Alright- here's the info:
Mom's officially got stage 3 Breast Cancer. The mass they found under here arm is cancer as well. She's going to have a Mastectomy on the 16th, probably followed by Chemo. What we don't know- and what we won't know until the surgery- is how far the cancer has spread. But because it's under her arm ( re: past the lymph nodes) it could be invading her body somewhere else as we speak. My nodes were clear- so this is new territory for us. I'm hoping it hasn't gotten far- because... well, I don't have to spell it out for you all, do I?
I will try to keep you all informed on how things are going. But between work, the family and this- my time "off " is going to be sparse. That's why I've been AWOL lately- just no time for the www. Thankfully, my cousins Rae & Patti are coming in to help ( THANKS!!!!!!!) so that should be good for me and Mom. And the people at work are helping with my scheduling- so that I'll be there for Mom when she needs me.
I hope you all are well, and having a lovely fall. And October is Breast Cancer month- so get your friggin' Mammo's my friends! Else I'll have to come to your houses' and kick your collective butts! Oh, and click that link on my sidebar- and get "Corporate America" to pay for a mammo for someone who can't afford one. Lend a fellow female a hand- and possibly save a life!
And now for something completely different ;-)
"The Priest and the Rabbi"
A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other on an airplane. After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked, "Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?"
The rabbi responded, "Yes, that is still one of our laws."
The priest then asked, "Have you ever eaten pork?"
To which the rabbi replied, "Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich." The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.
A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, "Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?"
The priest replied, "Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith."
The rabbi then asked him, "Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?"
The priest replied, "Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith."
The rabbi nodded understandingly and remained silent, thinking, for about five minutes.
Finally, the rabbi said, "It sure beats a ham sandwich, doesn't it?"
Have a great weekend Everyone!
Love and Peace, KC!
