Actually, tomorrow is another huge step in the long journey of battling breast cancer. But that just doesn’t make for a catchy headline, does it?
Early on January 14 Amy and I will head to the hospital and she will undergo a double mastectomy to remove any remaining traces of cancer cells and to preemptively remove any tissue that could possibly host more cancer in the future. Amy’s recovery will take several weeks, and we have family and friends around to help for much of that, but we have opened the Meal Train back up to help with weekly meals. Amy won’t be able to do much during recovery except sit and rest, so we truly appreciate those that have signed up to help with meals.
The big ask
The big thing we are praying for is that as the doctors remove tissue tomorrow, they find NO traces of cancer. We are praying that all tissue in Amy’s body be completely free and clear of cancer cells. Will you join us in that prayer as we head into this next chapter?
The surgery takes about half a day and Amy likely won’t be in a recovery room until late afternoon, but we will do our best to send updates once she’s settled post op.
Thank you all for standing with us. We couldn’t get through this without the love and support of each one of you.
Amy and Ryan
