Treatment Plan

I realized I did a whole post about the day, but neglected the treatment plan! And, of course, everyone wants to know!

1. Mastectomy in a week or so. Family pictures previous to this, so I can remember me.

2. 4-6 weeks after surgery, 4 cycles of yucky chemo, every other week.

3. 12 weeks of not-so-yucky chemo, weekly.

4a. Six-ish weeks of radiation, daily, after step 3 and concurrent with step 4b.
4b. Continue not-yucky, hair-growing, no-vomiting chemo for a year, every three weeks.

5. Be cancer free. Burn the ashes and stomp on them gleefully. I'm not sure what this means, exactly, but you get the general idea.

Oh Molly,

My prayers are with you. I thought it was a little bothersome when I got an MRI of my brain a couple weeks ago to rule out a benign tumor, which I ended up not having, after all.

It sounds like you have a good prognosis, though. Just lots of tests, drugs, resting and more tests for the next six months of your life. Best wishes on your journey! I hope it is one that includes lots of help for you and your family from those around you. :) Kristina Lewis Green (from Wasatch JHS and Sophomore year at Skyline)
