Carol. I'm so sorry!  I know that you're a very strong woman, and you will get through this.  Know that the fact that it was caught early is in your favour.  Pags and Daylin were right.  


Visualize the life you want, happy, healthy, filled with loving friends and family.  You have to see it in you head every day.  It will follow.  You will see.  Visualize what you want EVERYDAY and it will come.

I realized I should have opened a new thread for this news so everyone would know beathorse.gif  but i knew you all would come through for Carol and I appreciate all that you all have done for her  wub.gif ....

It brings tears to my eyes to know that the support she needs is here for her.... I will update when she can not and let you all know how she is recuperating after her surgery  wink.gif

SHE WILL BEAT THIS and we will be there for through all the steps and my prayers are with her rose.gif

That's the spirit Carol.

Sorry I haven't been in recently, but I've been away for a week, and neither my parents nor my in-laws have computers, never mind internet connections!!!!.

You're in my thoughts and prayers, but I think you've already grasped the most important thing. This is an invader and getting it out is the priority. Whatever secondary impact the surgery has on our bodies, and however hard it is to come to terms with it, getting read of those cancer cells is vital.

In hope the surgery goes well, and the histology is positive.

I was an awful teenager.    sad.gif   I was about 13 when my mom had to deal with (what I realize NOW was) a very difficult decision.  After having had one lump removed, the breast cancer had returned.  While it was up to her whether to have a masectomy or not, I couldn't understand her hesitation.  "Lose it, Mom!"  (I die a thousand deaths every time I think about it.  What an ass, I was.)  My mom was shocked at my attitude.  I'm not sure I ever shared my fears with her.  I remember wondering how in the world she would care about breasts when her very life was in danger, and I was pissed that it was even a question in her mind.

She told me a few days later that she had decided to have the masectomy but gave me the raised eyebrow for having been so brassy about it.   doh.gif  She said I was right, that it wasn't worth the risk of not having it since this was Round 2.  Besides, it was just a boob anyway.  She said if she had to choose a body part to lose, a breast would be it.  She would not rather lose a hand, or a leg, (or an eye, Madra  sad.gif  rose.gif ) or a lung or even a butt-cheek (since she sits on that.)  But a boob?  confused13.gif   She had already breast-fed nine (9) kids and was still happily married.  (She and Daddy had a running joke that whoever filed for divorce had to take the children.   laugh.gif  )

The masectomy cured her for good.  She will be 73 this year  wub.gif  still happily married.  wink.gif
