7:30am this morning we took our first steps into the Gonda Building at Mayo Clinic. I know that those are the steps that are eventually going to lead to my full recovery. I think that is why I walked in with a smile on my face and in my heart. I met with my Internal Medicine/Breast Specialist Dr. Neal. She sat down with us for a little over 2 hours to explain the process of my journey from diagnosis all the way to being a cancer free women. After a very thorough exam and extensive Q & A session I also had blood work done, a mammogram, an ultrasound, met with a dermatologist, and another visit with Dr. Neal for any questions our inquiring minds may have conjured up during the day. I have a friend that told me that Mayo Clinic was like Disney World for sick people and I definitely see why, you can actually feel the magic in that clinic. It is almost impossible to put into words how extraordinary the care here is. Doctors do not leave the room until you have every answer you were looking for and if they don't have the answer they will find it for you, everyone you run into is eager to help you out in any way they can, and test results are back with in hours... sometimes minutes. I thank God for putting it. on our hearts that this is where we were to be. I am so calm and comforted in knowing that this is part of our Heavenly Fathers divine plan for myself and my family
