Almost Wordless Wednesday: DCIS, but we'll take it.

As it turns out, the nebulous fear I cryptically mentioned a few weeks ago has a name. Ductal Carcinoma in situ. And it's in my mom. But it could have been much much worse, so we are grateful that this was the diagnosis.

She meets with the surgeon tomorrow.

We're really, really, grateful.

I never thought I would say this, but that may be the best type of breast cancer to have! The best news of the bad! Very happy to hear it's easily treated. My thoughts are still with her! (And you!)

The best news of the bad- yes, that's exactly how we feel about it. And thanks for the good thoughts! :)

Will keep her in my thoughts and prayers!! I just met someone who was diagnosed with that a year ago. She's free and clear already!!!

Oh, Rachel! I've always been fond of your mom! She's always been sweet and strong. I'm glad that things will be OK for her. I know I speak for my whole family when I say, I hope she shakes this soon.
