Bald Eagles,Northern Lights (some Corona lite beer too) lol and Bears! OH MY!

WARNING!!! HALF FINISHED BREAST RECONSTRUCTION PHOTO WITH VISIBLE OUTSIDE TUMOR......NO WORRIES IF YOUR A BOOB MAN! LOL LOL LOL LOL! WELL, ACTUALLY A NEW BOOB MADE OUT OF PART OF MY BELLY.....BOOBBELLY MAN??LMAOOOO


 


Computer is back and running.......Yipeeeee!  As promised I wanted to show what a tumor that is visible from the outside of the body looks like...When I first noticed it, I kinda giggled to myself as I showed Dr. Serious that it looked like my body was trying to make it's own new nipple...only off by an inch and a half to the left of where it should be...even Dr. Serious got a kick out of that and laughed hard himself..the nurses are always so surprised that I get him to laugh so often....(Extremely warped sense of Irish humor on my part! LOL)

So boys and girls..yes even men get breast cancer.......check thoroughly for any lumps, bumps, rippling (which is what my new one has), redness, tenderness, you name it..you see a Doctor about it...IMMEDIATELY!!!!  I did and I also did everything my Doctors told me to do and I'm still dealing with cancer. And even though there have been some rough days over this past year, it really and I mean this truly from the bottom of my heart...it hasn't been as bad or as scary as I thought having cancer would be. I have too many other wonderful things to be thankful to let this cancer get me down. I stumble now and then (literally fall down) sometimes that frustrates me to a tear or two, but most of the time I'm back on my feet and ready to start that step all over again.

In my last posting I hoped I thanked all my prayer warriors, my good karma senders, my well wishers, but I forgot to thank all my Chemo Angels....Jeanne I know your trying real hard to get healthy and lose some unwanted weight but I hope you know girlfriend that what all that is nothing but pure heart!.....you are all heart girlfriend!..and I love you for it!  So many of you brighten my day and I appreciate every gift, card and prayer sent my way!  When I finally beat this beast I will pay it forward....we are all on this earth to make it a little easier for the next person in need whether it be a prayer, a card or a really good hug or even time spent chatting...some people just need to talk and have a sincere ear to listen to them....such a simple gift of the heart.

Have a great weekend everyone.....I'm going where the eagles fly, the northern lights put on the best show on earth....now if the 3 baby black bears stop showing up on the caretakers back porch I might just survive this trip...petrified of bears like you wouldn't believe! But I do still giggle when I watch that old 80's movie "The Great Outdoors" with John Candy....Bear! Big Bear! Big, Big Bear! Big bear gonna get me! Big bear gonna eat me!....ROARR!.....I just love that movie!  If the baby bears do come around you can bet I won't be the one trying to get it on film....I'll sacrifice one of the kids maybe! lmaoooooo

Old baldie.  I love that movie too.  Especially the steak eating scene.  Anyway, it sounds very adventursome where you are going.  I hope you have a great time and don't see any bears!  (esp. bald headed and bald butt bears)  The photo was not too graphic - I kinda saw a red spot, but it was competing with a lot of other spots on my dirty screen.  (kids and their fingerprints, you know)  Take care,
Stephanie

Kim,
Yes, our prayers are with you everyday.

I'm ROFL....we have 3 new baby bears in Sunshine this year.  I posted a picture a couple of posts ago.  I know you will be safe around them.

Keep smiling, we all love you.

Just back from a few days in Scotland so catching up on the journals. I am glad that you are having the weekend away. I did laugh with you this morning reading the latest news.  You are a real trooper... You are so  positive and are sure a great help for us all.  Have a wonderful..bear free weekend  Love always  Sybil xx

sdoscher458 said...

Oh be careful that Momma bear isn't around. It would be like sorta meeting you in the woods if someone went for your "babies"...lol. Feisty warrior woman that you are. Glad you are getting away enjoy it to the fullest.  love, Sandi

kirkbyj05 said...

I wouldn't worry about any bears in your vicinity this weekend. You have the strength to send their Momma packing.   If I were there with you I would make sure of it.  I would push you towards her first!   Lol!  Bears!!!  Aah!  What the heck..you'd eat them up and spit 'em out.
Thanks for the informative picture.  I shall watch out for any signs on mine.  
Enjoy the Northern Lights my friend...we are off soon to our grandaughter's Baptism this weekend.   I'm just having a cuppa whilst I turn off my alerts 'til we get back and then we are off.  
Have the 'Best' weekend ever!
Hugs

blpltt said...

You've gotta laugh, Kim.  That's what I found when I had my own little (compared to yours) run-in with with cancer eight years ago.  I had a lot of fun out of it at the time, and still do, with my spongey boob, which travels around my torso, and sometimes ends up, Cyclops style, right in the middle !
Having said all that(and I am still in remission), I must say how truly inspiring your posts are.  I admire you deeply, and send my love and good wishes.

ab45yui said...

Shared your entry with the husband because he is a boob man, lol.  I hope you don't see bears either!  I love them in pictures and that is about it, because I also have such a fear of them after reading so many reader digests articles about bear attacks.  Nope Nope Nope, not interested.  Talking of eagles, some moron in our lil town decided to shoot one and keep its claw as a trophy in his store.  He got caught and was punished with a fine, and took his guns away - no hunting for him.  I think he should of served some jail time too, what an idiot.  Anyhoo, hope you have a great trip!  Praying for you!

As always, I wish you wellness; you are one "BEARY" special person! Hang tough.

fasttrack58 said...

Enjoy your weekend and how can you be afraid of a couple of baby bears, lol.... my brother in law refuses to go camping any more since a baby bear got into our groceries while we were sitting at the picnic table, it was night, we scared that poor bear so much, he's probably still running.....

lanurseprn said...

I am headed for the doctor as soon as I can make an appointment for a spot on my face I think looks suspiciious although other doctor did not think so, I think now I will go to a skin specialist.  My mother's face was covered with skin cancer at one time, but when she stopped going out in the sun as she had been doing, and stayied in doors all the time in her wheelchair she never had any more  I do hope nature puts on an awesome display for you this weekend and little bears do a dance!   Gerry http://journals.aol.com/gehi6/daughters-of-the-shadow-men/
