So my old friend inflammation is back. This time, it’s in the breast cancer form. Supposedly it’s very rare. I can’t do any research because Google just freaks me out and gives me more things to perseverate about. It seems to me that the medical community is very good at giving you things in digestible little chunks. I can deal with those chunks. Checking in with Dr. Google will just spew the chunks everywhere and I won’t have the strength to clean it up.

My next week looks like lots of tests and an appointment with an oncologist on Thursday.  Huge thanks to Jennifer for helping us out with Oswald’s care. He cannot be left alone. If you know us in real life and think you can help out with his care when we have to be at an appointment for me please comment here or call or email. We are hoping once the original diagnostics are underway and chemo has started our need should lessen.

I am off of Facebook for the foreseeable future. I can’t deal with the extra work of commenting and keeping up. I need all the energy I have for me. I will still post a photo and any updates here.

I have to have a CT scan and a bone scan coming up. And an appointment with the oncologist on Thursday.

  1. So they’re saying it’s Inflammatory Breast Cancer?
    I totally get you on the not googling. Definitely don’t. But the breastcancer.org forums are a good source of info & there’s an entire IBC subforum. Take care. One step at a time, the plan will all come together and you’ll get through it.
