I've had a couple of friends ask for more details about my surgery next Monday. I hadn't posted because...
Here is what I know for sure:
I'm having surgery on Monday. It's at City of Hope. It will be first thing in the morning. I won't find out what time exactly until tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. 
I'm going to have a bilateral (double) mastectomy. 
On my left side, they will take some skin (because I have skin metastases) and all my lymph nodes. No reconstruction, because I will get radiation on that side. I'll be flat on that side.
On my right side, they will be testing the lymph nodes for cancer. If there is cancer, no reconstruction, I'll have radiation on that side too.

This is how I feel:
Pretty much sums it up.
