Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.

I had my surgery last Friday and am doing pretty well. I am starting to get cabin fever, so today the hubby is going to take me to the grocery store. Who knew that I would get so excited to go to the grocery store, I sure didn't.

I had a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy. Surgery went very well, but I must tell you that I was not prepared for the sentinel node biopsy. I did not realized that they had to give you 4 injections around your nipple, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch! They do not give you any anesthetic for this. Hope I never never have to do that again. Honestly it was painful, but the pain was short lived, thank goodness.

GREAT NEWS......lymph node biopsy came back negative, WOOT! Thanking and Praising God for these results. From here I will need 33 radiation treatments and chemo consult to see if I should be taking a chemo pill (Tamoxifen or Arimidex) for five years......yes five years. But that is better than doing IV chemo treatment, which causes hair loss and sickness.

My road is still long, but I can and will do this with my head held high. I am very fortunate that the cancer was found very early. Praise God!

Until we meet again,

Wow. Really, five years? No time off for good behavior?
Hope all goes well!
