Milady is well

I had hoped to take the laptop to the hospital, but we ended up not staying long enough for me to even log in had I taken it.

Milady is very well. She is in great spirits, and is doing physically well. Moreover, the stress associated with the cancer is gone. Her blood pressure is down from 138/98 or so down to 118/78, and her sugar (we think) is also down from borderline high to normal.

She had a full bi-lateral mascectomy, and we have chosen not to have any reconstruction.

Thanks for everyone's prayers and well wishes.

Milady will have surgery Friday

I was going to post the story of our trip to New York last week, but the computer didn't co-operate. Last night, I was going to try again, but then I had another migraine. So maybe tonight or tomorrow. ;)

Milady's doctors have advised her to go ahead and have a preventative mascectomy, and scheduled it for Friday. She will also have a preventative hysterectomy in December.

We haven't confirmed it yet, but it appears that her mother's family may have Cowden Disease in it, which means that her chances of feminine cancers are in the 30 to 40 percent range.

Please pray for Milady, and the entire family.
