The only thing I remember from my post-surgery conversation with the surgeon is me saying "Damn."
They found some cancer in one lymph node and removed the node. I will need chemo. I don't know anything else, won't know until my next appointment on September 10.
This wasn't part of the plan - a "simple" lumpectomy with six weeks of radiation. Kind of inconvenient but doable. I've got to process this twist but can't really process it until I know more. In the meantime, life goes on. I can't change anything, so there's no point in worrying. I'll focus on healing from my surgery and loving the people in my life.
Thank you for all the support and love you've shown me. I feel very blessed.
