Hi twinke twinkle,
I am another young mummy (age 31 with 2 gorgeous girls aged 5 and 1) and was diagnosed in may with same as you, grade 3 with 4 lymph nodes involved. I had a mastectomy, reconstruction, I have had 4 lots of chemo, 2 to go then 5 weeks of radiotherapy. I cried so much at first, why me as I had been through so much heartache already in getting my 2 girls as had several miscarriages. My daughters are my world and all I care about is protecting them and I promise you, you will carry on as normal as possible for your kids. They make me smile every day and my 5 yr old is so much more resilient than I realised. She loves my wigs and so far does not seem to be affected my any of this. I kept the explanation very simple, I told her I had to have strong medicine for my sore booby and it will make my hair fall out. When I had my op, I did tell her I was going on holiday for work as I couldn't bare the thought of her worrying about me if I told her the truth.
It's all doable and you will get through it. Message me if you have any questions.
