Thanks @Old Dogs. I’m certain that they do.Not certain if my prayers go beyond the ceiling anymore...but trust me with this brother, you, your wife, your family, the surgeon will be the main topic. Had a few scary moment's with my wife few years back but all turn out well.
🙏Our prayers have been answered in one positive way. No, the cancer isn't gone but, its size and location make it an excellent candidate for a lumpectomy. The indications are that it likely took about 5 years to get to this size so it's very slow growing.
They'll go in on the 24th and remove the tumor and an adjacent lymph node, send both to pathology to determine if he got enough margin and if there is any trace of the cancer in the lymph nodes. After that, we're looking at 6 weeks of radiation therapy with no chemo expected. If you have to have breast cancer, this is about the best possible way to have it. The surgeon told Mandy that she should live to be an old lady and that it wouldn't be breast cancer that took her life. Of course, there's always a chance that the stars and planets could line up wrong and thing take a turn for the worse but I'm focusing on the positive.
I feel such a weight lifted off my shoulders. I mean, it's still a journey, but at least it's not through the desert. Praise God!!
Thank you all for your prayers and support.
Continued prayers for y’all.She had the MRI today and they identified another spot. Its 1/3 the size of the first, but it’s location could totally change the plan of care as it’s more into the breast tissue. They’ll be doing a focused ultrasound to determine if it’s an irregularity. Lord what a roller coaster ride this is.
