    Today I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma in my right breast. I had a routine mammogram on 6/11, that was followed up with an ultrasound on 6/30, and finally followed by a core needle biopsy on 7/21. I have a consult with an oncologist on Monday 7/27, and a consult with a surgeon on Tuesday 7/28. I won't know for sure about surgery or treatment until I've seen those physicians. This cancer was caught fairly early, and so I have high hopes that with surgery and brief treatment, I'll be cancer free before the end of the year.

    I know that others here at our TLP home have been through the same circumstances, so I know I'm not alone. I'm very at peace right now, but definitely would love prayers and positive thoughts from my scrapping sisters.

    I'll keep y'all updated after my appointments next week.
