Until now I have focused primarily on my miracle journey. It has been a journal more than anything: things I'd never say out loud. Now I'm going to try to develop this blog into a breast cancer research oriented commentary. I plan to use my background to take current research and news in cancer treatment and turn it into something understandable. Please be patient, I will try to not get too nerdy! Thank you for visiting!

2 days to go!!!
I get to have my exchange surgery in 2 days!!! I'm so excited. However, my excitement has been tempered somewhat by the odd (to me) demand from my surgeon & the surgery center for me to pay up-front my out-of-pocket/insurance deductible. I've never had to do this before. I know I'm going to have to pay it eventually, but it just seems more reasonable to request it AFTER I receive the service & not in one lump sum. I have an emotional issue with thinking that I'm being treated as a frivolous cosmetic patient instead of a medical necessity (as declared by the AMA) cancer patient.
I just noticed that the addition of a "s" to my first sentence in a key location, could change the WHOLE meaning of what I'm excited about... :-D
Above is me this time last year - before my mastectomy.
