Speed bump

You never want to hear the words you have cancer. So you never want to hear them a third time either, especially when you thought you had beat the s.o.b.

Mom has cancer again. The results of the biopsy are positive for carcinoma. She is now scheduled for Surgery May 25, 2010.

I had an appointment with the chiropractor this evening for their "doctor's meeting". I'd rather call it propaganda propogation time. Some of it the stuff he said was way out there, some of the stuff said was insulting to be quite honest, I'm glad my filter is set to high.... I guess that means I have high logic? I want to be free from back pain and I can agree with SOME aspects mentioned I highly disagree with other things said. There is concrete evidence in medical science, and I'm not about to become a herb nut who turns a blind eye on something that guarantees results for something that may help. I'll say this much. If the chiropractor that was giving the "discussion" this evening had been the one I met at the trade show I probably would have left and NEVER gone back.

Vanessa was there and I told her the news about Mom.
Then I went to Blackfalds and broke the news to Mike.

Lots of tears today.

I drove Mom up to have an OPD visit to Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton today. Dr. Dabbs performed a biopsy on lump located left of her sternum and three other needle aspiration sites on her left side.

As a just in case, Mom was booked immediately for surgery on May 25, 2010.

Trouble just below the surface

Went for a routine exam at the Breast Centre in Edmonton with Dr. Krause.
An abnormal lump was discovered medially along the left of the sternum. Suspect just hardened tissue from reconstruction, but to be on the safe side will perform biopsy schedule April 16, 2010. Ultrasound results negative.
