I haven't written for a bit because it has been a crazy and numbing sort of week. My surgeon called last Friday to let me know that in the body scan that was done to prepare for diep flap surgery(they use fat and tissue from your belly to reconstruct after mastectomy) they found an anamoly in my hip bone that was "suspicious". I have truly learned to hate the word suspicious. I now have a pavlovian response and go right for the wine bottle.
The reason I decided on a mastectomy even though the brac2 tests came back negative and my cancer wasn't large, was that I have 2, yes 2 kinds of cancer; DCIS and LSIC in 2 different parts of my breast. Wooo hoooo,, lucky me. So I qualify for the , as I call it, "tummy tuck reconstruction". I will be beautiful dahlink! Again, lucky me.
My wonderful parents came up to keep me occupied , my husband took off to worry with me, my boys did anything they could, including arguing over who next has to get something for mom. The rest of my fabulous friends and family sent light, love, and prayers.
Well my wonderful, loving people something worked. My oncologist called yesterday afternoon. The bone biopsy came back NEGATIVE! So again I say Wooo Hooo! Lucky Me!
AND THANK YOU,
Love and light,
