Pat -
Thank you so much. Of course, this will be a very long weekend for me. Being an RN and the best friend of a cancer survivor, I am a huge proponent of we (women) have to encourage one another and advocate for ourselves. Often times, when situations are questionable some healthcare workers become "complacent". I have a complicating factor if indeed my lymph node is positive. I was diagnosed with an Atrial Septal Defect last year. My atrial septal wall looks like swiss cheese and to complicate matters more I under went an ablation for a tachycardic rhythm January, 2010. I have placed the septal repair on hold until we are sure the rhythm is is fixed. But, chemotherapy and ASD share the same complicating factor - Pulmonary Emboli. I will continue to check in with everyone!!!!
