As Giuliana Rancic recovers from surgery following her recent revelation that she is battling breast cancer, the E! News anchor's supportive husband, Bill Rancic, gave an update on the Today show this morning.

"She's a trouper, she pulled through it and was kind of relieved to get it over with and get the cancer out and is doing well at home," Bill said while talking about the double lumpectomy that his wife had just undergone. "It was kind of a long day. There's many steps in the process when you go through this because it was on both breasts."

However, he and Giuliana remain positive.

"We're viewing this as a gift," insisted Bill. "It was caught very, very early and we're going back to the doctor tomorrow. They had to remove a couple of lymph nodes and we're hoping we get a report tomorrow."

While the next step for Giuliana will be radiation treatment, the Fashion Police cohost is planning to get back to work next week.

"She's excited," Bill said. "But she's really viewing life a little bit differently. It's funny, when you go through a situation like this, it really turns the volume down on the things that really aren't that important."
