To any of you that I didn't write individually hi. My username is McGruff. I dress as McGruff for law enforcement programs for kids. Guess I won't be taking a bite out of crime for awhile but I plan on takeing a bite out of this CANCER bug. I was diagnosed on Aug 22nd with Invasive lobular carcinoma. From the getgo the surgical oncologist (thank goodness she is female) said has to be a mastectomy. No choice here. Could have been in a hurricane stood on my feet easier than getting that news. What to do? Where to go? Read everything on the web, read everything in print. Seen the surgeon, my personal physican (who I'd trust with anything) see the plastic surgeon. May decision, make choices, make plans, who are these people kidding. Your brain has gone to mush and you don't even know what day it is. Can't sleep. All you do is think about the damn bug. What did I do wrong, what didn't I do? Why me? Yes, I've haven't read anyone say why me yet? But enough of this crap. Onward and upward. Someone told me something yesterday "Those who do the best with what they have are with best for who they are", That's all of us. I'm open to any and all conversations anytime. Thanks to the ACS for this site. It just made me able to sleep for the first night in a long time.
