First week of no chemo in 16 weeks and every day is a little bit better. My sister still has episodes of extreme fatigue and pain, but given her blood count the fatigue is normal.
Surgery is still scheduled for August 4th, it will be performed at a Surgery Center in Tucson. She will go to TMC first to have a dye injected so that the lymph nodes can be visualized and biopsies will be taken to make sure they are free of cancer. The results of the biopsy will determine the need for radiation.
I have been told the next leg of my sisters journey will be more emotional, so your prayers, well wishes and words of comfort would be very appreciated, please feel free to post here or on her Facebook page.
But first the beach!! We will take lots of pictures and post as we say farewell to the boobies.
