I saw my surgeon today and surgery is scheduled for this Friday early AM. I want to go and get it done. I will need chemo and radiation. The tumor size has been upgraded to a Stage 3 plus 1. 5 year survival rate is 67%. My life is so chaotic now and this is really going to push me to the limit I think. I really need my husband to step up and help more with the kids. He cooks and cleans but I will need him to take care of the kids and animals for a while. Here is a picture of the tumor. It is the large white blob on the breast image on the right even though the tumor is actually on the left. It is a reverse image. Below it you can see a smaller circular blob and that is the sentinal node that has the cancer in it also.
