I'm starting this blog to keep my loved ones abreast (he he he) of my health, because it is so hard for me to tell my stories over and over. I hope it works well for all of us.

30 years without bacon and all I got was cancer
I have inflammatory breast cancer. I have banned myself from googling it, so I don't know that much about it yet, but I'm sure that a year from now I will be an honorary expert. For now I will learn all of the necessary details from my oncologist (I have an oncologist?), and she won't know specific details about my situation until 3:30 on Tuesday. That's when she will collate all of the data that has been collected from my body since Tue. Oct. 19, assess the situation, and come up with a treatment plan. It sounds like at a minimum I will have chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation, in that order <gulp>.
