    Update...

    I spoke with Jim (Ex) yesterday.

    His wife has been diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer.
    She will have an MRI on both breasts prior to surgery.
    The plan then will be to have a lumpectomy on Sept. 15th.
    They will also check lymph glands to try to be sure of no spread.

    This will be followed with 5 weeks of radiation (5 days a week),
    and then 8 years of medication.

    Please continue to remember Cathy and Jim in prayer.

    Exclamation UPDATE!!!! SURGERY! The show starts at about 8 am THIS Wednesday the 16th.

    SURGERY! The show starts at about 8 am THIS Wednesday the 16th. They’ll put the wires in at about 8:30 am at the South Miami Hospital “Breast Cancer Center” and then over to the main hospital for the nuclear medicine. At around 11:30 they’ll inject the dye and the actual surgery is at 2:00 pm. It's a Lumpectomy not the more serious Mastectomy. That morning, I’ll have a good book or three (including my Bible) and be settled in for the LONG haul. I’m taking that day off and the next too, since she will be admitted overnight in case she gets serum sickness from the antibiotics or pain meds. She is at extreme risk from that, since it has happened before.

    Here we go, folks.

    Thanks for the update, Jim.

    Your wife is in my prayers.

    I'm glad that they've caught this early and it sounds like she is in very good hands.

    Thanks for the post Jim!

    Prayers are ongoing daily, Sir! Hang in there! Your strength will help her persevere!

    Call me if you need to chat while you wait for her to come out of surgery.

    Jim and Cathy,

    You will be in my prayers.
    I will be on the way back from visiting the granddaughter (and her parents) in TN on Wed.

    But, I will definitely remember what you are going through.
    Wed. will probably be harder on you than the Mrs., Jim.

    My wife and I dated for several years, (some of it long distance) saying "someday we'll get married". Then she was diagnosed with breast cancer, a large "inter ductile" (bad) tumor, and I sold my interest in a business and moved to where she was and we got married.

    That was 13 years ago, she is doing fine and hasn't had any sort of reoccurrence.

    Stage 1 and doing a lumpectomy; she has a great chance; she will be in my thoughts.

    Thanks for the update.

    Both of you are in our prayers.
