I found out last week that Auntie V (my aunt who I am responsible for, and is in a nursing home) has bilateral breast masses. She did a repeat mammo yesterday, and the radiologist confirmed that there are masses bilaterally. I was told last week that one of the two on the left displays all the tendencies of being malignant.

This should possibly explain some of her pain. She seemed to take the news pretty well, and was waiting to hear what I had to say. I told her we will proceed with the needle biopsy, and will take it one step at a time from there.

I promised her that I will make sure that FIRST AND FOREMOST: she is not in pain; and second: I will be certain I understand EVERYTHING before we make any decison for each step.

It may be a long road ahead, but I believe that with God's Grace, we will get through this.I also believe that this past year has been God's way of getting me prepared to take this on.

Even when a person is old and prepared for life's end in a few years, I would think it still would not be something a person wants to experience. So sad. Has she had her yearly exams all along? It sounds pretty involved to have come up in a year. Hope and pray they can "get it all" and she is comfortable.

Found out "unofficially" from the radiology report that all three places biopsied ARE CANCEROUS. We don't acutally see the doctor until the 26th. I suppose that's when we will work on a care plan. I don't know yet if the nursing home staff told Auntie V that they got the report yesterday or not. I will find out tonight at family night dinner at the NH.

Just keep the prayers coming, please!
