I say those words but sing it to the song "Born Free" do you know that song? Here's a blast from the past for ya..
I always loved that song...but I digress...
I got my drains out today...so glad too because it was painful (I yelled really loud in the exam room that another nurse came into help, squeaky wheel gets the grease right?) and there's no telling how much more the skin would have secured itself to the tubing by Thursday...i know it's really gross...sorry, but cancer isn't pleasant....I'm having a hot flash while i write this...those haven't seemed to go away either...::sigh::
one more hurdle down though, onward and upwards! (I added the picture of the turtle for that symbol of perseverance...wish the turtle was facing towards the right though...well, i know I'm moving forward and not backwards.)
... friends are still coming to visit me, each one is an angel, and today a dear friend called first and we decided together that she didn't need to come as I was at the doctors and went to lunch with my dad...so i just wanted to rest for the afternoon....what a gift...to offer to not come by...if you are reading this and you are a friend of someone recovering from a cancer surgery, sometimes we need a break and also need to sit with our thoughts...it's ok...it's even healthy for us to sort through our emotions...my dad came back later with the kids which was really nice too...
Tomorrow I get to have dd#2 all to myself after school...she is going to sleep over...she's almost 7 and can help me make an easy supper and we are going to work on her turkey that she needs to do for school...it's a tag board image that we have to glue beans/pasta/rice to....it will be nice to do with just her and no one else...she's excited too. :)
So that's the update...radiation is the next big thing and physical therapy....the saga will continue...but just imagine...a year from now it will all be a memory....yae!
