What's new...

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.  

Genetic testing

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.
