We are headed to MD Anderson on Monday!!!
I can't believe I just typed that Blog Post Title! It is true--exactly a week following my diagnosis, we will be headed to MD Anderson to meet with an awesome Breast Oncologist! One of our great friend's half-sisters is actually a Director at MD Anderson and, thus, was able to move my appointment from October 2 to either this afternoon or Monday, September 24!! And better yet--it is with one of her favorite breast Oncologists. I couldn't ask for better timing. When we visit her at noon on Monday, we will have had an ultrasound and mammogram on both breasts, left breast core biopsy and lymph node biopsy and pathology reports, BRAC Analysis (genetic testing), PET/CT, meeting with a Breast surgeon, as well as a meeting with a local Oncologist. Whew! I can't believe we will have accomplished all of this in one week since diagnosis. Thank you Lord for helping all of this move so swiftly!!! And, thank you to all of our friends who have helped us get all of these appointments so quickly! I have heard that getting into MD Anderson with an appointment this soon is just unheard of, so thank you to all of you who helped make this possible.
