My co-worker Rose, her sister Karla and I visited Dr. Rinn at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle to get a second opinion. Dr. Ingber had already talked with her and several other local specialists about my case and they were in 100% agreement about my treatment. I thought it would be a good idea to see someone face-to-face, though. As it turns out, Dr. Rinn is optimistic about my outcome, so that was good to hear. She emphsized that my case is highly unusual in that triple-negative breast cancer almost never comes back after not having shown itself for five years. I guess I’m just extra “lucky,” eh? She thinks the cancer will respond well to treatement. It might never be offically gone from my system, but there are many things we can do to get me through for many years. So, keep praying that the cancer gets a good blast from the chemo, which begins tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. Yippee!
