breathe….just breathe

I can breathe….1 lump 3.5 to 4 cm stage 2 – lumpectomy , maybe node removal depending on what sentinel node shows surgery day.  Tamoxifen   for five years.  I don’t know if I am thrilled about reading the list of side effects however – but what drug doesn’t have a huge list of side effects?

Radiation for 6 weeks, five days a week .

God gave me my birthday present.

I love all of you and these are happy tears of relief flowing down my face.

That  is all for now — I am exhausted.

  1. I must say, you are amazing! You have such a positive attitude. My head would be whirling so much, that I wouldn’t know what to feel.

    Glad you have a good prognosis, but I’m sorry that you have to go through this. It’s life changing.

    God Bless.

    • I don’t know that I am particularly amazing, but while my head does whirl, I have met so many amazing people who buoy me in addition to my loved ones and this is but the beginning of the journey. A friend I used to work with in NYC messaged me tonight – she had my cancer and is ten years out and good. At the end of the day the bottom line is there is too much life left to be lived is all :<} Thanks so much for reading my blog
