    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    "when you go through cancer, it is not just you that is going through cancer - it is your family, it's your fiends. It's all your loved ones. They are going through it right with me." - Jill (last name unknown.) For me and those really close to me, living with getting news yet getting little direct information has been so hard. Hours seem like days, days like years and so on while I sit waiting for what to do or say next. This last week has been excruciating I think. My friend DeAnna tells me this time is the hardest time since it is easy for your head go to dark places, fear can take over and skyrocket into anxiety and even phyical illness. I know it is super important to stay positive and the logical side of me does, but there is no rest for ones subconscious mind and the feeling of where I am today is so surreal. Dealing with my own fears and feelings is one thing. Dealing with the fears and feelings of others is also so hard. I am a mom and moms care for their children and others. Unbarable at times.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    Reports indicate that they got all the CA with the surgery and I do not need Chemo or radiation at this point. My doctor said the odds of re-occurance or spread is less than 1%, so I feel like I dodged a bullet. Will now just focus on continuing to heal from my surgery which has been tough in some ways - and just working on ways to deal with the menopause symptoms. Thanks to all who have supported my questions and provided feedback, love and prayers.
