I’m back in my chair writing again with the computer propped away from my very sore belly… I went to the hospital early Tuesday for surgery and you heard things went well. In fact, I received a voice mail from the surgeon (missed him at the hospital yesterday before I left for home) and in his words, “surgery went great”,…

Well, this will be my last post for a couple days. Surgery is tomorrow early, early morning, so will take all your wonderful thoughts with me. I’ll be staying overnight and not sure when I’ll be able to use a keyboard afterwards. Don’t think they will let me keep my phone. I am going to absolve myself of all typos,…

Had to take a nap this morning. Cold is going away, but it certainly is taking it’s time. Walk time is now when the sun is up and the air has warmed a bit, much to the consternation of the dog. I’m sure it seems to him that he’ll not get out for his daily ‘newspaper read’ aka sniffs and…

The sun is back out this morning and I hope it’s here for most of the day. It will be nice to see dry pavement again. I had a good nights sleep and expect more recovery today. Tuesday surgery is scheduled and will have to go to a liquid diet Monday. Guess it’s one way to drop some weight, although…

Today I woke up for breakfast, but ended up going back to bed for most of the day. Very tired. Ate lunch at 3p in afternoon, but I’m hoping it is the beginning of recovery from this cold. Going to take the dog for a short walk to get out side, but wanted to feel the realization that I’m going…

I can feel the good vibes everyone is sending. Thank you. Today is a much better day. Still raining, but did see a glimpse of sun. Raining again now. I’m trying to fight off a cold so I don’t have to reschedule my surgery. I’ve been sitting at home reading and resting, hard for me to do… I have to…

Miserable today and it’s raining so not sure if I can get the dog out for our walk today. Crampy legs, bad attitude, coughing so I haven’t slept in 2 days, and I could go on and on. Complain, complain, complain. Gratitute went to the other side of the world from me. @#@#$%#$^$%&*(&*)()_()_*(^$%%$%#$@#$@!@#!@#!@$ Thought I would use that line for…

Well since I last filed you in, I’ve notified my parents and brother and sister. They were quietly surprised. It was nice on my end to not have to deal with lots of emotion. I’m trying to stay positive and move on to the future I want that’s cancer free and lots of emotion from those who love you, does…

Well I just got back from my morning gratitude walk and surprise, surprise, I felt great about everything. I know I will beat this. It’s a feeling I have deep inside, not sure I can really explain, other than it’s my true inner self that comes to me in challenging times. After 50+ years, I can say I’ve had a…

I just found out I have “something”. Something that’s precancerous in my non-functional uterus. I had the ovaries removed a couple years ago because I have a history of ovarian cancer in my family, but was totally knocked off guard with this diagnosis! Got a call while on vacation with family and friends that I should schedule an appointment with…
