Patrick’s mom had surgery last Wednesday and it was very successful – no mastectomy! They removed the tumor and one lymph node, although they do not think the cancer spread. She is healing well, but is very tired. She is scheduled to have radiation for 6 weeks and there is still the possibility of starting chemotherapy. That’s where the confusion is – we were told 6 weeks of radiation, but heard nothing about chemo. Apparently the doctor’s office called her last week and set up an appointment for her to meet with the “chemo doctor.” Still need some clarification on that.

The panic that I referred to in my last post is getting better. If I think too much about it, I start myself on that downward spiral. Day by day, I tell myself. Day by day…
