I am so so sorry and so friggin mad too.
This dam disease just WON'T QUIT!
And for you to get this news about two members of your family at the same time? I feel really bad for your family and for YOU because it must be freaking you out at the same time it is making you be concerned and worried for them.
I am praying that they both might listen to you or their doctors and do EVERYTHING in their power to fight this BEAST.
I am really sorry Annette.
Boy- reading this makes me love even more the closing lines you have after each of your posts- truer words have never been spoken. Take back all the pink ribbons- here's "our" month back- just give us a friggin cure already. ENOUGH.
Geez Annette..I am so sorry..this disease just never stops and I am so sick of it. I am hoping and praying that they both do well.
I am glad you came here. ( i love your log-in name).
I remember when I had my lumpectomy one of the things that the BS told me was that he will have to wait to see whether the margins were clear or if there was vascular invasion in order to tell me whether it would stay a lumpectomy. It is a GOOD thing they found that. Now you will be 100% certain it is all removed.
And as always, Lori is right, you can have a reduction on the other side- and it is covered by insurance.
Take it one day at a time. Get through the surgery now and we'll help you deal with the chemo later.
I know it seems very overwhelming but this is all DOABLE and you will get through it!
Plus you have Annette! She's the greatest.
