Well, today my friend and co-worker got the news, she needs a full mastecomy. Won't hear until Friday or Monday on when surgery can be scheduled. It has been rough for her--her sister had a double mastecomy about 5 years ago and is a survivor and great support. Unfortunately, my friend experienced a terrible biopsy, and was bruised completely on her left side. Her son and daughter have been, are, and will be by her side through the whole thing. She may have to be off for 6 weeks, and has no vacation or sick time built up to cover. She does have insurance--Thank God--but will not be off long enough for disability to kick in. What a headache.
Miki (that's her name) is taking today off (and the Thanksgiving weekend) to think about what is coming up for her and her choices. Just to wrap her head around what the doctor has told her so far.
Please say a prayer for this new sister to Breast Cancer, and to all who have been and are being diagnosed today.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving wherever you are in the world!!
