    Really was jealous of Greg

    Got off the phone with my surgeon a bit ago. Blobby the mass is a recurrence of the endometrial cancer. Da mn it! Still processing. I'm off to make follow ups with my surgeons and call my chemo guy. You've heard of Love in the Time of Cholera? Now we have Cancer in the Time of Pandemic.

      Well, that took a left turn. Hopefully it will be a smooth and easy treatment process!

      Oh, that's so disappointing! Actually devastating. I'm so sorry, BuckeyeShelby. Such a hard thing to process. My heart goes out to you.

      Oh no!!! I am so, so, SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry to read this, @BuckeyeShelby. In fact, I can't help it, but my eyes got teary when I read it.

      I hope it does not offend you for me to pray for you ... I won't if it does ... in the meantime, I'm holding you in my thoughts and crossing fingers and toes.

      Big hugs.

      How's the wound healing? I wish I was closer to be able to help, if you needed any. it sounds like you have your hands full about right now.

      LWC, of course I appreciate your prayers. Good energy is good energy, whether it's raised in a circle or the act of praying. The way I like to look at it is those of us who are of the light all ultimately are heading for the same place, to be with the divine, we just take different paths to get there.

      I really can't see the wound. It's under black foam with the wound vac. Home health comes to deal with it.

      Thanks for well wishes, CC and KP. Never expected to be starting this battle in the middle of a pandemic.

      Well, that just sucks, again, I continue to say that "cancer sucks". There are harsher words to say about it, but for here that's about as strong as I can get here. I hope you're team comes up with a great treatment plan.

      @BuckeyeShelby, well I am so sorry to see this news. I wish it had been better news for you dear. At least now you know and can kick things into action. Just follow Greg's lead in being proactive and taking care of yourself as much as you can. As LWC said, I would like to offer prayers for you. A few prayers and well wishes certainly never hurt anyone.
      You know we are all here if you need to process "out loud."
      I have my first oncology follow-up in person appointment next week. Then I have another follow up with my surgeon the following week just to make sure I am healing well. I think I am. It's hard to believe I am now almost 8 months into this journey. I would be lying if I said I didn't feel a little apprehensive.
      Again Shelby, I will be praying for you a LOT. Keep us posted as you feel up to it.

      You guys are great! That's why I'm still here, paying forward for the early days when I needed lots of handholding. Now, let's hold each others' hands!

      It has been a bit since I have checked in. Sorry to see this post. When I first checked in in 2013 you were always such a friendly and welcoming voice. Hate to see a recurrence. That is the fear we always carry. I have good feelings about you thriving soon. This is just another bump in the road. You seem to handle everything with such grace. Sending good thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.

      I have watched your posts through the years too Shelby, I think we started around the same time years ago. I too am facing a recurrence and while my cancer is a different type, I'm sure we are probably sharing many of the same emotions right now. I would list a bunch of mine but the censor here would probably blow a fuse. I wish you the very best in getting through yours again!

      I'm so sorry. I can't imagine going that many years happy that you've beaten it and then have it come back. I hope you kick it's butt this time for good!

      I managed to drop my wound vac on myself, hit my drain, knocked the scab off it, and started oozing. In short, I'm an idiot. I did call my home health hotline, and since it wasn't bleeding she told me just let my nurse know tomorrow. Otherwise, not bad today. Sigh...

      @BuckeyeShelby - you're not an idiot ... but OUCH!!! I'm glad it wasn't bleeding and I hope by now the nurse has been there to check on it and get everything back to how it needs to be.

      I am tremendously saddened to read about your recurrence. Blobby has apparently forgotten who it’s dealing with. You have been a cornerstone to this site. I believe you were part of the welcoming committee when I first joined the WhatNext community in 2013. Through the years you have advised, cheered, and sympathized with numerous WhatNexters, myself included. I say time to roll up your sleeves and give Bloppy another lesson in survival and kick it’s xxx to the curb. Sending a hug and dump trucks of support.
