Test results back--NO chemo needed and first radiation treatment complete!

My oncologist called me earlier this week with the awesome news that I do NOT have to have chemo. My Mammaprint test came back with very low risk and recommended no chemo. I meet with her week after next to discuss what I'll need to do after radiation. 

I had my first radiation treatment today and will have my second tomorrow. I felt absolutely nothing. There was a light on the wall that lite up with the words BEAM ON when the beam was on. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't even have known they were doing it. The paint pen marks on me remind me of the day Caroline got in my make up drawer when she was two. 

I took time this afternoon after my treatment to go visit Melissa McDonald. Please pray for her. She has a long road to recovery. If you are able to spare a few dollars, please donate to her Go Fund Me page. Every little bit helps. Here is the link

Life is good!
