[Edited to fix link.]

Hi everyone!  I typically post and reply quite regularly on this forum.  However, in a week, I'll be AWOL (if I can stay away!) for several months.  I was diagnosed with stage 3, invasive ductal carcinoma, a type of breast cancer, two weeks ago.  I'm journaling my journey on Caring Bridge.  Here's my link if you're interested:

I'll most likely still be checking out the deals thread since I'm subscribed to the thread and don't like to miss deals!  :P

PS I tried going through the link and it said Sorry page can not be found.

I also copy and pasted it and could not get it to work.

Thank you, Tabitha!

I messed up when I pasted the link in. It needs a "visit" in there.  Gosh I can't blame it on "chemo brain" yet, but can I blame it on "fibro brain"?...that, and trying to get 1000 things done before my surgery!

Here it is redone:

Ok that works. If it is ok with you I would like to put you and your family on a prayer list. Take care.

 

Also I think the problem was I didn't have an account. It works fine now that I signed up.

Tabitha - yes, please do!  My entire family can feel all the prayer support!  :D

I set my page up so people had to register so I'd have everyone's email addresses if I needed them.  I'm the only one that sees them.  Caring Bridge just uses them to send update notifications if you're signed up for that.  Otherwise, they should leave you alone. ;)

I just wanted to thank you for all your replies to questions in this forum. I've often used your suggestions. I'm sure they have benefited many others as well.

Please know my thoughts and prayers go with you on your journey. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

God Bless!

Thank you to all!  I know people are praying because I have "the peace that passes all understanding", and it's NOT from me!  laugh

I'm healing well from my bilateral mastectomy and I see the medical oncologist for the first time on Friday to map out the rest of my treatment.  I'll most likely have chemo, radiation (b/c the tumor had 1mm of margin in one spot...needs to be 3cm), and hormonal therapy.  It's going to be a long year!

Thanks again!

Julie
