Now we have a plan

I now have a team.  Super.

Apparently my cancer is an aggressive one.  When I first saw my results I thought all of the negatives would be a good thing.  Nope.  My tumor is considered a triple negative which means it is not a hormone based cancer.  Supposedly harder to treat.  My plan calls for chemotherapy followed by a double mastectomy and radiation.  I am thinking that this cancer is going to seriously cramp my style.  Looks like my plans for taking a few of the young horses to some shows next month is not going to happen….

This morning I had a breast MRI.  It was cool.  If I liked techno music I would have bought the album.  It was a lot of repetitive tones, beeps and buzzes.  I could have sworn one of the tones was a robot repeating the word “bill, bill, bill” over and over for 5 minutes straight. Probably a subliminal message installed by the billing department.

Tomorrow I get the results.
