I am as new to this blogging thing ,as I am to this cancer thing.
But I just added a button that you can be notified of new posts.
I love getting comments and I know that as this goes on they will be very uplifting.
Arla and Tuesday22 thank you for following me and I will be reading your blogs.
Jill I do believe and am going to keep believing. I've had a necklace with this on it for years now :) (((hugs))
I had no idea that Hormone receptors are a good thing...I am glad to hear that.
Show's just how little I know. I was worried it was a bad thing.
I still have not missed a period at 53 1/2.
WHERES THE BIG FROWN SMILIES!?!?!?!?
I thought...well thank you for being such a pain each month. Now you've fed my cancer
So I am glad to hear that its a good thing :)
The surgeon's nurse called me around 4:30 yesterday afternoon and said the date of my surgery for the mastectomies may need to be changed from July 14th. as the plastic surgeon can not be there that day.
I still go for the appointment with the plastic surgeon tomorrow.
I am so confused about all of this.
First thing is I want to live...2nd I am praying I do not get bad sick from chemo.
But I dont have a Oncologist yet ( I still can not pronounce this yet...LOL)
Doesnt he have to tell me if I have to have radiation or not?
My understanding is this plays a big part on if I want the reconstruction after the mastectomies or during?
Maybe he'll tell me more about this tomorrow?
I ask her about pre-surgery testing .
This morning I have to call my internist and ask her for a referral to a cardiologist and a pulmonary specialist, since I have had shortness of breath for months and chest pains now and then that I thought was stress, and so my COPD can be checked out.
Chest x-ray too...Since its been years since I had one.
I also thought they would do any MRI or PET scan to see if it has spread anywhere else.
I'll just be honest with you...I do not think I will go thru ANY of this if its in my lungs and thats what is causing my bad breathing problems for months now...and not the COPD :(
And He is Now At Peace
