    Thanks for the support - I did good today!

    What do you know, I impressed myself! My needle aspiration of the lymph nodes was fine -- not a big deal. Although they seem pretty sure that at least a few of those buggers are very abnormal and will likely be you know what. They are surprised that my nodes look bad since the cancer was so small and close to the surface. UGH. Let's do this --- get it gone, and get it done! I'm already looking forward to 2014! LOL!

      Congratulations. I used to be deathly afraid of needles. I still cant watch them going in to me or even osomeone else on TV but I no longer wince at the prospect of getting stuck, I just turn my head. The rest of the fight will be tough but you have lots of reasons to keep fighting.Good Luck

      Good for you!! You do have some hurdles ahead of you but if you keep your positive attitude, you will have the strength to move forward and get all of this behind you. When I look back, I cannot believe that I really made that journey -- through the power of prayer, I did it -- and I have to say that I am impressed with that part of me that pushed and endured. Good Luck!

      Two of my lymph nodes were suspicious and removed during surgery but came back negative. I hope yours is the same situation.

      I hear you roarin' already. They thought they saw a suspicious one in me when I had my MRI, but it was not once we did the neede biopsy. Then, I chose the mastecomy since I just had a gut feel that it would be the most prudent was to go. During surgery 2 nodes lit up, only one did have some in it. Both were removed with clear margins and I did the chemo and radiation just to be sure. This was all just last year, and I can't believe it, but I sit here now. just started a new career this week, have been back to my full workout cycle each week, which was pretty intense before all this, and I'm actually a happier person now.. mostly because I'm grateful, proud of the journey I've gone through, and really know who loves me. There are good things to come of this! Blessed journey to you!
