Although this is a terrible desiease, we are blessed in that it was caught very early and it was not in her lymph system and had not spread to surrounding tissue...we are now just waiting for the Estrogen receptors pathology report and if it comes back positive she will be in the 95-97% survival statistical pool...But something like this does make us think about what is important in our lives and re evaluate priorities...So guys, go home tonight and give her a big hug, and then find out when she's had her last Mammogram!!! one in nine....ONE IN NINE, will get breast cancer, and early detection is the absolute key to survival..
Alan, I appologize for taking up band width on non car stuff...I don't normally do that, but hey if I can get one woman to get her self checked out it is worth it...besides I wanted to just say Thanks to all the nice folks that frequent this board, thanks for your encouraging words, and especially for your prayers, God is Good!!....we'll see ya on the track, Tom
