Ready or not….ready, set, going, going, gone!

Well today the world was spinning so fast I am thoroughly dizzy. My life is always like a three-ring-circus, but it was a day of slightly controlled chaos. After about 2 weeks of trying to get a ‘good’ surgery date out of both surgeons’ offices, I get the call. The date is…next Wednesday. Holy shitballs! A week away?!?! I’m thankful the surgery is happening in May, so that we can take our family vacation, the kids won’t be penalized for another one of my health issues, and I’ll have the post-surgical support I need, but a week away? They couldn’t have given me an extra week of notice? Jeez. So now, in one week’s time, I have to have all the pre-op testing that normally occurs in 2-3 weeks is going to happen in a few day’s time.

In addition, sadly, my step-mother’s father passed away and I can’t go down for the funeral because I still can’t fly. I feel like I’m on some stupid no-fly list. At this rate, I may be 50 before I can fly again! I want to be supportive of everyone in my family that has serious things going on too, but I don’t have enough of me going on 😦 Just know I love you all!

So, I’m making lists because my blonde, hit-way-too-many-on-the-head this year brain can’t remember shit & I need to get everything done before I get sliced & diced next week. Everyone knows how those lists go, they get added to, and you never reach the end!

    Hi. I’m just getting back to normal (?) after my surgery, almost 2 weeks ago. I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you after your post. Amanda did tell me while we were away, but then I went right into pre-op mode. My surgery was relatively easy, just replacing the tissue expander with an implant, but I still find sleeping easier with a pill. I start physical therapy again on Tuesday. I had that for a couple of months before to help with flexibility and strength. It really has helped.
    I really think you have made the right decsion, to be pro-active and have the double mastectomy. There is no point in having to worry about anything extra. I know that your surgery can be painful with the abdominal incision, but in the long run you will be better off. Please know that we will be thinking of you, and praying for you. Please have your dad or Julie keep us informed. Brad will have plenty to do.
    You are strong and you will be fine. All our best.
