    “D-Day”, The Confirmed Diagnosis

    With the rounds of mammograms, MRIs, biopsies, needle aspirations and scans, we knew the news would be coming.  An appointment had been set to meet with my doctor in a few days, but in advance, I received a personal on March 23 call from Dr. Provonost.  With outstanding grace and compassion she gave me the news. I had breast cancer.  Not fully known but considered to be between Stage 1 and 2.  All information tied to the aggressiveness or spread of the cancer will come after the breast is removed.  But, the unknown period was now over. 

    I had my questions ready and rattled them ..

    Was my cancer hereditary tied to my mother’s breast cancer?..Answer was no, as mom was 70 at diagnosis and my cancer was a different form. 

    How long would I need to plan to recover?  Answer was 4 weeks to recover from the mastectomy, but the treatments of chemo and/or radiation could not be determined until after the breast removal.   

    What did this mean in terms of risk to our daughters, my sister and others in the family?  Answer was – I’d be tested for genetically links and then we’d take it from there.

    I hung up the phone.  I was home alone and surprisingly not in shock, but quite scared as possible reality which now became complete reality.  Wanting to tell Bruce was immediate to let him know, but I waited until he came home as to not disrupt his day.  Upon arrival that evening, I shared with him all the details.  His strength in his denial stages vanished, but his new found strength grew.  He was still able to look me lovingly in the eyes and say, we’ll be OK.  You will be fine, you know that.  I know that and you will never know. (You will never know has been his  line for  over 13 years — tied to the amount of his love to me).

    I did know I would be fine and will be fine.  I would now go through the text book standard procedures of addressing and combating cancer.  Doctors would take care of me and I trusted my circle of care tremendously.  But I worried more about Bruce, my husband who would watch from the sidelines and hurt more as a by stander watching what I would go through. 

    We’ve never been closer and if we could possibly could ever get to the next stage of soul mates bound in love and faith…cancer brought us that beauty.    Bruce, YOU HAVE NO IDEA!
