January 17th!

  I finally got the kinks worked out! January 17th is the day I finally get to meet the surgical oncologist! I cannot wait. Though I am a bit anxious, I am excited. I can't wait to ask the zillion and one questions that I have! Lord grant this doctor patience, he may need it! Fortunately I am seeing one of the best...he is the director of the surgical oncology unit at UNC's high risk breast clinic. How awesome is that? I have done some research and he is highly recommended, even earning the "Patients Choice" award for 2012.

 They'll do a mammogram first (though, they may have to change and do an ultrasound since I am still nursing Em and will be until around the 20th) and then I'll meet with the nurse practitioner and the doctor. From what the receptionist said, I'll meet with the plastic surgeon about a week or so later. Then it's a pre-op appointment, and surgery. Let's just hope it goes as easy as she made it sound.The countdown is on. I am ready.
