Hi, dear ones, Well, here we go again! If it's Advent it must be surgery time! This time, though, it is not benign brain tumors but rather a cancerous tumor in my breast. It is invasive and poorly differentiated. It was found during a routine 3D mammogram about a month ago. So after a wonderful 10 days visiting dear friends who live in the Caribbean I am now ready for what lies ahead. Surgery will be an outpatient lumpectomy on Monday, Nov. 28 done in Williamsburg, VA. About a month later we should begin a year of treatments to include chemo, radiation and target therapies. We will keep you updated on this site. Right now please keep the prayers coming and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a blessed Christmas. My love to all!
