Aching heart day
Just checked in to the MD Anderson Undiagnosed Breast Clinic.
As a quick back story... in 2014 my wife’s mammogram found two suspicious spots in her left breast. We got her on a plane to Houston and through the MD Anderson diagnostic process. She had two biopsies and thankfully they were nothing sinister.
At that time she was put on an annual mammogram schedule for the rest of her life.
Meanwhile 4 years later my SIL (my brothers wife) was DX’d with breast cancer and went through a radical double mastectomy two weeks ago. This overlapped with my brides annual mammogram. The call with the results came in this Monday. There is a suspicious spot on her on her right breast. It is in proximity to a fibrous tissue mass that was investigated a number of years ago and determined to me nothing sinister so we are hopeful and fairly confident that this is nothing new. But now we start an all day Dx process with a ton of tests and meetings with various Oncologists. She just met her patient advocate and they took her back to get started.
Though this is likely nothing sinister. None the less, this not my deal with the heavens. I have always been the one with the family medical issues, the autoimmune disease and the chronic health stuff so that the rest of the family can be healthy.
That my wife has to go through this again hurts my heart.
This is gonna be a long day.
