When I wake in the morning,
I want to blow into pieces.
I want more than just ok, more than just ok.
When Im up with the sunrise
I want more than just blue skies.
I want more than just ok, more than just ok.

Im not giving up, giving up, not giving up now.
Im not giving up, giving up, not backing down.

More than fine, more than bent on getting by.
More than fine, more than just ok.

When Im wet with the sunshine.
I want more than just a good time.
I want more than just ok, more than just ok.

Im not giving up, giving up, not giving up now.
Im not giving up, giving up, not selling out.

More than fine, more than bent on getting by.
More than fine, more than just ok.
More than fine, more than bent on getting by.
More than fine, more than just ok.

More than oceans away from the dawn.
More than oceans away from the dawn.
More than oceans away from who we are
More than oceans, more than oceans, yeah.

More than fine, more than bent on getting by.
More than fine, more than just ok.
More than fine, more than bent on getting by.
More than fine, more than just ok.
and this week I am definitely more than fine.  God is Good and he continues to bring me overwhelming peace.  Alot has happend since my last update.  After meeting with the first surgeon, Erik and I decided that I would go and find another Doctor, as this doctor was stressed out and very negative and abrupt personallity. 
So The investigation began,  Both Erik and i looked online for a surgeon then would go and check to see if my insurance would cover it.  Specifically I was looking for a female Surgeon and one that i would connect with.
So Monday I also had my MRI scheduled.  It was an interesting experience.  they had me lay on my stomach on a table.  I was on an incline.  and they told me that i would be in the same position for about an hour.  well as the time passed it got hotter and hotter and my back was aching and my stomach was getting a little queezey.  It was really loud in t here, thankfully they gave me ear plugs cause my ear would have been ringing for sure.  They took over 1000 scans of both my left and right side.  they want to check to see if the calcifications have spread more than the mamagrams showed.  it will take a couple days until we know any more.  the little amount of discomfort i had in the MRI will help us in making the best decision on how to proceed next.
So after the MRI I had to go about 45 miles north from downtown fort worth to Denton, Texas (minneapolis terms like going to St. Cloud from the cities) to go see Dr. Kerri Lyn Perry.

Kerri L. Perry, MD FACS

Diplomate American Board of Surgery, General, Breast and Laparoscopic Surgery 
I have to say she is the fresh perspective i needed.  She is boisterous and very forward-thinking. She took the time to answer any questions we had.  She also felt that a lumpectomy is possible rather than a mastectomy.  She also submitted my blood for genetic testing to see if i am "predispositioned" genetically because of my aunt and grandmother. 

It will take a few weeks before we get the results. Although, I am believing that it will come back negative. Once we know what we are dealing with, we will then make the decision on what type of surgery i will be having and it will be happening in the next few weeks.
All you, my dear friends and family, have been very supportive.  your kind words, prayers and encouragement have been such a great source of strength for me.  words really cannot express how blessed i have been to have each and every one in my life.  God continues to be so good to me!< DIV>
Living life to the Fullest,
Estreitta
