    lung biopsy

    Other Care

    Was opposite side then the cancer but was a month after reconstructive surgery. I wish we could of spaced them apart more but end of year was going to get us. Stay in hospital was only 3 nights and they found Histoplastmosis. It is a fungus that grows in the Ohio Valley area region and they took all of it out and it is gone so nothing to worry about there. yeah

    Milestones

    Been a long road since dx in Oct 2015. 2016 was 7 surgeries and 8 doses of chemo. Losing hair and having it grow back a different color and thicker. 2017 was getting "ME" back to the new normal. Had all doc follow ups and everything is GOOD!!! YEAH ME! Now I go this coming Tuesday and have my tattoo done on my left breast and I will have conquered this chapter in my life. Yes I am taking my preventive meds and doing follow-ups. It has been an adventure and I can say been there done that. I've had people come to me and ask questions. Breast cancer, chemo, and cancer in general. It's nice to know people feel comfortable enough to come talk to me about it. Now on with life and wait to see what God in store for me now.....
