Sandra Lee Will Undergo Surgery for a 'Monster' Infection

"I did my very best to avoid this," she wrote.

— -- Sandra Lee is scheduled to undergo surgery today for an infection.

"I did my very best to avoid this (when I tell you I did everything, I mean everything -- modern, Eastern and holistic) but infection is an incredible monster," she explained. "I am a long way from where I was and a long way from where I need to be, but at this point I understand that right now I just need to complete this unexpected phase of a tough journey."

"Although this is not a game -- and not to diminish or disrespect this process -- I think about it like a tennis match, as tennis is my favorite sport. Right now the ball is in my court and it's time for a mean backhand -- and I am taking that shot," she wrote. "So my plan for tomorrow is game, set, match!"
