Breathe in.... Breathe out.....  
Yes, I'm working on my meditation and grounding. 
It keeps me focused.
It keeps me calm.
It keeps me from just freakin screaming some days too :)

So, last we talked I was going for a biopsy on the SECOND invader, "Pest". 
Well, Pest has lived up to his name. 

At this point

As of now, I have the clinical diagnosis (before surgery) of:
Triple Negative Multicentric Invasive Ductal Carcinoma
#1 Mass  - 1.8 cm Grade 3 (Nasty) with Lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate (blood vessel involvement & maybe lymph nodes)  and Necrosis
#2 Mass - .8cm  Grade 1 with tubular features (think tentacles)

This, Boob Warriors, means the battle plan has changed.
There will be no surgery tomorrow.
Instead I will be seeing a genetic counselor to begin testing for the BRCA1/BRCA2 genes
(Think Angelina Jolie)

We will be doing at least a right breast Mastectomy. 
I am considering a double, due to family history and the types of tumors I have.
(Nasty aggressive little buggers)

I will be seeing a plastic surgeon on July 3rd to discuss reconstruction options.

To tell you the truth I'm totally dazed and wish the merry go round would stop
I'm getting a bit dizzy.

So many decisions....

MMH is being a total support hero!
He's awesome and I love him to pieces. 
He has mastered the art of "Just being there"
( which is really hard from him since he's really a knight in shining armor and really wants to just kick this cancers ass and make everything OK, cause that's what he does.) 

He has been able to listen while I ramble
laugh with me when I'm feeling stupid 
hold me when I cry
and just totally be there for me. 
I'm so lucky!

My kiddos are also my supper support.

The Baby Birthing Hippy Chick & Family are awesome.
They are constantly on the phone making sure I (and MMH) are doing OK
They are always there for me/us anytime we need to talk 
They are also EXCELLENT comic relief!
I love you, Casey, Beck & Saw!
& Mogwi & Lila & Rufie too!
(and new yellow and black that are at the new house too) 
You guys ROCK! 

The Boy Child & Girlfriendy are super too.
They are always around to make me smile and had out hugs as needed.
The Boy Child is totally my right hand guy and I don't know what I would do without him.
And wait until you see what Girlfriendy made me!!
OMG!! She made me the most lovely afghan! 

I am soooo lucky to have them all!

So I'm heading out tomorrow and begin the quest again
We will adjust
we will listen
we will learn
