Surgery on Friday

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. 


  1. Sending prayers and good thoughts your way.

  2. Linda I also think your husband should take more control of the kids for you. You are going to need them to mind what they are told, not to complain and be respectful. That is good of him to help you out a lot. You know you have my prayers for you for Friday and for the future also. The whole family is included also.

  3. I can only imagine how scared you must be. I'm praying you're in that 67% that lives a long time, and I'll bet you are. I just have a feeling.

  4. Wishing you all the very best..just take each day one at a time and it's time for a family cannot be stressed at this's that need all your strength to fight!!!

  5. Praying for you - specifically praying that God will place people in your life to help with the things that you can't do... praying that your cancer will be cured, that you will be in that big 67% with the 5 year survival + a whole lot more! Praying that your heart will be at peace, that you will feel loved, cherished, treasured, anointed. Praying that you will have no worries about money, transportation, food for your family. I'm just praying that God reaches down and intervenes in your life in a huge way. *hugs*

  6. 67% is pretty darn good odds. Just know that you will be in the 67% for sure. I have friends who have beaten this, and you will too!!

  7. I also think like Helen said! I want you to knwo that I am praying hard for your healing.
