So my news last week wasn't as good as I expected but it wasn't as bad as it might have been. I have what is known as DCIS.

Explanation of DCIS.

My cancer is "in situ" again rather than invasive. 

I was back in the hospital today for more out patient surgery. More poking about and a look at my lymph node thingies.

They injected me with fluid containing radiation to do some tracking. I was quite disappointed to find out that I wouldn't glow in the dark. They then took pictures of my breast with a huge camera that was similiar to an MRI. They lowered it down until it almost touched my nose. I won't say I'm claustrophobic...okay maybe a wee bit... but I was definitely getting uncomfortable after about 10 minutes of that.

I will be having further radiation treatment for five weeks so the glowing bit might come true yet....LOL

I am totally zonked. I had to get up at 5:30 a.m. to get to the hospital for 7 a.m. I only live about 20 minutes away but it takes that long to jump start me in the mornings. I'm definitely not a morning person and with no coffee to help out...eeek.

I'm trying to stay awake right now so I'll sleep through the night. Otherwise it'll be me staring at the ceiling at 3:00 am. 

The saga continues I guess. No worries.

Take care :)


  1. Oh hon. I can empathize and sympathize. Been through breast cancer twice. If you need someone to talk to contact me.

  2. Thinking of you and send love. xx

  3. Please continue the Saga, my thoughts are with you. No early morning coffee before hospital visits!!?? That might be worse than any treatment. Stay strong as I'm sure you will.

  4. I can't tell you how glad I am that your diagnosis was not more serious. Treatment is a lot to go through, I know. Not first hand but from being by the side of close friends and family.

    Much Love Mary Ann. Praying that all goes well for you.
    xx, Carol

  5. Awe! Bless you, Mary Ann. I hope you don't glow too very muvh!!!

  6. If you do glow, can they see you from the Space Station do you think?
    Positive vibes hun : )

  7. My thoughts and prayers are with you Mary Ann. I'm sure all will be well after all those radiation treatments. Please take care.

  8. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how you're doing. It's nice to see that you haven't lost your sense of humour. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. Aw, gees, you poor thing! I am thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers. let's get you through all of this and get you healthy! Hugs, dear friend.

  10. {{{Mary Ann}}} Take care of you - thoughts are with you.

  11. Have been catching up with blogs so guess my comment on last post I read was out of date. Hope you are OK xx


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
