Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

It was no April Fool's joke.

I'm officially all done being "baked."

I have to return in a week for the radiologist to check my skin.

And then I think in a few more weeks I have to start having some tests done, and meet with my oncologist again. (I'm a little confused about who I see when, but I'll get it all straightened out eventually).

Next step is to make an appointment with a plastic surgeon to discuss when I can have my preventative right mastectomy and complete reconstruction.

My husband and I were going to go out to celebrate tonight, but I was up for 4 hours last night with some sort of stomach virus (I'll spare you the details), and I seem to be running a slight fever.

So everyone drink a glass of wine for me (or a beer, a chocolate martini, a shot of anything, or a margarita), and celebrate the end of this phase of my treatment.

Breast Cancer Be Gone!

I definitely think a hearty 'Congratulations!!!' is in order.

I will open a good bottle of Carmenere after my walk and raise a glass for you.
