Michele came home today. It was a stressful day with many highs and lows. When we received the pathology report we were both floored. It confirmed that she really dodged a speeding bullet. I will let her explain more when she feels up to posting but long story short, both of her breasts were filled with two different types of cells that are known to develop into breast cancer. Had they not found the second cancer and had Michele opted for a lumpectomy, the nurse predicted she would have developed another cancer in the next twelve months. I feel very lucky. Catching that second very hard to find cancer put into motion decisions that likely saved Michele's life. Lots to think about and be thankful for.
