Post Surgery Pathology

The pathology results are finally in. Whew. The good news: my lymph nodes tested negative. Yay! Woohoo! The cancer has not spread out of the breast area. No CHEMO!!! I can finally make an appointment to get my hair cut and colored. The Cruella De Vil grey stripe can finally go away. I refused to go spend $$ on my hair if I had the possibility of losing it.

The Eh news: the mass which was removed does not show any cancer (it could have all been removed during the biopsy) but it also does not show the typical results of a mass which had been biopsied. The net net is that my surgeon wants me to go in for an MRI to check out the area again and see if there is cancer left behind.

So my journey continues. The waiting is just annoying. The fact that I cannot control this is making me CRAZY. I am feeling pretty good, still achy under my arm and tender, but I can pick up J and carry him on that side and stretch my arm pretty well. I am tired, but honestly I think that is because my wonderful, amazing son likes to get up daily before 7 am and we stay up too late at night. How the hell did I get a morning child? I am going to have to teach him about the wonders of sleeping in. I am also bored, I miss my daily routine of exercise classes/swim lessons, etc. I know I will get some structure back, I just hope it will be sooner rather than later!
