It’s been a good and bad day.
Good, because one of the last procedures I’ll need for awhile was done and I have a lot more freedom. Yes, the drain is gone. I no longer have a tube and hard plastic stuck into my body. Just an ache where it was.
Bad because the extent of my cancer is wider than we thought, and I have been recommended to see a medical oncologist about starting chemotherapy. This was a nasty surprise given that my surgery went so well and everyone felt they’d ‘gotten’ all of the cancer cells. To be clear, I don’t necessarily still have cancer . . . I just MIGHT have cancer cells spread throughout my body.
Yeah — that makes it better, doesn’t it?
I’m learning not to take anything for granted. There is no certainty. I must simply say ‘yes’ and accept.
Thank you for your continued support. It means a great deal to me. I’ll keep you posted on what all of this means.
