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!
