Bullet Dodged

Mrs. Foot is back home and doing well. She hasn't been able to sleep for more than a couple of hours at a time, but then if you just had a large amount of tissue gouged out of your chest 3 days ago, you wouldn't either. The percocet does help a little.

The pathology report came in yesterday.

There were precancerous cells present (noninvasive ductal carcinoma) in both breasts. There's no way to detect noninvasive breast cancer until it becomes invasive, and the surgeon told her that had he known, he would have pushed for the double rather than merely presenting it as an agressive preventative option.

Whew.
