Lovely As A Ghost

This is an image of a bone scan to determine if cancer had moved into my
bloodstream and deposited itself into my skeletal system. I am very fortunate
as none was found.

The mastectomy has been performed and I am doing well. The surgeons tell me
I am a poster child for a quick recovery. No bruising or marks. My temporary reconstructed breast is very interesting and odd. It sits high on my chest,
nothing like a real breast.

A diagnosis of the tumor and lymph nodes has been determined:
Stage 2 Cancer—the first lymph node was found to have cancer (1 out of 12).
In other words, great prognosis. I will begin chemotherapy 01.06.05.
