(That's breast cancer surgery humor folks.... getting something off my chest (get it??) Don't tell me you've gone all stale and given up on me.
Thanks to thisoldbroad and susies1955 for leaving comments that reminded me that I owe all of you an update. I've been too busy brooding to remember that you guys actually do care about me. I'm sorry and promise to do a better job in the future.
The surgery was almost two weeks ago. A 3.1 mm mass was removed along with 2 lymph nodes. The biopsy report revealed that the tissue removed had non-cancerous margins and there was no lymph node involvement. That's about as good as it can get for breast cancer results, yes? I'm scheduled to meet with my oncologist this coming Friday where I will find out about radiation and possibly chemo treatments.
I know I have the biggest part of the battle ahead of me but finally finding out what exactly it is I'm facing will help me tremendously. I have always feared the unknown. (Mags you are so profound, girl.)
Anyway, if chemotherapy is necessary I'm ready to go and my only plea to God and thee is that if I have to lose my hair, please at least let me lose my mustache too.
I'll be back with another update in a few weeks. It's almost my 3rd blogiversary!
This is my documentation of my life after turning 50. Lots of recipes, some healthy, some not so much... tossed up with a hefty dose of sarcasm and motherly love.
