At least that's what the quiz I just took said I was in a past life and I am going to be in this one.
I found a lump in my left breast at the end of October/beginning of November. I had been back home for a little over a hectic year so far and hadn't found an OB/GYN. In July my husband, our son and I had begun volunteering on the Tall Ship Elissa in Galveston and we needed to have physicals so I arranged them. That morning I was hungry from fasting for the physical, so I decided to distract myself by finding an OB/GYN. As soon as I put in the call, I was squeezed into the schedule and from there, they squeezed my in for a mammogram and ultrasound. Then that doctor squeezed me into the schedule for a biopsy all in the same day. It was December 18 and I got the results the Monday after Christmas. I had actually already read them for myself on Sunday, but I didn't say anything. I wanted to hear it from the doctor because I wasn't sure what I was reading. After a bunch of tests, and consultations we are ready to begin and my surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. My battle has just begun, but I believe I will win and I know from previous experience I won't give up without a fight. So congratulations to those who have preceded me in victory and good luck to those that follow, we will keep fighting and we will win! Eventually, we will all have provided information and knowledge that will defeat this enemy once and for all!
