I am a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a neice, an aunt and a friend. I never thought I would hear the words "It's not good. There are cancer cells". December 8, 2010 changed my life forever. This is my scary, long, enlightening journey through breast cancer. I hope that my words help others facing a similar situation or those that love someone going through breast cancer. I don't know where the road in front of me leads, but I know that Breast Cancer won't define me.

I just made new curtains, what is wrong with me???
So my surgery is tomorrow and I have tried to say busy all day. So I got home this afternoon and decided to sew new curtains for my bedroom. Here I sit in my freshly painted bedroom with my beautiful, new curtains I just finished! When I told my sister in law I was going to sew curtains today she said "you are something, really". I responded with "I am a bit crazy, maybe neurotic". We laughed. What is wrong with me? I am having major surgery tomorrow and I am sewing curtains....I guess I just thought I would find comfort having a newly decorated room for my recovery. Now I plan to do some online retail therapy to order new sheets, slip cover for my chair/ottoman and some wall sconces with candles. I am an artist so I will be designing some fabulous art for the walls during my recovery (I do graphic art prints). I guess stress and anxiety manifests itself in so many ways. At least I have a nice new paint job in my bedroom and beautiful new custom curtains to enjoy in the coming weeks while I get better! Call me crazy.........

Praying for you.ReplyDelete
My Sentinel node biopsy and lumpectomy are tomorrow. I have a wide range of emotions and I simply cannot imagine yours.
I'm pretty sure that chemo will be a part of my treatment - ER+, PR+ and HER2+. It may as well be a done deal based upon all I have read.
Praying, praying, praying...for both physical and emotional healing for you and your family.
