Endometrial cancer - grade 1

I am an 81 y/o female who was diagnosed with adenocarcioma of the endometrium - grade 1.  My life expectancy is around 84.

I am wondering if I should have surgery or opt for just radiation instead.  The reason I ask the question is  my age and health history

which is as follows:

(1) Post stroke - 10 years ago. Independent, Still drive,  but use a walker 

(2) COPD - mild  (3) Cataracts  (4) Rectocele  (5) Cystocele  (6) Hypertension  (7) Knees - bone-on-bone,

and now the cancer.

Made My Day

Barnes and Noble had a book blowout sale today and members got 50% off of a selection of books. And, if you buy at least 3 books, you get a free tote. I bought 2 books the other day and I got 4 today so I got the tote (I know I have a problem)! The real highlight of going to the store was that a total stranger gave me a hug. It was so sweet of her to do that, it really made my day. Every once in a while I'll experience a kindness like that and remember how much good there is in the world.

Colds and Unicorns

Bleh, I have a cold. It's not so bad right now, hopefully it doesn't get worse. I just finished The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. She had quite the life. I didn't like it at first but as I read it, I found myself rooting for her more and more. It was a quick read, less than 300 pages. Now on to the next book!

I'm back!

I'm finally back home in NC! I'm in such a better mood now. I want to fully enjoy this week and do things that me happy. Today I went to Barnes and Noble and bought 3 books. It's the happiest place in the world. If I worked there, I'd never come home with a check.

Home Sweet Home

It's so good to be home, I missed it so much. It's sad that I have such a limited time here but I need to make the best of it. I really wish I could stay.

Transplant

So, the doctor suggested transplant. He was my last hope for any other treatment. They typed me for a bone marrow match and it turns out whatever it is they call call it, mine is unique and will likely be difficult to find a 100% match in the donor bank. I found out today that my brother is only a 50% match to me so they started looking in the donor bank. I need all the positive energy I can get because it seems like the universe doesn't like me anymore. I get to go home for a week tomorrow and see my boyfriend. I can't wait spend time with him, it's been so long.

My Cancer Success Story

My fainting episodes started 2 years ago, which I first assumed to be a sign of weakness. I had been busy with work. I was only 29 years old at the time, the idea of getting sick hadn’t even crossed my mind. Why would it, I lived an ideal lifestyle, I ate healthy food, exercised regularly for 2 hours, didn’t smoke or drink, and neither there was a history of a cancer or any other major disease in my family.
