Six Word Saturday

Cancer can go kick fucking rocks!

Gramma got her diagnosis from her biopsy last week.
It's breast cancer.
Ductal carcinoma in situ to be exact.
The next stage is to have a lumpectomy of the rather large lump as well as a few lymph nodes to check to see if it has spread. 
The good news about this form of breast cancer is that it is Stage 0 and is usually just the lump that is found. 
Once the lumpectomy has been done, radiation will begin. 
We have an appointment with her lung specialist to see if she can undergo the surgery. With her lung cancer, the risk of anesthesia can cause more problems.
Monday, Gramma will have an appointment with the breast surgeon.
Now it's just a waiting game. 

Lord, please give my family a break.

I'm sorry. I hope "stage 0" means they can get in and take care of it quickly. And I hope her recovery from the lumpectomy goes smoothly as well. I had a lumpectomy a few years back - it wasn't an awful experience but it also wasn't fun (mine was benign).

Thanks for joining 6WS - be sure to keep us updated.
