Stage 2a

Happy Monday!

I spoke with Nikki at Dr. Duven's office this morning to get the scoop on my pathology reports. They tell me I have Stage 2a cancer. Basically - out of the 4 nodes that were taken at the start of the surgery - 1 tested positive. Dr. Duven then took the rest in that line and one out of the 12 that he took tested positive. So - 2 out of 16. Nikki says those are pretty good odds. She can't give me a 100% guarantee that the cancer hasn't spread - but odds are in my favor. I need to have the scans ordered by the oncologist to know for sure. I am healing well - actually back at work this morning. I stopped the vicodin in order to drive Jack and Ava to school - that medication sure did take the edge off of the discomfort! I will see how long I last today...Nikki wanted me to go back home and rest and that just might be what I do!

Now I have to wait...wish I could see the oncologist today!
Let's get this party started!

Health & Happiness to you all!
