It’s been a while since I posted. Things have been better in the post chemo world, although I’m learning the side effects don’t go away like a light switch. It’s more like a dimmer switch. Overall though, I’m doing much better and feeling closer to my pre-chemo self.
Tomorrow is my double mastectomy. I’m very anxious but ready for this part to be behind me. I’ll stay in the hospital one night and then be home. My drains will come out in about a week. After that, I’ll start physical therapy.
Soon thereafter I will start radiation – daily for 6 weeks (no weekends). Three months later, reconstruction.
There’s still a lot ahead of me, but after tomorrow, the two scariest (in my mind) will be behind me. Just ready for it to be over, and it will be in a few short hours!
Tomorrow is my dad’s 70th birthday, and he will be spending it at the hospital with me. Happy birthday Dad! Next year we’ll do something more fun!
