Good news... my oncologist says....drum roll please...
 
"Come back to see me in ONE year. "
 
Yea...
Bad news... staying on the Arimidex but that is not too bad.  Every little bit helps. 
 
Bad news part two... it looks like I might have lymphodemia starting in my arm.  She told me to be more aware of when I am over using my arm.  Of course this morning I woke up to a 40 pound weight on it.  "Geez Jordan, sleep on your Dad's arm."  Again very livable at this point but have to buy a sleeve.
 
Bad news part three...going to have surgery on my shoulder.  I have one of those fatty tumors, have had it forever, but it hurts once in a while due to where it is.  Not a great thing since it is my "bad arm" so going to a doctor to check this out.
 
But really good news.  Biopsi from two weeks ago came back clean.  No sign of uterine cancer but again keeping an eye here.  No clue as to why I had spotting.  I know from that wild sex I had..........not. Tony wishes it could be from that..... ha ha. 
 
Found out something really great about my Tony.  He was worried. And I mean worried.  My "Mr. Tuff Guy" I called him on the phone to tell him ... 'No cancer" and I heard the breath come out and him say Thank God.  We both heard the line... "Nothing to be worried about but lets be sure" bull but all is well here.
 
Finally hitting 60 today.  Geez, I want to get my garden in soon.  Jordan and I have a little green house going in the kitchen right now.

Oh Annette, good news!! Finally getting to the one year come back is nice! I will be there after appt next mo. As for the lymphedema, sorry. I hope it stays mild. Just a tip from my lymph therapist...before and after any surgery have a massage (lymph massage) it can help to stop further problems from the surgery. In fact she even recommends this before a mast etc even if you don't have a problem. Help with fluids, etc.
Wonderful your biopsy came out ok! Geez, the gift that keeps on giving! Everytime I thing I am through, something else comes up.
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Eat lots of cake and ice cream, it really helps! LOL
Celebrating with ya, L&H, Gail

SOunds pretty good, Annette! As thrilled as I am to be almost done with Tamox, I certainly have that twinge of vulnerability and "now what" feeling..... I have my mammo in August then also go on an annual schedule. Pretty cool, eh?

Hooray for the negative uterine biopsy!

What ever happened to that Dearborn interview? We are surely not at 60 today, more like 40, at best.

L&H,
Lori

Annette:

Congrats on all of your good news! Celebrate!!!! Sorry about the shoulder but better to get it taken care of now before it gets worse.

Okay, did you mean in your post that the temp is hitting 60 degrees today or that you are turning 60? If it is the latter, then Happy Birthday. If it is the temp, have a great time getting the garden ready. Remember, wear a glove on that hand!

Hugs

Deb

High fives and thumbs up, Annette. Thrilled about all the good news. Hope you respond to lymphademia treatments and that the shoulder surgery goes without incident. 60 degrees!! I am envious. We are still waiting for a major snow storm here in Minneapolis. But, I know spring is coming. My daffodils have poked their green leaf tips through the ground. I too am anxious for some nice weather. Hugs, Lauri

Good News, Annette.  Glad you're on the once a year schedule.  And hooray for clean biopsy.  I think I heard that sigh of relief clear out here.  Sounds like you are ready for Spring.  It can't come soon enough if you ask me, we're back in the 40's.  Well when you get outside, enjoy that garden with your Jordan.  Hugs, Libby
Friends are God's way of taking really good care of us.

Oh, darn! I thought I had a good excuse to eat some cake and ice cream! LOL Well, I will anyway to celebrate your good news. Just won't make it birthday cake. LOL I'm really happy for you, Annette. BTW, mind sharing any side effects you have on Arimidex? I'm due to switch in May, and was just wondering how "user friendly" it is.

L&H,
Rita

Good news certainly outweighs the bad news. I laughed at the 60. YOu looked great in Louisville. What a chuckle, Jordan would have been born to a really old mama, huh? Watch that lymphedema and don't let it get hold on you. These tough guys who give us a rough time really are worried about us underneath it all. Give old Tony a hug, too. But watch the wild sex, lol.
