I'm nervous about today...

and we find out about our niece Jessica and her new surgery. I'm nervous and worried and am hoping for something good to come out of the doctor's visit, but at the same time, when they said they found more cancer, that's not a good thing. Depending on what she has done, she may want me to go stay with her to help her out. Driving her to appointments and doing all the cooking and cleaning at her house. She has a lot to think about. She's only 31. But at least she has youth on her side, right? I keep telling myself that. Today is going to take forever.

I hope you all have a good rest of the week.

Hugs, Patt

About Jessica.

Well, the doctor sat them down and said, they had taken two mm's of tissue surrounding the lump she had and that's what came back abnormal. So now they want to go in and take another 2 mm's for further biopsy results. (I'm not sure on the measurement) Then two weeks after that they'll find out if it had spread. Then it would be time to take further steps. Lots of things for Jess to think about and now she has to miss another two weeks from work. She said, "Why don't people think about cancer before you get it. If I had known I would have saved for it and not be so broke now." Poor angel, another thing to worry about. Last time we got her a gift card for Barnes and noble but this time we're going to give her money towards rent. WE figure that would help much more. So until the surgery and the biopsy results come back, we really don't know much more then we did. *sigh* Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts.
