Found out today from the surgeon that the second pathology on the nodes confirmed they were in fact clear of any cancer cells! At least that piece can be put to rest now and for that I am thankful & in a much better mood than I have been the last few days.
Today we received paperwork in the mail from the genetic counselor. Information such as maternal & paternal grandparents, parents & siblings, their current age & age of cancer diagnosis if applicable. This information will then be reviewed by the genetic counselor who will then determine if Mike should come in for genetic counseling. We'll get that in the mail tomorrow and then wait. Again.
We figure the rest of our lives will be spent waiting for one thing or another, but I imagine that will eventually become routine. Another "new normal".
Until then, I'm going to focus on figuring out what we're going to do on our family vacation in August.
