    Celebration (Clean Mammogram): I went on Sept. 13th to have my first mammy since the diagnosis and there was no cancer!! My father in law died on this same die so it was a bittersweet day and has been a terrible year but I thank God I am ok.

    Side Effects (Hot flashes): In August my onc. started me on Tamoxifen and I was having severe hot flashes and since I have had a complete hysterectomy he changed me to Arimidex and I still have them but not as often. I have bone pain some nights and it wakes me up. Getting better though.

    Radiation (External radiation ): I got second degree burns under my arm and it took a long time to heal and it was very painful.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): I had my first surgery on Feb. 28th 2012 and then two weeks later had to have another one to remove more margins.

    Decision Point (had to decide whether to have mastectomy or lumpectomy...went with lumpectomy)
