Really Bad News

Today has been the day from Hell.

1. My surgery was re-scheduled back to October 28th. My parents are out of town in South America, I can't go trick-or-treating with Elizabeth, and I'm going to miss my favorite holiday, Halloween. I'll be all alone on my favorite night of the year.

2. My cat, Lilith, was diagnosed as diabetic. Lucky kitty, she gets to start insulin. Thank goodness for pet insurance.


I will have to have chemo, after all. I had my first oncology appointment today and get more pathology results.

My cancer is both estrogen-receptive positve and HER-2 positive +3.

I'm going to lose my hair, feel terrible, and not be able to take care of my child. Crap.


  1. Oh Polly, I'm so sorry to hear this! I'll call you tomorrow.

  2. oh crap, Polly I am really sorry to hear that- talk about hitting you with alot in one day.
    I'm going to have to go read up on what that cancer jargon means but I am really bummed for you that you'll have to do chemo.

  3. Hey babes. I'm so sorry. 8( I love you loads and will call you this week! -M

  4. Polly, that does suck! Wish I was closer to you to be there for you! I'll have to find a super cool scarf for you, just like Izzy's on Grey's!!!!

    We love you!
