I apologize for the last “depressing” post. I’m not usually prone to feeling down. I even feel selfish focusing on myself rather than Sophia. She’s the one who should be depressed, but instead, she’s keeping her spirits high — thanks to many of you!
We heard back from her surgeon yesterday, and our celebrating was a bit early. They saw some more DCIS in the sample they removed, meaning Sophia’s not over this mess just yet. They will either want to do a THIRD surgery on her breast, or give her some sort of radiation therapy. We’re waiting for the final results.
Doesn’t that suck?
We have to keep in mind that DCIS means “Stage 0” cancer, and no one has talked about more serious treatments, like chemotherapy. But still, it is a major major major downer — and Sophia still hasn’t recovered from the first surgery. Can’t someone invent some machine to see cancer cells without removing the tissue first?
I know my blog might seem like a downer lately. Hopefully, you won’t see it like that, but instead focus on Sophia’s inspirational strength, like I do.
On a lighter note, Yahoo and Google mail are now embedding personalized “cancer treatment” ads with the mail. Nice!
