Expect the unexpected

Well, it is late and I am just starting to feel normal from all the pain medication that they gave me for my biopsy. My appt. was at 3:00pm and was only suppose to take an hour but unexpectedly they found another mass and a lump node that looked suspicious. My Dr. and radiologist was Dr. Jacobs and I could tell that he was very concerned. He decided to be very thorough and go ahead and biopsy the other two areas, so we left their office around 6:30pm. Poor Jeff was really worried out there and finally after a couple of hours I asked one of the nurses to please let him know what was going on.

Before we left they made me go back and take more mammogram's to show the markers that he also placed in me for the surgeon to know the exact areas that are in question. Dr. Jacobs and all the nurses were so nice and apologetic for all that I was going through and going to go through. He could not tell us then and there, the results because they have to go through the lab but... he tried his best to prepare us for the news. I was doing good up until then and then the tears came and I had a hard time stopping them.

So here we are, I don't want to go to bed because I don't want tomorrow to come. We still may not know even then, they will call and tell us something in the morning. The waiting game may go as long as Monday. I am doing ok, the numbness is wearing off, it is beginning to hurt  and I am suppose to lay low with this arm for a few days... I told them I was good at that.

Thanks for all you love and concern, we are truly blessed to have you as our family and friends. Jeff is holding up but that is a tough position to be in, we both are scared and really didn't think that it would go this far. The kids have been at Amy and John's since school was out, thought it would be better to keep them busy and Miss Angie will make sure of that. I am a fighter and so I am sure things will work out, I have a great support system. We just need to get all the facts, study it out and then pray to know what to do.

We love you.

Lynn, Jeff and kids
