    Default UPDATE

    Just got home. The news is good. The cancer is very small so I will only need a lumpectomy, done with only a local anesthetic and I will come home the same day. But no chemotherapy will be needed. Since I'm 74 it'll be totally up to me whether or not to have the radiation treatment. My DIL was with us and she is researching the different radiation options and the pros and cons of each. Will make that decision after surgery.

    As so many of you suggested I did go armed with my notebook and question list. And I did ask all my questions, but God Bless my DIL - she took all the notes and had a barrel of questions of her own. She just texted me her notes and OMG it's almost like she taped the whole conversation - LOL. Doesn't heart to have a Cancer Research Scientist in your corner!!!!

    Now it's just a matter of getting a date for the surgery.

    I can't thank everyone enough for all the wonderful support you have given me. I have read and re-read all your posts and it has brought me great comfort.

    Oh Carol, praise the Lord. I’m soooo thankful as I’m sure you are too! Nope, doesn’t hurt to have a helper along. Keep us posted!

    That's good to hear. My sister-in-law had the lumpectomy and chose a course of radiation.
    Your DIL sounds like an awesome person. Not a lot of people would do what she is doing.

    I was afraid to open this post in case the news was not good. I am so happy for you! This sounds like an early detection totally manageable diagnosis. Thinking positive thoughts all the way. Thank you for keeping us up to date.
