My Journey through Breast Cancer
On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.
I don't normally use the word "hell" that way, but at 2:24 p.m. today, it is 111 degrees outside. Man, they weren't kidding when they said today would be "the hot day." And the word hell just seems appropriate.
I am the wife of one hunky man, the super mom of three adorable little girls, and master of two dogs and a fish named Nemo. Life is crazy, exhausting and often Lord-of-the-Flies-ish ... but life is good!
the short version
I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer on October 11, 2013, at the age of 38. I had a bi-lateral, or double mastectomy on November 7. I began chemo in early December, which will last until mid-April. Final reconstructive surgery should happen some time early in the summer of 2014. I will then go on living happily ever after.

His Hunkyness w Josephine
This is hubby. Isn't he hunky? He is the reason I climb mountains, love baseball and the animated Star Wars series, and have learned to relax about the little things. Without him life would truly be dull (and sadly devoid of video game lessons).
