We have made one of the most difficult decisions we’ve ever faced. We have decided to have a bilateral mastectomy. This will give Tess the lowest chance of reoccurrence. We informed the doctors this evening and will await the scheduling of the surgery. Hopefully it will happen soon. We consulted with the plastic surgeon today and decided that she will also have reconstructive surgery at the same time. It will be a traumatic operation and she will be laid up for several weeks afterward, but this plan gives her the best shot at remaining cancer free and living a normal life.
We still see God working through all of this in the lives of others but mostly in ours. He has drawn us closer to him and to each other. Tess said, “It feels like we hit the lottery in prayer.” God has truly blessed us with the people he allows us to do life with.
