**********11/7/14, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I will undergo a double mastectomy with reconstruction on 12/15/14.
So thankful it was caught early, and I will be around to see my twins grow up.
On 3-9-15, I had my exchange surgery to swap out my expanders for permanent implants.
On 9-15-2015 I had surgery for fat graphing and nipple reconstruction.
11-2015 results from genetic testing came back. It was negative, meaning my cancer was not hereditary. No more surgeries needed.
I'm signing up for Compassionate Care this very minute. :D I'm SO stinking excited. Brian has to go to B'ham for more specific blood work and then we schedule his biopsy. I've gotta call and make the appointment in B'ham for his blood work. I have to get my HSG scheduled. wow!!! :D Thank you so much for asking.
