Reaching for the top of the hill

The results of my bone biopsy are in. NO MALIGNANCY! This means the biopsy they took showed no signs of cancer. While my doctor wasn't sure what exactly is showing up on my scans & said they would continue to watch it, he was pleased with the results & treatment would continue as planned with surgery & radiation to the breast & underarm area only. I'm very thankful for that & know all the prayers being sent my way had something to do with it.

Surgery. That's coming on Monday y'all. 3 days! I'm nervous & scared & excited all at once. I'm excited to have this cancer out of me! I'm scared to have the pain & drains I know that come with it. And a little nervous to see what I'm gonna look like after. I've felt like I'm nesting here at home. I've been decorating for Christmas & wrapping what gifts we've gotten & cleaning & trying to fit in all the time I can with my husband & the kids. The kids know I'm having surgery but I don't know that there is really a way to prepare them for what's to come & how useless I'm gonna be for a week or two. My mom is coming to stay for as long as I need,  so I know that between her, my husband, & kids I will be well taken care of.

This may be my last update before surgery. I had all my pre-op appointments yesterday & I'm packing my bag for the hospital today before working tonight & tomorrow night. I plan on enjoying a night at The Christmas Train with my family on Sunday night before we go in on Monday morning. Thank You again for all the support so far. I feel like I'm reaching the top of this hill with surgery & then I can start sliding down.
