I come to you guys today with lots of thank yous!!! The last 10 days have been very trying for me personally, not being able to drive, not being able to care totally for my children, not being able to clean house (NOT REALLY(: ) with not being able to do all the things that I do there have been a lot of people here to help out. Just when I was feeling down and out, there my friends and family are to pick me up. The things that each person has done for me lately has really humbled me and made me realize how loved I am. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE - I can't mention each of you because lord I don't want to leave anyone out, but I so appreciate each of you!
NOW update from appointment TODAY......the cancer is NOT in my lymph nodes - GREAT NEWS!!!! THIS IS AN ANSWER TO MANY PRAYERS!!! The surgeon ordered a test today called Oncotype (SP) this will determine whether I have chemo or not and also if I am at a higher risk for cancer to come back somewhere else (if high I will more than likely have chemo) - my medical oncologist (which I haven't met yet) will be the one who tells me these results in 10-14days. We did find out today my cancer was a STAGE 2 and one of the margins she tested was negative - BUT CLOSE (which means we take more tissue out to test) for IDC. So when I have surgery on May the 5th, she (the surgeon) will take more tissue out in the general area and send that off for pathology too. We want all that tissue to be NEGATIVE without a doubt. So we have jumped a huge hurdle for me today!
Again, I can't tell you how very thankful I am for the gracious thoughts and the acts of kindness - it has been so very amazing to know I am loved. 13 days and counting till surgery and learning more things about my treatment steps!!! GOD IS GOOD!!!
