Short blog to say I'm negative for both tests! I don't even think I could have imagined my own relief. For those who have offered to help--beware. This means that next Friday, June 4, I will have a lumpectomy. I'm still seeing the surgeon today to see if these tumors are as gigantic as they seem to me, but this test result is the best piece of news I have received so far--I get to keep my breasts and my ovaries, Lenny doesn't have to be tested, and I don't have to worry (more than the general population) about a variety of other cancers that are common for BRCA-positive people. What a weight off of these little shoulders.
