After a routine mammogram in late Dec, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 T2 N0 M0 highly aggressive Triple Negative BC. From Jan til June 5 I was on chemo. On Thurs.June 28 I had a lumpectomy and the initial path report looked good. Last Sunday (!!!) my surgeon called to tell me he had checked the computer for my final path report and it was all good--clean margins and the 3 lymph nodes he took were all clean. Yay!! As soon as I'm healed, I'll have 6 weeks of 5 days a week radiation. Any tips on this from those of you who've been there, greatly appreciated!
Between the end of chemo and surgery, we were able to visit our son, DIL, and their 5 girls. And meet the twins who were born March 2!! All are doing great including Ellie, the twin who had to have open heart surgery when she was 1 month old.
My husband Larry was diagnosed mid-June of 2011 with Stage IV EC T3/N2/M1. Since mid-March, he and I had been going every Tuesday for Taxol infusions. He had a CT the first part of June with very good news:
So, after our year of multiple "whip lash" moments, we're feeling pretty darn grateful and happy. And we have sure learned not to sweat the small stuff!
