What a difference a year makes

Last night I was scrolling back through my calendar.  It is on google now and I use it to record everything; health, family, work, blog, pets, bills.  Anything I think is important or even mildly relevant I record for prosperity.  One year ago this week I was just finishing up my trip to Chicago to…

We now return you…

...to your normal broadcasting. Yesterday was my five-week post-op check up and I passed with flying colors.  The doctor told me I had the best possible outcome for uterine cancer, Grade one Stage one with no spread beyond the endometrial lining.  We caught this as early as possible and I handled the surgery well.  I…

One Week Post-Op: No Big Deal

Greetings everyone. I was going to post something yesterday but decided to hold out until the one week mark. So, how am I doing? Really well actually.  I continue to have no real pain or other issues.  I was able to handle the stairs without any issue, I moved out of the bedroom after four…

Home From The Hospital

I'm Home and doing well. Thank you, again, for all the well wishes and support.  Husband and I are eternally grateful for all of your kindness. So how it went... Very well actually.  We left home and arrived early at the hospital and I wanted to walk around a bit before checking in to get my…

Day Before Surgery: No Expectations.

Good Morning.  The day is finally here, time for my surgery. Just so you know it is scheduled for tomorrow, January 24 at noon, but I am counting the day-before prep as part of the whole experience.  Husband and I spent the weekend together, it was nice he didn't have overtime this week, went thrifting…

6 Days Pre-Op

I feel like I've been waiting forever... When I think about the fact that I was diagnosed just diagnosed with cancer on December 19, 2016 it feels so difficult to believe.  It was just a month ago tomorrow actually.  Wow.  Only one month when it feels like ages.  I must say again my diagnosis and…

8 Days Pre-Op: Worries

Good Morning. I thought I should give you all an update since I am only eight days before surgery.  I have begun to worry about money.  The fact that I won't be making any while I'm recovering and that even though I have insurance this surgery is going to cost us quite a bit.  Last…

Two Weeks Untill Surgery

Finding meaning in having cancer. One of the things I struggle with as I ride this emotional rollercoaster I find myself on after diagnosis is the question, Why? Why did this happen? Why am I being punished? Why now? Why me? Why? The answer is probably far more complex than I can grasp and yet so…

16 Days Until Surgery

I did not want to go walking today.  It was cold.  I had to warm up the car and clean the frost off the windshield and I have my period.  I wanted to sit on the couch and browse the internet but managed to suck it up and got my ass to the high school…

17 Days Until Surgery

Well, I was right.  Another period started today.  Not sure how bad it will be yet but I'm prepared.  Just think I could have avoided this if I had my surgery last Thursday as planned... I sure am looking forward to the day my uterus and I part ways for this very reason.  I have…
