Thursday – Mom spoke with her surgeon, and sounded relieved. He calls her condition “pre-cancerous” and says it can be treated with a lumpectomy. So that sounds very hopeful. A lot of people calling and wishing me well and offering to help for my first chemo tomorrow.
Am missing a conference I was supposed to attend, the National Women’s Studies Conference, a friend and colleague will be reading my paper (on Rebecca Clarke and Virginia Woolf). Also Mom has cancelled our vacation plans (which had sounded so good, to go to the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon – my birthplace, my parents were actors when the Festival was small). Mom is now (again) talking about coming out here to take care of me.
