Hi everyone!  Kerri here with a little update for ya….

The port went in yesterday without a hitch. (My surgeon is fast and fabulous!!) I’m bandaged up nicely and oh-so-tender, but all things considered, it’s really no big deal.  I think the big deal is the “no shower until Saturday” part. (*plugging nose*) Yuck. 😉  I did try to bribe the nurses for some Versed for home use – but that was a no-go and a half.  I think they thought I was kidding.  😉   I’ll try harder next time.

At my Oncology appointment this morning I received the results from my Echocardiogram, CT Scans (chest, abdomen, and pelvis), and full-body bone scan. And the fantastic news is – – – there’s no sign of cancer in my vital organs and bones!  Whew!!!!!  What a relief!!!

So – it’s confirmed – the cancer is limited to the three tumors in my breast and my axillary lymph nodes.  I can certainly live without boobies and armpits.  Don’tcha think???  I still have to do 20 weeks of chemo and 24 weeks of radiation, with

surgery in between, but ruling out the vital organs and bones makes me feel 120% better about my fight.  There’s no doubt that I’m on the winning team for this one.

My next appointment with the Oncologist is this coming Tuesday, and it’s a ‘teaching’ appointment.  My family and I will learn everything there is to know about the chemotherapy treatments…the medicines that will be used, how I’ll receive them, what to expect physically, etc.  I feel very anxious to get it started, so I can be closer to done!!!  But wait, I am getting a bit kerried-away.  I’ve gotta remember – – slow and steady wins the race.

Thank you all for your continued support and prayers – – and for the AMAZING outpouring of financial donations that have been made on the Go Fund Me page.  I am humble and appreciative, and once I lick this, I will certainly pay it all forward in honor of the kindness you all have in your hearts.

I’ll check back in with you in a few days.  Be safe, stay warm, and have a wonderful weekend!!!

Love and hugs – K
