Good news to report: The lab came back within the range where we could wait until later this year to address the cancer.
So what does this mean? This means that we can go forward with our plan to breast-feed this kid when it gets here. This is good because babies like antibodies. However, since this Mom has a complicated medical history, baby can only reap those benefits for 6 months. At that point we have to wean so I can have another scan +/- a treatment (that will be decided this fall).
Whew. We could have done it, but I'm glad that's one less thing we're going to have to juggle with a newborn.
Meanwhile, my back is killing me. Mostly it hurts me when I sit down, but not when I'm standing. However, my feet hurt after I've been standing for a while. In short, the conundrum is that I'm not comfortable anywhere.
