I got a couple of calls today. The first was from the genetic testing. I was negative for the changed chromosome that is a precursor for cancer. What does this mean? It means that I got this "just because." I don't have to have my kids tested, their kids tested, my brother and his kids tested, etc. I hadn't told my family yet (other than the girls,) but if it had been positive, I'd have had to call family and beg them to get tested. Thank God I didn't have to make those calls. It also means that I'm not at any more risk to get cancer again than you are. It's nothin' but a thing.
The second call was the surgeons office, telling me that they'd set up an appointment with the plastic surgeon. That will be on April 4. This means that I will NOT be having surgery within the next 2 weeks. After this appointment, they'll tell me when the surgery will happen. In the mean time, I have to get the EKG and PET scan. That gives me at least 2 weeks to keep things going at work.
PHEW! That's enough for tonight. Both girls went to spend the night with friends tonight, so I'll likely forget the dishes and just crash early. Tomorrow? Kevin and I are having a date day. Not a date night. An entire date day. No telling what we'll do, but we're doin' it. Sweet!
