It was a good consultation. The surgeon was very reassuring. DD went with me. She had 2 pages of written questions to ask! Surgeon answered all her questions, and, afterwards, turned to me and said, "She's good!" :D
The surgery will be done on an out-patient basis (no hospital stay). He will do what is known as an "open biopsy" which will consist of the removal of the tumor and surrounding tissue and several lymph nodes for testing to see if the cancer has spread. Results will be sent to the oncologist and treatment, including any additional surgery, will depend on results and what the oncologist has to say, but most probably will be chemo followed by radiation.
Afterwards, daughter and I went to one of our favorite Japanese restaurants to have an early lunch. We stopped by one of our favorite bakeries for their raisin buns and had to wait for them to be taken out of the oven! Nothing as good as freshly baked raisin buns, still warm from the oven! Then, came home and we both took a long nap!
I did a load of laundry, later in the evening, and need to wash the dinner dishes.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A good consultation with the surgeon
- Daughter being there to ask the questions
- Lunch out with daughter
- Freshly baked raisin buns from the bakery
- All the phone calls from friends and family
How was your day, today? Did you do something fun and special?
