Almost Out Of The Woods - Cancer Update

The past four months of chemotherapy has been difficult for me. However, I have made it out of harms way, thus far. It started out as a Stage 2/3 diagnosis of cancer in one breast, and a subsequent discovery of something of interest in the other breast, with a prognosis of worst case scenario of a double mastectomy. The tumor has shrunk such that all outward presentations (i.e., dimpled breast, inverted nipple and a lump) disappeared! The activity in the other breast is a ten year period from doing any harm. So, I will have basically outpatient surgery at Cedars, by Dr. Kristie Funk, early December, to go into the breasts under the nipple, take out the two small masses and remove a couple of lymph nodes, no drastic reconstruction required, fast recovery anticipated. I cannot be any more ecstatic. 

I hope to get back to blogging at the start of the new year.
