It's just me checking in. How is it going up there? Do you have an appointment scheduled yet for a PET, or with an MO? I hope it is on the calendar. How is your body/neck/chest feeling? Are you feeling it more with the newer attention to this? That is always what happens to me. I have a girlfriend who is a doctor and she had triple negative bc 10 years ago with a recurrence to her supraclavicular nodes just last year and they did not consider it Stage IV. She did have to go through more treatment, but she is NED now. So there are good stories out there (like the beautifully strong Daczahow!).
How is your energy? How are things with your dad? Are you able to keep up with what you need to do with taking care of him? I so hope so. My energy has dropped and so I have been laying low for a short little port removal surgery this Friday. Excited about that, but I have come to love my little port as she keeps them away from drawing blood from my feet (due to bilateral node removal and lymphadema :( ). So I am working toward getting comfy with blood drawn anywhere but my arms.
Sending much love your way!
