An update on my sister

Susan had an MRI last week. The results were about the best we could ever hope for. Note I said about, not the best. Her cancer was caught at a very early stage and has not moved into any other part of her body. She is opting for a mastectomy over a lumpectomy as she does not want to deal with chemo or radiation. She is currently waiting for an appointment with the Plastic Surgeon to go over options for reconstruction.
Guess, I could let her tell you herself. As she posted on Facebook. I can tell you we are thanking and praising God for his mercy. What an awesome God we serve:)

The MRI came back with no spread of the cancer. It is localized in a small area of the right breast. I now have an appointment on Thursday to speak to a pastic surgeon about doing reconstructive surgery immediately following the mastecomy. I have chosen full mastectomy so that I don't have to have any radiation or chemo. They can even use your own body fat for reconstruction. Hmm bye bye spare tire ;-)

Being in a truck is keeping me from coming by as often as I like, but first off, your family has my prayers. Cancer has taken a huge toll on my family in the past, but I know from experience that faith and early detection will beat it.

For the second part of my comment all I can say is WOW on the new page look. I like it.

So glad that the news wasn't any worse. Sending prayers your way.

If she needs some fat donated for her reconstruction...my butt has pleanty, and I'd be thrilled to get rid of some of it:-D
