After only 9 months NED my very first ovarian cancer recurrence was confirmed in September. I have no symptoms yet, I don't want any more chemo and PARP trial doesn't start until end November or December; I may or may not qualify depending on the results of pelvic biopsy that has not yet been scheduled. It is getting cold in Canada. Cold and depressing.
I decided that it is the perfect timing to have some fun in the sun. It usually takes me 15 minutes between the idea and its implementation. This morning I booked 1 week all-inclusive resort in Jamaica. By myself. My husband doesn't know yet. He thought that cancer will keep me chained to the radiator. Not bloody likely. Then I got some highlights and a haircut, mani, pedi. Tomorrow I will be getting a semi-permanent henna tattoo over the hysterectomy / tummy-tuck scars. On Saturday after 4 hr flight and 2 hr bus ride I will be swimming in the Caribbean, eating jerk chicken, drinking "Dirty Banana" and "Sex-on-the-Beach" and sampling other fine things Jamaica has to offer. I am not gonna talk, read, write or think about cancer for 7 days.
Ladies, y'all stay healthy! I am coming back Nov. 3rd, hopefully with even tan and some wet, wild and wicked stories.
