I was called this past Monday and told that yes I did have breast cancer. It was not a fun day. I was stuck in the state of numb for quite a few days as my wonderful husband Michael and I periodically emerged from our numbness, long enough to see many, many doctors. And yes, share a few glasses of whatever was around. I have to say that the support of friends, family, and the doctors we have spoken to has been outstanding! I on a regular basis I thank my son Zach for saving my life. It was because of an uncomfortable cyst that he had, that I even went to get the mammogram. I was always too busy or couldn't get a convenient appointment, or was a mom. As a mom, because he needed to go, I decided to support him and go as well. Most of me is glad that I did. The side of me that would rather ignore all things unpleasant, not so much.
As my family and I traverse the hell that is breast cancer I thought that I would share my travails in hopes of helping or reaching someone out there. I will share what is happening with my body, my skin, my family and why I have made the decisions that I have. I will answer any questions that you have and even possibly post some of my own. I will share any new concoctions that I come up with, and if they work offer them to you. I will try to keep my family, and all of you up to date and upbeat. But mostly, I will continue to get what you need to you. Maybe just a bit slower.
So Please have faith, say prayers, be patient and I will see you in Pennsylvania in September.
All my love,
