I've been waiting 3 1/2 months for this: the plan is in place, and first thing in the morning we leave for Birmingham. Tomorrow is surgical markings at noon, and Nuclear Medicine at 1 to have dye injected for the sentinel node biopsy (to ensure the cancer has not spread to my lymph nodes). I check in at the hospital at 5 a.m. Wednesday morning.
I made the right choice. I know this in my heart, yet I am flat-out terrified. Not a lot else to say about it, but I wanted to put that out there.
