OUT with the crap, IN with the new!
February 2, 2015. I got that date today. The date that I am going into the operating room and coming out with new boobs and no ovaries. Finally. The window is here. The surgeons will be working together so I don’t have to go under anesthesia too many times. Now, I just have to make it to that date. I have to get through this cold and flu season without any hiccups or hospital stays. So, no offense, but if you are sick…I will see you in the Spring.
Things have been pretty “normal” around here. Our life is like everyone else’s except I have chemotherapy every 3 weeks. It takes me down a notch for a day and then I am back in the game, all good. I just need to maintain this until my surgery. I completely embrace my life and the control that I have right now. Some people may think otherwise because I need to be on treatment for the rest of my life. But, truth be told, I am the captain of this ship and I am in complete control. I will never back down or give in to cancer. I KNOW that there is no cure for my cancer, but I truly believe that everyday I can do something to kill even just one cancer cell. I am not looking for a miracle cure, I am a realist. But, I will be damned if I am going to let Cancer run the show.
I’ve got so many new goals that I have made for myself and my family and I am very excited. Granted, they are not the same long term goals I once had but I have a lot to be grateful and thankful for this year and I intend on making this the best year yet.
I had to share this news, but I am tired now so I will post more detailed information in the next week about everything that is going down over here. Stay tuned for the details…
Everyone should have something to be thankful for and I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, I feel very blessed with all the thoughts and prayers and my family is extra thankful this year!
Love, Love, Love.
