A Reason to be Hopeful!

A few weeks ago, I found about 4 or 5 more small tumor nodules on the right (from my viewpoint) lower quadrant of the right breast. I knew I had maybe 8-10 nodules on the left side, from below to the upper quadrant. Today, I decided to feel around to see if I still had them all.

This morning, all I could feel was one small one on the right side and one larger one on the upper left quadrant. I was really happy - radiation is working and I'm seeing results!

However, after radiation, when I saw the doctor, I felt again and this time I felt two nodules on the right and two on the upper left quadrant. My enthusiasm is tempered a bit now, but I'm still really happy that all this daily radiation is doing the trick! Take that, nasty cancer cells!

24 treatments down and 4 more to go! Yay!! More reasons to celebrate!
