Hi everyone, after much deliberation and prayer, I opted to do surgery. I have 6 tumors, all operable, according to my doctor in CA. Date is set for August 31st. I fly to Seattle on the 25th, drop off my son at uni and then off to CA to surgery. I am at peace about the whole thing, but was pretty much a mess for a couple weeks. My doctor will have a chemo essay done, and chemo will be decided then. Just crossing my fingers that it is something I can get here in Japan, so I can come home and do surgery here. If not, we will cross that bridge when we come to it.
Meanwhile, I am enjoying pool time with my kids and all the wonderful summer celebrations Japan is good at. We will drive to the country side today to see the most amazing fireworks show ever. It takes place in a valley between two mountains and the sounds echo off the mountain, so that you actually can FEEL the sound. So cool.
I hope all of you are doing what you can to enjoy this summer season, whereever you are.
Hugs all around,
