|Introduction||Diagnosed with Stage III Invasive Lobular Carcinoma ("ILC") on July 8, 2009. Husband says he distinctively remembers Stage IV as the initial diagnosis. I am the one with the notebook. I get to be the writer of my history. Stage III diagnosis gave me some wiggle room. The universe, however, is not so generous with its allotment of "wiggle room." Diagnosed with metastatic invasive carcinoma in the lymph nodes on July 11, 2011. I've always been a bit of an over-achiever. Third battle started in September 2015 - ongoing. My struggle to define survival has taken on an interesting dimension. I am now in my Fabulous Fifties and full on post-menopausal (finally and WTF - this sucks!!!). Have a kiddo working on her PsyD.; planning a wedding with my eldest; and a snarky10th grader; and have been on an one-night stand with the same guy for over 30 years. Still standing. I'm not ready to embrace the alternative! This is my cancer auto-blogography. DISCLAIMER ... It is not my intent to provide medical advice. I am only sharing my individual thoughts and experiences (and some of my own research) as I journey down the breast cancer "rabbit-hole."|
