"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God -" Ephesians 2:8 was the Scripture at the sign-in desk at the cancer center. Extra special, very caring people work there. What a blessing they are!
Dr. White had nothing but good news. He went over in a little more detail the same pathology results his nurse shared with me last Friday. The cancer was only 3mm (which is tiny!) and was not invasive (hasn't spread!) He said he had to take out 3.8 cm of tissue though to remove both clips (from my 2 biopsies) and the scar tissue from my 1st biopsy. Oh yeah, and the cancer. No wonder I'm sore!!!
|Check out the pink breast cancer Christmas tree in Dr. White's office! Barbie is the tree topper, and she has been through surgery (she's all bandaged up) & chemo (she's lost her hair). It's a sweet tree.|
|And look at these smiling faces! They work at the parking garage. This was the first time I've seen the young lady. The young man is always singing and serenades me every time I come through.|
I will see Dr. White again in 3 months for follow-up and to get started on tamoxifen (the oral medication that reduces reoccurrence.)
My radiation consult has been scheduled for bright and early tomorrow morning. These people do not mess around! I know my incision has to heal before I can start radiation treatments. So, I am assuming it will be a few weeks before I actually start. I'll let you know after tomorrow.
