Happy dancing here....come join me!!!

About an hour ago my Ocologist, Dr. Serious called.........the results came back on what type of breast cancer I have.......I have ER/PR fed tumors. They feed off of my hormones Estrogen and progesterone, I will be on hormone blocking medication and this type of cancer will be cut off from its source of 'food' and they will die off before they can get a change to multiply!........piece of cake I tell ya!


Want to know more about the different types of breast cancer click here ~~~>


Breast Cancer Types: Ductal & Lobular Carcinoma and More


I will still loose my breast, still need chemo...but it's so easy to manage because my body will stop feeding them. This is how Dr. Serious described it to me.......think of a cancer cell has having tiny little key holes...the Estrogen and Progesterone enter through these key holes and feed the cancer cells which morph into tumors. The Hormone blocking meds that I will be given will block all these key holes and the cells will die off before they can get a chance to multiply (tumor) and attack me again! Amazing isn't it!!!!


Dr. Serious also had access to the cat scan and the bone scan that I had done earlier this morning......no report in yet from the Radiologist but Dr. Serious's opinion said from what he could see that it HASN'T spread to any other part of my body..........HAPPY DANCE EVERYBODY! I Still have to wait for the radiologists report to confirm this, but hey, if the Oncologist couldn't see any evidence that it spread outside of my breast then I'm satisfied with that! Now with the lymphnodes we won't know until they do the Mastectomy and send my dearly departed left boob off to Pathology along with a few nodes...It's a brand new day for me!!!!


You, the people whose minds I crossed, who sent prayers, who sent guardian angels, who sent good vibes and karma.......it is YOU who amaze me! I am someone who you will most likely never meet, but have touched me with your hearts and have blessed an already blessed life and I could never express how much you lifted me!


So Cancer........hear this.....................................................


" I FART IN YOUR GENERAL DIRECTION!!!" ......OOPS MY BAD!! But I'm a huge Monty Python fan and if you are too then you are LOL as you read this!


Life is good and I am thankful!!!!!

I am so happy for you.  I started reading your journal this week, and I have been sending prayers to you.  I know how happy and relieved you must be.  My aunt had her breast removed last Wednesday due to cancer, and her cancer hadn't spread either.  So I'm doing a double happy dance for both of you.  I hope you have a peaceful and relaxing weekend.

Hugs,
Pat

That is wonderful news, Kim!  I guess the next question is, will you have to be on the "hormones-be-gone" meds for life or will you eventually have to have a hysterectomy?

Do you have any personal plans for the day before surgery?  Like a special outing with family?  Goodbye Bad Boobie party?  

Keep the faith, my friend!

Love and hugs,
Sheila
