The C word

Remember how my mom died of cancer?  Yeah, that sucked. 

Remember how last week I was diagnosed with breast cancer?  Yeah, that sucked too. 

But yesterday that crap came out.  The whole big lumpy mess will be gone, and it looks like that will be that.  Let's all keep our fingers crossed, okay? 

I've been told by two doctors now that if you're going to get breast cancer, this is the kind to get the and the time to get it.  It's super early, non-infiltrating, stage 0-1, ductal carcinoma.  It's so early it's almost non-cancer cancer.  But I want it out of me so I don't have to deal with it anymore.  So out it's coming. 

Funny how it feels good when things come out, huh?  I'm looking forward to having this weight off my mind so I can focus on doing the things I need to do to be a better person.  Whatever that means. 

But keep those fingers crossed just in case.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. This has been quite the year for you hasn't it? I'm sorry my friend, better days are ahead! My MIL was diagnosed and treated for what sounds like the exact same type of breast cancer and she is feeling fantastic. I hope the same for you.
