    Milestones

    whew....whilst receiving therapies (chemo: eight daily pills, seven days a week, and radiation: five days a week, for six weeks each); waiting out period before surgery; surgery: August 2, 2013, up unto now I haven't had a chance to come here to the site and update. So here it is, I am nearly four weeks from my surgery and I am here to say, I could never had expected such a clean recovery. I did hope and pray and BELIEVE!! Not missing one radiation treatment, nor the scarfing down of any one pill, to the bearing a horrible third degree sunburn between my two sweet derriere, did I let go of my positive attitude. Well perhaps a cry or two, truly. I am here to say that my health care was superb!!! Bay Pine VA Medical Center, St. Petersburg, FL. The Pathology report after surgery came back clean; no cancer cells to be found; none. Hallelujah!!! Three more weeks before I am able to swim for incisions sake. :) then I'm into doing some graceful breast strokes....gotta build back some muscle. Feel good, however tired some parts of days. some sleepless nights. but all in all, i feel great! and love to all those who've had any part of my healing....love to all my doctors, nurses, and aids, housekeeping, techs, visitors, roommate and others who brought me through the nine days in hospital!!!! you are all my heroes. teri bailleres
