Results and Scheduled Events

Well, today I had a post-chemo/pre-surgery ultrasound. From what they told me, the tumor didn’t change significantly from the December ultrasound. I was a little sad that it hadn’t shrunk, but it’s still good that it’s less than half it’s original size.

I received some good news while at the doctor’s office. I got a phone call from the geneticist, and I am NOT a carrier of either of the known breast cancer genes. This doesn’t mean that I don’t have a genetic connection; just not one that’s known yet. I still am considered at high risk, so I will have to be checked more often.

I have surgery scheduled for March 7th and am getting very anxious about it. I know it’s what needs to be done, and I’m glad to finally have the cancer removed from my body, but it’s a major surgery, and to be totally honest, I’m really scared. I still have some decisions to make about surgery, so I would appreciate you prayers regarding these decisions.

Here’s what’s coming up:

February 22nd – Blood work

February 29th – Oncology appointment

March 7th – Surgery

Looks like my Fridays are booked up for the next three weeks.  Thanks for all of your prayers!

    Hang in there, I know surgery can make you anxious and having this many days to wait doesn’t help but it will all be over before you know it. Everywhere I go people are always asking about you and praying for you. I love you and you are in our constant prayers, I keep you necklaces on at most times so you are always in my thoughts as well. Hang in there the worst part is over.

    P.S. I’ll give you half of my breast so you can new ones 🙂 I don’t need this much:)

    Hanging with my mom who just had ACL surgery and we’ve just been talking about you and how much love/prayers we’re sending your way, so I just thought I’d let you know that!! xoxo
