Scott is continuing to heal from his surgery and we feel relieved to have his challenging post-surgery days behind us. Unfortunately, we are facing yet another challenge---Amy has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  We have set up this Caringbridge site to keep friends and family updated on Amy's health status. On October 2nd Amy's annual mammogram discovered breast cancer. She followed up with more scans and a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. Amy has been busy with doctors appointments. Prior to surgery, the pathology and clinical diagnosis shows that she has Stage 2B cancer that is ER positive and at this time the MRI does not show abnormal lymph nodes.  She will have surgery on November 14th for the removal and then follow up surgery on the 20th for the beginning of reconstruction. After surgery we will find out if chemotherapy and/or radiation will be needed based on discovery of cancer cells in the lymph nodes and extensive testing of the entire tumor (s) once removed.  Thank you for your prayers, Amy and Scott
