On June 1, 2022, Todd tested positive for Covid.
On June 2, 2022, Jamie tested positive for Breast Cancer. They weren’t great gifts for our 26th Wedding Anniversary on June 8. But what a blessing at the end of June to join our friends, Jason and Larry, and celebrate their wedding in Puerto Vallarta. It was a great way to process all of the overwhelming information coming in … and plan for what was yet to come.

Jamie’s mammogram in late May, taken one year and one day after her last one, revealed a “spot”. That spot turned out to be an 8.5 mm tumor that was removed in a lumpectomy on July 6:

Stage 1.
Grade 2.
0 cancer cells in lymph nodes

Genetic testing of the cancer itself indicated a 32% probability it would return within 10 years MEDICATIONS only.

RADIATION, in addition, would reduce that number to 21%.

CHEMOTHERAPY, in addition, would get that number under 10% … where we want it.

12 weeks of Chemo treatment, one infusion every 3 weeks, are scheduled for September 1, September 22, October 13, and November 3.

Radiation will begin around Thanksgiving.
