Ninety-five percent chance of living five years

So, we went in. I took my husband with me that time, and the doctor said "Well, you have 95% percent chance of living five years." Nothing to worry about. But I felt well, that's just his way of saying things. And so we scheduled the surgery for the 14th of May and they did a lumpectomy and they took, I think, seven nodes and there were not involved, so I had stage one cancer.
