For which I'm very grateful. I talked to the genetic specialist at Vanderbilt today & we are now suspicious of a mutation in the P53 gene. Evidently families with this genetic mutation are predisposed to all sorts of cancers, in particular sarcoma & breast cancer... Anyway we are going to meet her next week & get the P53 test done. I already know I'm BRCA1 and BRCA2 negative. The outcome of the gene testing, together with the results from the ultrasound & biopsy ought to converge sometime around mid-March with a treatment plan for moving forward. So, I'm looking at it as a month to get myself back in shape before I potentially have more to deal with.
The incision is healing. But at night my quads, hips, and incision hurt like crazy. Feels good most of the day until around 4 or 5 pm. One more day of R&R, I'm going back to work Monday afternoon after we meet with Dr Holt. Looking forward to that. I'm not sure I can make full 9-10 hour days straight away but I'm going to give it my best shot.
Had a nice day today with my Dad & Mike. Then we went to lunch with Kendall before picking up the kids. Relaxing and enjoyable. A friend of Kendall's from Asurion stopped by this evening & it was fun to chat with her. I can't help thinking constantly about missing the International Builders' Show down in Orlando. Sounds like its a great show for LP this year & they are doing just fine without me. Still, I feel like I should be there & I wish I was!
