Just wanted to report that my mom did great with her surgery Tuesday, so thanks for all your prayers. It was a long day, but she did fantastic. :)

Billy and I were able to get out and celebrate our anniversary over the weekend, so for once we had a dinner conversation not related to doctor’s appointments, taking medicines, or paying bills. It was great!!

Also, Billy talked to the genetic counselor and got the results of my P53 test. I tested negative for the P53 mutation, but I do have a “variance” in part of my P53 strand. I’m not exactly sure what this means, and there haven’t been many studies that determine if this variance is cancer-related…so…that’s where we stand as of now.

7 more weeks of taxol!!
