"Breast cancer" Anna replied.
"Oh that's what I have!" almost as if we are now part of the club.
Our first trip to the Huntsman was in a word; amazing. For those of you who haven't been there it has a very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. We first had a bunch of paperwork to fill out and then were taken back to meet the treatment team. We met with three doctors, the lead Doctor, a Fellow, and a Resident. The lead doctor's name is Dr. Ward. He seems really nice and personable. He talked to us about the kids, our day-to-day activities, etc. We then met the main nurse, Marsha, and then a social worker, Lisa, who was there to check on our emotional state. At one point we had all five of them together in our room talking to us about the future. It was a really cool experience.
At this point the plan of attack is to do more testing to determine if the cancer has spread anywhere else in the body. Anna has a PET scan and an MRI scheduled for next week. These tests will help us determine if we are going to do surgery or chemotherapy first. The decision will be made when we go back to meet with Dr. Ward on the 25th of May. We are really glad to have things moving along the way that they are.
