Net,
 
Just told Donna that I would have had to set the doctor's office on fire...they would have taken them off then!! AngryNo way in h*** would I have gone through what you have gone through.
 
Now...as mainy says...the keyboard is a great weapon...and we all have a keyboard, and unless they want to be bombarded with emails, they had better do right by you this time...the 24th right?
 
Of course, going to the office sounds so much better. I am the Gray Panther....and you are all my little cubs. See if they don't move quickly then. Wink
Hugs,
Nancy

Bless your heart.  Red%20Heart
 
Mastectomies are not easy surgeries, but I'll bet you're going to feel so much relief that recovery will be a pleasure !
 
I'm sooooo glad you have an onc you can trust now and others who are diligent in solving your issues.

Thank you so much Mary, I really appreiciate it. After all this time, and hard work and researching things that are way over my head, my Onc has really had to dig in and get an answer. She is really amazing. Hug

Awwww Hug no need for tears hun, I am just glad we have finally come to a dx, and getting in to see the specialist this coming Tuesday, the 24th. From what she told me, and what I have read about it, if this is indeed what it is, it is easily treatable.
Chemo in pill form, chemo creams, and I already had the life time amount of rad to the area affected. So hopefully this will be a breeze. I just asked Nancy last night if she had heard from you, since your last speed bump, and if you were doing any better, so I am really glad you posted, because I was worried about you. But enough about me, how are you doing?

Thank you sweetie, after I get home, I am pretty sure my brain will be fried trying to wrap my head around this new dx, I have been reading up on it, and have been compiling a list of questions I have.
 
And hopefully all this crappy snow we are getting dumped on us right now, we are under winter storm warning, dumping 2 inches every hour.. will GO AWAY.....I am sooo tired of winter, I want to see green grass, breezy days, flowers budding, and trees coming back to life, after a long winters sleep. It was 60 degrees here last week, I was wearing shorts! UGH!!!

I know what you mean about the snow -- we're in Kalamazoo!  On the way home from work today, I watched a semi jack knife and hit the embankment blocking 2 of the 3 highway lanes.  Then less than a mile up, an SUV did the same thing -- hit the embankment wall!

Ahhhhh....then you definately got this mess too then. I swear that even if it has stopped snowing for one minute.. people forget anything and everything about driving in a snow storm. Confused  people in 4x4's and SUV's are usually the first to go flying into the ditch, over confidence in the traction control, like they can just go on auto-pilot, and yap on the phone.
 
Next curve ahead, **POOF**a snow cloud, and then when it clears up, he is upside down. I lived up near Grayling/Gaylord area, right smack in the middle of one of the WORST places, for lake effect snow storms, and even the rare but awesome  snow thunder strorms. Is quite the display if you can catch one while out riding snowmobiles.

Netterz:

No kidding about the driving!  It's the same here in Kalamazoo!  Saturday, on my way home from work, I watched a semi jack knife and hit the embankment on I-94 by Exit 74, Oakland.  Then by the Westnedge exit, Exit 76A, there was an SUV in the embankment.  I could see his air bags were deployed.  It was nasty.  I did see the guy in the SUV out of the thing and walking around and there was an officer on scene already at that one.

I`m just catching up on your latest news...Sad & Angry that you have to go through more tx but RELIEVED THAT IT IS TREATABLE.  I will be thinking about you tomorrow and I hope your appointment gives you peace of mind and you get all your questions answered.
BTW, I`m sorry for the loss of your daughter`s dog. We are lucky to be able to do the right thing for them but it doesn`t make it any less heartbreaking. Broken%20Heart

Good luck with the treatment on Tuesday, Netter. It's a relief isn't it, knowing what and how they have to treat, compared to the months of figuring out what was happening.
Drive careful in all that snow. Anyway, how does if feel to drive in snow? Wouldn't know since, if it goes doen into the 50's here, we bundle up and more often than not, stay home - too cold!
