luke’s) Roosevelt Hospital, the entire team provided excellent care, with genuine compassion and concern every step of the way.”

For the second time in the past few days, Lee, 48, posted a photo of herself and longtime boyfriend Gov. Andrew Cuomo laughing on a couch together. Her bird, Phoenix, was front and center in the image posted yesterday.

Meanwhile, Cuomo thanked the hospital staff and nurses who cared for Lee, but said she has a “long road ahead.” In a statement, Cuomo also gave a general thanks for the “tremendous outpouring of support.”
