Getting caught up!! 03/13/12

Wow, it has been too long since my last post. Not sure if anyone has been looking on the website lately, but I have not been good at keeping up on the information. I have had oncology follow up appointments that have all gone very smoothly and tests that show that the treatment has been doing a good job of keeping the cancer away! Always a relief to have good news! I am taking Tamoxifen daily for the next 5 years to help suppress hormones that may "feed" cancer cells. (It does wonders for my memory..ugh). I can live with that!

I am scheduled for reconstructive surgery on April 4th. This is a pretty involved procedure and has me a bit nervous. My surgical oncologist is going to remove the other breast at the same time that the plastic surgeon is doing his work. I have thought about this for quite awhile and would rather be safe than sorry and have a more symmetrical result. I am really hoping that everything goes smoothly. I will be in the hospital for 4 days (which is 3 days longer than I can tolerate, haha).

I finished my Bachelors Degree in November. I was so relieved to have that accomplishment behind me. I wrote soooooo many papers in that time period that I will be glad to never write again!!

I will try to remember to update this website after my surgery. Hope all is well with everyone. We are starting to resume our crazy spring sports schedule, but I am looking forward to it!

Take care everyone!
