Yesterday I got a call from a friend who had just found out my "predicament" (sp?). Her message was sincere enough and I love her but.....her tone was as though I was already on my death bed. People....I only have one option....I'm not going anywhere....not anytime soon. While I desperately cling to my family and close friends for support and the want to help during my "down times"....please, please, don't cry and speak as though I only had a week left to go. I've lost a chunk of my boob....and I'm glad!...it means that nasty lump is gone. I've lost a sentinel node...I'm glad...it means the cancer won't drain over to my other lymph nodes. I'm going to lose my hair....I'm glad....I got me one gorgeous wig! My life has slowed down....I'm glad for that too....it was time. I'm still me though....and I'm enjoying life and living....and that's what I'm going to continue to do!
On another note....well regarding the same topic...I took a couple of photos (for my own reference) of the state of my boob....well little miss took my camera and.....saw them. I told her calmly that she shouldn't have taken mommy's camera without asking....and then I asked her if they scared her...."yes"....I told her it looked worse than it was, gave her a big hug and reminded her that I'm going to be just fine.
On an even "other note"....I went to the best sushi place in town today....oh my gosh...I couldn't believe how tasty and how beautiful this food looked....for cheap!!!...I'll definitely be going back to "Sushi Sh*el$ter 101"....D...you gotta go!
