The Answer Is...
Got home from my appointment with my surgeon an hour or so ago. Made several phone calls, talked a lot. News is still sinking in here.
It is breast cancer.
It is an aggressive form, but estrogen/progesterone responsive, and we caught it early because I am anal retentive about getting all of my testing done. So that is the better news about things, I suppose, that we have, in all likelihood pending a lumpectomy and lymph testing, caught this thing early enough that the world will not end as I know it.
And I am going to kick its ass...let there be no doubt on that score. Because I have far too much to live for in this wonderful family of mine. Far. Too. Much. To let there be anything more than a knock down fight with this upstart.
Let me just say that without any hesitation..I choose the glass half full path, thank you.
