    I'm not sure if this is the right place on the site to do this..but I wanted to thank all of you for your support.

    I had a lumpectomy yesterday and want to thank the wonderful thoughts and prayers sent to me by everyone on this site. I came through well and have no pain or side effects as of today. I wasn't scared about surgery...I was scared to know that the surgery would make this whole nightmare a reality, not just something you talk about. Today I start my journey to kick this monster's a*&!!

      You can do it! I have a little sign near my computer that helps me everyday. It says,
      "I have cancer, cancer does not have me"

      yay! this is a community, so don't worry about the 'right place'. So happy the surgery went well. yes, it's kind of ironic the surgery (at least for b/c) is often the least issue. it's what follows the surgery (treatment) that can be the hardest. and learning a 'new normal'. it sounds trite, but it works - take one day at a time and don't focus on the "what ifs"

      Believe it or not there is a lot of positive energy eschewed when you are diagnosed with breast cancer. People who you hardly know (such as the people on this site) come to your defenses immediately whether it is to offer advice, or just to share their experiences. I've always believed that experience is the best teacher. And I was brought up to believe that it is never too late to say thank you. The people I have met, whether it was the nurses who administered my chemo, the nursing staff who took care of me when I had to be hospitalized during chemo treatment, the friends who brought food to my house, the friends who just sat by my bedside just to talk, or my husband who became my caregiver, will always be my "heroes". No words can convey my thanks to each and every one of them.
