Thank you for your kind words, hope and encouragement. My mom is doing well and, in answer to your question Tiger, she had a modified radical mastectomy. She has to undergo 8 treatments every three weeks of chemo. I felt so much better and not so alone after reading your responses. I would very much like to have her participate and read the posts on this site. I will encourage her to do so but let her set the pace. ;-)
Through this site, I discovered chemoangels and signed her up. She was tickled to receive a letter and a token from her "Angel" especially because it directed some of her upcoming fears and expectations of losing her hair. We expect it to happen within the next few days. The doctor says it's about time. I have read some of the posts on this site about hair loss. I just hope I can be there for her to help her through it. In all her denial, it's the one thing (as you all know) that will be "in her face", so to speak, that she has BC. It'll be tough but I know we will get through it.
Thanks again for your responses and I wish you all well. Take care and lots of hugs are being sent your way!
