Hi I have a sister that went to the hospital

Hi I have a sister that went to the hospital with pus coming out of her nipple. the drs. went in and took out some of the pus sacks. then went back in a couple days later and cleaned out more. Two days later they took off her right breast. They said she has squamous carcinoma cancer. We don't know what stage as she was too weak to take any lymph nodes. She has been in ICU for going on 3 weeks now. She has had 3 pints of blood as her hemoglobin count was low . Before they took her right breast off, her white blood count was over 95,000. After surgery, it appeared to slowly come back down to a normal range, So they tell us. Communication is limited. Can you give me any input on these events and the diagnosis? Thank you for your help.
