I had my first post cancer normal day yesterday and it felt WONDERFUL! My family, friends and myself went to see my Rachel perform in a local end of summer bash talent show.......she did very well in her performance, but didn't place this year...........we are both just fine with that, she did her best and so did the others in her age group and even though the young man that finished 3rd should of took 1st place..he was AWESOME....but hey the judges are human and each of their own set of standards on what was trophy worthy and what wasn't and I'm a firm believer that loosing sometimes helps in building strong character!
The afternoon and well into the night.....almost midnight was spent at the lake for the seasons final party pig roast! I got a chance to see people that had only heard about my new journey in life (cancer) but hadn't had the chance to see how well I am actually doing with dealing with it all.........I got to laugh, see friendly faces, smile at observing other people's quiet moments, did a little 'chair dancing' got a lot of great hugs! I needed yesterday.............I really needed yesterday!
Today will be spent regaining the strength that I used up all day yesterday and getting reading for the rest of this week.......Wednesday back to the Oncologist to find out my treatment plan, Thursday back to the plastic surgeon to remove more fluid build up in the new perky boob! lol and Friday back to see the regular surgeon for a follow up visit! Not sure I'm liking this weekly schedule of doctor visits, but hey........I've got a lot of living to do still and I want to be around to do it!
I think I'm almost ready to post the pics that I took of the new boob post op.....I keep going back and forth about doing it for the sake of helping others to become more aware of breast cancer and treatment options to wanting to keep some of what's going on in my life just between my family and close friends. I'll have to play that by ear and see where my head is at after some more time has past.
Life is good and I am thankful.........for every breath, every dancing butterfly and every smile that is flashed my way!
