I am doing really good & healing quite well from both surgeries.
The biggest problem I am having right now is I cannot lift my arms above my shoulders. It seems that everything I want to do I need to lift my arms lol.
There is still some test we are waiting for but the surgeon said they should be back next week. These test will tell us my exact treatment plan since we had some unexpected things show up after the lumpectomy and lymph node removal testing came back.
This could change what happens first in my case but there is lab testing that helps the oncologist decide. They are running the Oncotype DX on my tumor this also tells us the chance of recurrence.
I have a very positive outlook on life and my cancer even though it was IDC which is aggressive cancer but it was caught early. I have an amazing team of Dr’s. who are looking out for me?
My husband Jack is my rock and he has helped me so much since this all started in November.
I am only surrounding myself with those family members and friends who are loving, supportive, positive, and truly care about me. I do not know what I would have done without you all thank you all for being there for me on this journey you are all wonderful.
Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and how fast you react determines the outcome.
Cancer I will beat you and I WILL WIN!
There has been so much going on here since the hurricane I have not had the time to post or read post.
I hope to get back to posting and reading soon.
Often people say things to hurt others and there is no reason for this.
There would be a lot less gossip going on if everyone followed these simple rules.
Yesterday we spent the day with our youngest daughter and her family.
The kids swam in a big pool we bought them screaming like crazy playing sharks, crabs, and dolphins. The baby swam in a plastic tub so he did not get overtaken by the 3 wild sharks.
Our son in law David spent 4+hours trimming on one of our 35+-year-old oak trees. There were some limbs on top of the house that needed to go badly then he started trimming up the rest. If that was not enough he cut the bigger pieces up into smaller pieces for the firepit and the smoker. The old tree looks amazing now with its new haircut.
Jack and Andrew hauled off the rest of the limbs to the burn pile. Andrew is 6 years old and he is quite good at driving the lawnmower and trailer around.
I power washed the landscape rocks around 4 large flower beds and then power washed the sides and front of the house. The back of the house and the back porch will have to be another day. After all this work I required a nap lol. Dragging around a gasoline power washer is tough.
I realized it is time to paint again and since I always pick two new colors I have to start thinking about what color we will do. If the roof was not brown I would pick gray for sure.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, our youngest daughter was making homemade pizza in 2 of my super large sheet pans. There was enough left over pizza to last for days. That will make the kiddos happy.
We are so grateful to have them and their family in our lives they live nearby so that makes it even more special because we get to see the kids often.
We are very appreciative of Davids help he has done so much to help us out through the last 8 years he sees what needs to be done and just does it.
It is very important to always give people credit for the things they do for you.
Be thankful for the people in your life that want to be there and you’ll never miss the ones who aren’t.
In the afternoon the light is more golden than the morning, the pasture of Bahia grass appears to be a bright golden color.
As the wind blows the stalks of grass they seem to move gracefully across the 30 acres.
Everything is quiet and the day is so peaceful as the sun begins to set.
