Still waiting.......

Well, on Monday I thought I would know when my surgery was by Tuesday.....here it is Friday and I still don't have a date.  It's only cancer.......lol

Went to the surgeon on Monday and finally made up my mind!  Now I'm just waiting for a call letting me know when surgery will be.  Sounds like I will only have to stay in the hospital overnight, that's good.  We learned all the not so wonderful specifics to do with the surgery and recovery. 

I have had such amazing support since getting my diagnosis (especially from my terrific hubby and kids) and it means more than you all will probably ever know, THANK YOU!!! 

I will let you know what I find out as far as a date for surgery.

God is good!  I'll be fine!! :o)

Ok, so I can't make up my mind about the whole surgery thing so I probably won't know my surgery date on Monday.  Actually, I KNOW I won't know my surgery date on Monday because I haven't called the surgeon to let them know what I've decided....because I haven't decided!!  I'm starting to feel pressured and I don't like it! 

Pray for me!! :o)

In an attempt to keep everyone up-to-date on my progress, I've decided to TRY a blog. 
With work and everything else going on, I find I don't have quite enough hours in a day to keep everyone informed.

A little back ground...on July 28th I had a biopsy and on July 29th I was diagnosed with moderately differentiated infiltrating ductal carcinoma. (Breast Cancer)  Tests indicate it is an aggressive tumor, good news is I caught it fairly early.

Ok, so....GREAT news today...my PET scan came back and there is no other cancer in my body (just the lump originally found).  Yay!!!!  Quite a relief, I guess I was a little more worried than  I thought.  Prayer works wonders!!

I have an appointment on Monday with my surgeon and should get a date then for my surgery and whether I will have chemo before or after my surgery. 

Thank you all so much for your words of encouragement and prayers, they are GREATLY appreciated!
