Two days after she returned home from the hospital following her double mastectomy, Sandra Lee is publicly thanking her doctors and caregivers for helping her in her continued battle with breast cancer.
"I am deeply grateful to all of the doctors, nurses, medical attendants and my skilled surgeons from the Dubin Breast Center - Mount Sinai Hospital. 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," the 48-year-old star wrote on her Facebook page on Wednesday, May 27.

Earlier this week, representatives for the TV chef similarly took to social media to announce Sandra was leaving the hospital after undergoing a double mastectomy on Tuesday, May 19.
"Today is an exciting day! Sandra is going home to Lilly Pond with her sister Kimber and Governor [Andrew] Cuomo. She is most excited to sleep in her own bed," a post on the star's Facebook page read.

Sandra previously revealed she had been diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ — a common form of noninvasive breast cancer contained within the breasts' milk ducts — during an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday, May 12.
"I just was still, I didn't even cry — I was stunned. And that's just how fast life turns — it turns on a dime," she said of the day she learned she had cancer.
