Hello dear friends. I must first apologize for not getting on this site in a long while. Even so, you have been in my thoughts - especially Linda. I am saddened by her news.
Since I last visited, I finsihed chemo, got a divorce, started writing a book, and bought a new house. My battle with cancer however did not stop. Almost a year to the day of my initial diagnosis, last November I found a lump in my left breast (my right breast had been removed a year earlier). I went through worries and tests and it was nothing. In March, it happened again. I had to make the decision to remove my breast. June 13, of this year I had my breast removed. I had tissue expanders put in, and that hasn't been a walk in the park. They are painful at first! The pain got so bad that I literally could not get myself out of bed; a friend had to help me. I think I only have one more office visit before setting the next surgery date. I just can't wait for all of this to be over.
I will keep you updated.
