So many things have happened this month!
THE SURGERY http://www.breasttreatment.com/
I guess the biggest thing for me this month was having surgery. On Oct. 14, I had lumpectomy surgery at North Hills Surgery Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Dr. Cross removed the "affected area", and he did a very nice job! I know I was in good hands, and he was intentional in removing everything that might possibly be cancer so that he was able to get clean margins all around the area. He also removed some lymph nodes which were tested and found to be "all clear" of cancer cells! The pathology report says No Invasion, so all of this is good news, and I am grateful to have dedicated doctors that basically saved my life. It was caught early, and early detection is the key to survival. Fletcher has been a wonderful and supportive husband through all of this, and I am thankful for him and for my parents that helped to take care of me after surgery, so I didn't have to do anything for at least a week! But, I feel like I have spent the entire month of October dealing with this, and I'm ready to move on to something else more positive. But what?
AROUND TOWN IN BENTONVILLE, ARKANSAS
One of my favorite places in Bentonville is the public library. It is very nice and uses leading edge technology. I enjoy going there and browsing through the books, and checking out a few to read.
