[4 days. Another summit. 5.33 miles. Genetic testing was negative. Second opinion this afternoon.] September 10, 2015

I think we put doctors up on pedestals. Very high, awe-inspiring pedestals. They are people just like you and me and they have opinions just like you and me. They just happened to go to medical school instead of, say, architecture school 🙂

I am very trusting of what people say and tend not to question an opinion when it comes to a subject matter I don’t know much about – like medicine! Good thing Will is a diligent researcher and constant questioner. Thanks to him we sought out a second opinion even though my surgeon has a stellar reputation.

Fast forward…The second opinion agreed with the first so we stuck to our plan – a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy on September 14th.
