On June 14, 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It had not gone to other places in my body, and now I have completed chemo and mastectomy (followed by mastectomy on normal side). I have been able to work continuously, with the enormous and unending support of my patients, my staff and my coworkers. I continue to be humbled by the constant kindness provided to me by those I am supposed to be careing for, and by the many who have walked this path before me.
Since I am officially done with chemo, today, I got my port out (the fancy IV in my chest). I said to the very large and kind surgical tech, Marcus, as I exited the radiology suite, " thank you and I hope I never see you again."
