    Oh No

    Went in for routine mammogram & ultrasound. Suspicious calcifications in left breast. Needle Biopsy confirms Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Received news over the phone the next day, as I was preparing dinner. I remember I kept on making dinner as usual, my husband was due home soon I think I was in a state of shock, & numb from hearing the news that I was on autopilot. The next few days all I did was cry, & ask myself how could this have happened?
