Hi, Sorry I haven't been on, but things have been totally crazy around here this week.
Here is more details about what is going on with Mom:
Mom had her five breast cancer check this past Tuesday. When she had her mammogram they found a spot that wasn't there last year. Then during her appointment and exam her doctor felt another spot that she didn't feel last year. Mom had an ultra sound that afternoon, and the doctor was hoping to get a definitive answer. Unfortunately, the radiologist couldn't give a definite answer from the ultra sound, either. Tomorrow, Monday, morning Mom is going in for a biopsy on both spots in Plymouth. Then in the afternoon she has preop for her knee replacement surgery in Taunton. Depending on the outcome of the biopsy Mom's knee replacement surgery on June 4th maybe in jeopardy. Thursday morning Mom has an appointment with the surgeon who is doing her knee replacement to make all the final arrangements for the surgery. Unfortunately, Mom won't get the results of the biopsy until Thursday afternoon. Both her breast cancer doctor and the radiogist said it is extremely likely that the two spots are just scar tissue as they are very close to the scar. We are hoping that is all that it is, but Mom is still worried and concerned about both the results of the biopsy and not knowing whether her knee replacement surgery will go on as scheduled until her appointment Thursday afternoon when she gets the results.
Thank you all for the thoughts, prayers, and kind words. All I know for sure is this is going to be one extremely long week with doctor appointments everyday through Thursday.
