Hey everyone. Life kinda sucks for me right now because my mother's breast cancer is back and it has metastasized, she just had surgery to remove as much as they could find monday, and then she's going on radical chemo and radiation starting in 3 weeks =( The hardest part of it all was she was diagnosed with the cancer last year and had a mastectomy, and they told her she was all clear and cancer-free - no need for precautionary anti-cancer drugs or radiation treatment. and now this. I kinda hate the world for that.

The reason it's back and they didn't see it sooner was that the diagnostic technology used to find the cancer isn't advanced enough, so if you have lots of money, feel free to donate it to breast cancer research. I had no idea this kind of thing would happen to my mother since we don't have any cancer anywhere in the family. If you pray, praying for my mum would be awesome, too. she needs all the good vibes she can get.

Anyway, I need something to make me feel better, and so I figure specktra should get my mind off it temporarily (that, and gossip girl, and weeds episodes!), so here's another FOTD i'm catching up on.





bad side =(

Looks great!

PS I know what you mean about the breast cancer. My mother had a lump in her breast a couple of months back and they took it out, said it wasen't goign to come back and that either way, there was 0% it was cancer and note that we went to a good doctor. Well the other day she felt this lump, it was small and the next day it got super big. I was even suprised at how fast it grew and in the same place as the last lump they had "taken out." We went to the radiologist last week and we are now waiting for the results. My mom was crying at the pain of having her brest flatten so much and the lump was making it worse! the nurse was acting all mean too, she was like "oh, well, suck it up..." I mean I understand, they have to be strong and all that stuff, but at least say something else like "It will only be a minute" or just keep your mouth shut! anyways, I ser hope your mom feels better and everything turns out fine.
