Thinking I could have any semblence of control over any of this.
We met with 2 sets of breast docs and oncologists, sorta as teams. Today was the final consult with the oncologist we're going with. Glad that's all finished. He, however, changed the sequence of events BACK to what it was last week before we met the new breast surgeon on Tues who changed it. And I'm over it. Thing is I don't really care what sequence any of this happens in, don't really want any of it, but getting used to one idea of doing say chemo 1st, then surgery to have that changed up and then changed up again, ugh, it's a roller coaster. I'd like off now please. I guess that's going to happen as long as I don't have any 3rd or 4th opinions, which is not in the plans. We feel confident we are in the best place for our care for this disease.
So, the new plan.
-Port placement Tues afternoon
-chemo starts Tues 8/23 for 4ish months
-surgery will be early in 2017
-radiation will follow
still don't know what we are doing for surgery or re-construction yet, and, thankfully, that decision doesn't have to be made yet. unless that changes too... (sorry, BIG pity party here, forgive and pray if you feel so led)
Have a full day of appts Monday but I'm told that this part is on the downhill side too, which I have to say is pretty nice to think about too, will make schooling and life a bit simpler. Thankful.
Kids are having some ups and downs too this week, but are muddling thru. If you see them and feel the Lord leading, extra hugs would be appreciated. We had a teary night last night, but prayerfully good healing is happening in that too.
Thankful we don't live the in the stix where we'd have to travel hours for our treatment. Thankful for medical professionals, researchers and all the support staff. Thankful for an amazing, engaged-in-this-battle husband. Thankful for my beautiful, healthy, bickery children. Thankful for amazing friends/family who are so sweetly stepping into our mess with a happy heart. Thankful. (and a little grumpy, c'mon have to be honest here, right?!) But really, truly, mostly thankful. Thank YOU for taking the time to read/care/pray/be there.
your steadfast love comfort me according to your promise to your
