New Breast Imaging Technology

Called Breast Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI). See this link. Downside: "Once an abnormality is seen on BSGI, there is currently no good way to find it in order to do an accurate biopsy. More studies are needed to further develop this technology."

Patrick is going to be unavailable for 2 weeks. He's going out of town for training for his daytime job. Tomorrow night will be Rebecca. Sharon, the agency owner, is bringing Rebecca by during the day to introduce her to Jim. Hopefully, that will smooth the way for him to accept her.

I hate to throw this Patrick chaos onto Jim in the same week that we change to hospice and he starts Day Care. Patrick was going to be one of our "anchors" for the other transitions. Damn!!

Final surgery one month from today.

Prayers and thoughts please for Robin and her sweet Peri, who has just been diagnosed with cancer. The grief on the FDMB for Robin and Peri is overwhelming.

Update: Robin and Glen's Pericles has peacefully crossed the bridge.

Sorry about Patrick going out of town for 2 weeks. But glad you will have your new tatas in a month. Sending lots of love your way.

Thanks for letting us know about Robin and Peri.

Hope the daycare goes well.

The final in final surgery sounds great!
