And then the phone rang

Jack had a biopsy on Thursday, which is why I didn’t post the end of last week. We got the report today, and it’s…mixed, I guess you could say. There are precancerous cells in multiple locations. Because breast cancer runs in his family, the doctor is willing to recommend a double mastectomy. So… top surgery, just like that. Which is great! And certainly easier than the path that involves hormones and massive weight loss before it could be considered.

But at the same time, scary, and challenging, since he’s a stay-at-home dad and I’m the sole breadwinner, and I’m less than 4 months back from maternity leave, so I don’t have much PTO saved up.

We’ll manage, though. This isn’t the first major health issue we’ve had to deal with (long time readers may remember the benign brain tumor he had removed). We have a community to rely on, and a network of family-by-choice willing to help.
