December 27, 1999 - The Beginning of the Journey

A "mass" was discovered in my left breast.

Dear Ones,

I've been on quite a "ride" since December 13th - I had my annual mammogram then and a "mass" was discovered in my left breast. Saw my MD the next day and was scheduled for a biopsy the next Tuesday. The following paragraphs are from some email some of you have already received - forgive me for the repetition, but I wanted to get everyone on board. I didn't leave you out on purpose, just didn't want you to worry. I've been chastised for that from a couple of you, so here are the details and my "mea culpa." I've already learned that no one is alone as they walk these paths!

As you may know, my surgery was postponed until Tuesday, January 4th. I go into the Medical Center at 9:30 AM for blood work and "stuff" and then have the surgery at 1:30 PM. You can be sure I'll have a good book with me! :-) They estimate that the surgery will take about an hour and then about another hour in recovery. If all goes well, that should put us home by about 4:30 PM. Mom and Roy will both be here with me. I won't know the results for another couple of days after the surgery, but after doing quite a bit of research on the possibilities, I'm REALLY praying for it to be benign!
