Thanks again everyone for your encouraging thoughts and words. I had a second opinioun on Monday with the City of Hope people. they did a very thourogh examination and I'm scheduled for a MRI on Tuesday. With more biopsies and tests to follow. As soon as it's cleared through my insurance I'll be setting a date for surgery, most likely the second week in January. I will probably have a lupectomy with radiation called Mammosite. I'll have it for five days twice a day as long as it is NOT found in my lymph nodes. I'd just want to keep everyone informed of my progression through my disease.

I am so sorry to hear the news. :-(
Your warm nature and positive outlook will no doubt help you to conquer it!

We will keep you in our prayers.
Warmest wishes to you friend-



You have a great site. While you are waiting Google alkalizing the body - it will be a tremendous help. You have such a wonderful positive attitude!!


Thank you for your encouranging comments. I have a plan of attack from my surgeon but I'm waiting on getting a second opinion from a second doctor. Most likely the surgery will happen after the 25th.

Ellie, I'm so glad you had your mammogram! Although I'm very sorry the results were not good news. You have a great attitude which I understand is half the battle. I know you'll be fine.



OH my goodness. Ellie, I'm at a loss for words. I would never have guessed it. I had been meaning to call you, but one thing leads to another and I get stuck late at work... AGAIN. Please, please, please let me know if you need anything at all. From a cheer me up, to dinner made, to the girls driven to games, whatever. I know you're a string willed woman that can make it through this. Love you!

My dear friend discovered she had breast cancer almost exactly 2 years ago at the age of 44. After surgery and reconstructive surgery, she is doing great! She told me it was difficult learning of the cancer during the holiday season, but she said on the flip side, all the activities helped keep her moving about and getting out of the house.

I'm sending good thoughts your way!!!


Oh heavens!! I am so sorry to hear you news!! May God be w/ you and know you bloggie friends are on your side!!

OH my goodness. I just read this. I am so sorry but you have a great attitude about it. You are strong and you will conquer this bully. Just hit it head on and do whatever it takes. You will do great I can tell.


I am so, so sorry to hear that. Just know you have big prayers for you in Texas... and they won't cease until the cancer is gone. xoxo
