Lynnwood...awaiting pathology reports that had to go out for a second opinion. In limbo and it sucks. Swedish pathologist won't come out and say whether its Atypia or DCIS/IDC. 39 on Saturday, so I was hoping to celebrate with some good news.

Worries me that they need the second opinion as it then it must be borderline. :(

Wife and I live in Vancouver, WA. Used to live in Tacoma and commuted to work at Ft. Lawton. What a miserable drive that was. Lived in Tacoma when the mountain blew; ash everywhere. Say, is The Dog House Restaurant still around? I liked that. Ivar's as well.

Wife's ER+ turned triple negative with numerous small mets to the spine. She's now on Xeloda as the estrogen blockers all failed her.

Let's plan something! I'm out of town right now but Nov and Dec are good. We can meet in Lynden, Bellingham or Mt Vernon. Did you know knitted knockers come from Apple Yarn in Bellingham? Maybe they know of other groups.

Pm me and we'll plan something. I had the sweetest little Keeshond for many years. We can talk dogs.

For those of you in the Seattle area - I'm interested in the who, why and hows you went about selecting your providers. There are so many specialists to be seen. Did you go with Seattle Cancer Care Alliance? Swedish? Polyclinic? Virginia Mason? Elsewhere? Do you believe you made the right provider choice for you or would you change things? Many thanks.
