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!

Penny,

The blog is a great idea! I do one for my husband (www.thetathams.blogspot.com) who was diagnosed with cancer 3 years ago.

With the help of family, friends, and lots of prayers, you will get through this! It's amazing how we find the strength when we need it.
