Dear Donna,

You have been on my mind for days. You are a Special lady. I'm joining the group with the B9, B9, B9, B9 chant.

I guess you can tell from the posts that "we love you."

God Bless,

Dear Donna,
 
I see your biopsy is today & am praying for your healthy result! 
 
3 John 2  Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
 
It does seem likely to me a node could get inflamed from a sinus infection or a flu shot.  But, I'm not a Dr., but when we have colds, a lymph gland can become enlarged in the neck.  Anyway, praying for a CANCER-FREE biopsy!
 
God  Bless,
Lorene

I love you all!  I could feel your prayers and B9 chants today.  It helped support and lift me up during the procedure.

The procedure went smoothly.  I was worried how this doc could get into the area under my implant.  Once we got to the hospital, the nurse said the interventional radiologist was wonderful and I was lucky to have him today.  I explained he was the only one my onc wanted to do the procedure.  She replied, I know why.  It made me feel that I was in good hands with a skilled surgeon.

So I'll explain the procedure in laymen's term.  Like I said, I was very curious how they could do this biopsy.  They took me into the surgery room and put me on the CT scan table.  They gave me fentanyl that helped relax and make me sleepy.  I was awake during the procedure.  I think they gave me a shot in the center of the chest to numb it, but I can't be sure because I never looked.  They had me laying more on my side with my right arm above my head.   While doing the procedure he had the CT scan to show him exactly where the needle was going.  He used a thin needle and inserted it in the center of my chest and went sideways under the implant into the mammary node.  He did this 5 or 6 times poking around and aspirating the node.  Once the procedure was done, they took me back to the room where I ate lunch and waited about 2 hours before going home.  I was still feeling the effects of the sedative and slept much of the afternoon away.  I feel more alert now, but still a little tired.  The center area of my chest hurts a little, like someone was poking around with a needle, lol!  They told me to take it easy today and the next 2 days.  I can return to work tomorrow.

I love your B9 chants and prayers.  I'm praying for the same results.   I have to wait until late in the day on Thursday to get the results.  My onc is squeezing me in as the last appointment of the day.  Until then, I'm thinking B9, B9, B9!

Hugs,

Donna
