It's not okay, but it's going to be okay.

The news is that I will need surgery to have it removed. I want that to happen as soon as possible. From what the doctor who did the biopsy said it is less than a centimeter in diameter - maybe it will be easy to remove. No vacation to Florida next month - I'm going to be seeing the surgeon and oncologist instead. I feel like I am in shock. But I do find comfort in my mantra. Facing something, doing something about it - feels better than wondering and waiting. I like having a game plan.

In my experience, waiting for news is always harder than having some news and making a decision about what to do about it. I wish you the best in this journey you are taking, and will be one of many who will be willing to walk it with you.

I'm sorry to 'hear' this news. I hope they get it all and that is the end of the matter.

Also, that is sad you won't be going on holiday to see your sister.

Sending (((BIG HUGS))) your way!

I'm sorry to hear about this, but yes: your mantra is a good one. It will be okay.

I hope you'll be able to have the vacation later in the year. I've had several friends go through breast cancer recently. It's certainly no fun, but they are all alive, happy, and engaged in all sorts of activities now, and that will be you, once you're done with the treatment.

you'll be fine. i just know.
surgery is a good thing, somewhat magical. it can take a wicked piece of tissue right out and then you will be alright.
ASAP is a good plan. it WILL be ok.
but man, it's scary to contemplate. be calm and positive. you can be one of the lucky!
i was and every day i wake up grateful.
i had a similar mantra.

I'm so sorry I have not been on LJ to check on you. From what I can gather these last few days have been tremendously difficult for you and Dave. I'm sending you both hugs and wishing you comfort and a successful outcome on your surgery.

I'm so sorry this has happened... (I'm a few days behind, so I'm a bit stunned by this!) I am glad that this was found early and being dealt with early and immediately! You are in my thoughts and I send you my sincerest wishes for absolutely the best outcomes in the consultations and surgery and whatever else may be ahead! I've had many medical problems in my life, and I know to a certain extent how daunting news like this can be. So *hugs* and heartfelt wishes to you! <3 Hil
