so we begin...

September 9

got my pathology report at exactly 3:00 as we were standing in our closing circle. It's better than it could be but worse than I was secretly hoping for...

It has a name: "infiltrating lobular carcinoma" with a special added bonus of "lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS)" which appears to mean that I have a 20% chance of getting breast cancer again after a lumpectomy. Hence some women's decision to have a double mastectomy.

The words "double mastectomy" are not good words to hear from your radiologist. For that matter, even having a radiologist is pretty creepy...

am sure kids are wondering why I got such a nice long hug from Chad there in the parking lot... particularly the new kids who haven't figured out we're married!

have decided that life is short so just mentally upgraded the cottage kitchen cabinets to custom. poor Chad! (less shallow people in this position would decide that material things are irrelevant, but now I think bright blue cabinets are essential!)
