Thank you all for the prayers. I'm having a really hard time right now, so please, keep them coming.
A couple of days ago, a second lump was discovered. Needless to say, it's changed things a little bit. Instead of scheduling a surgery date yesterday, my appointment ended up being talks of chemotherapy, genetic testing, and a changes to the plan of treatment.
Two words that I can't seem to get out of my head.
In the course of all of this, it never occurred to me that I could be carrying a mutated gene that my girls could be carrying as well.
As a mother, that's a horrible thing to think about.
I have an appointment with Dr. Flannagan this afternoon, and one with Dr. Mandal in a few days.
