GOOD NEWS, my second biopsy showed ductal carcinoma in situ.... Stage 0 breast cancer:) cells that have not spread outside the ducts... Thank you Jesus!!! Next appointment is tomorrow with the surgeon.. next Tuesday is my MRI... keep praying
Today I saw the surgeon, after the MRI next Tuesday, I will see the oncologist. The plan looks like getting a chest portal put in and the start of Chemotherapy within the next couple of weeks.. surgery will take place in a few months after chemo treatments.. I'm am still very scared... Doctor asked that we tell the kids and to be completely honest and share the experience with them, but for them to understand that everything I'll go through is to kill the cancer..I love you all and all the support I have and will receive..
One more step closer to all my results, can't say I enjoyed the MRI today, but it's over. I'll get my results at my appointment on Thursday with the Oncologist. I'm scared and praying that this cancer has not spread. Will be cutting my hair to prepare for chemo, there will be tears when that happens.. we have told the boys now, at first we all cried together, they asked questions, we got through it. I held myself together better then I thought I could, I just want them to see me strong, don't want them too scared. We are reaching out to Gilda's club to have more support. Again, I love you all and will update again on Thursday.
Git a call from the doctor today, the MRI showed a concern spot, asked me to come in again today. Had another biopsy, now in my right breast.. doesn't look good for this spot either.. hopefully we have caught this one early too:) will keep everyone posted after my appointment tomorrow.
**Thank you to those of you who have donated on the GoFundMe page, I was able to purchase 4 hats to get me started after I cut my hair. Love you all!
More good news today.. the biopsy from my right breast came back benign.. yea!! I will be getting my portal put in on Wednesday morning, chemo starts Thursday.. I will be cutting my hair this weekend and will be donating it to Pantene pro v free wig program. I'll have chemo for 18 weeks, every 3 weeks and then surgery.
People keep asking how they can help.. please go to GoFundMe, I'll be missing alot of work before I even have surgery.. I have great friends whom will be making food.
I'll keep everyone posted, please continue to pray for me and my family, we will have a long 6-8 months ahead of us.. love to you all!!
