    Decision Point (Partial or total hysterectomy??): The doctor sits across the table and looks directly at me. He told me I have to have a hysterectomy, that there is no choice about that. I told him I have mourned the fact that I will only have one child. I can't improve perfection. My little Joshie is an amazing kid. Dr. V told me that if he leaves my ovaries behind that there is a slim chance that the cancer can return. If he takes the ovaries I am at higher risk for osteoporosis and will have to be on a hormone for the rest of my life.
    That is a huge decision. I thought about it for a few minutes and thought..... do I want to come back in 2 years, 10 years, or longer and go through this process of surgery? So I decided to have Dr. V take everything. September 3, 2013 is the magic day.

    Procedure or Surgery (D&C and a Hysteroscpoy): This was surgery was critical for me. I could have started bleeding and died without it.

    Oh No (Cancer at 33 years old?!): The doctor knocked on the door of the exam room. In walks the doctor and her nurse. I knew my life was about to change forever. The doctor took my hands and very softly and caringly said there was cancer. I had shared at length with her how I always wanted a sibling for my 11 year old son..... how I wanted a girl so bad I could taste it. What a sweet doctor I have- she explained that I would never be able to carry anymore children and that a hysterectomy would have to happen. Now I am facing traveling over an hour away for surgery and treatment with a new Gynecological Oncologist.
    I have a lot of living left to do. I AM going to beat this and watch my little boy grow up and have a family. I am going to be right there to babysit my grandkids and spoil them rotten. That is my new goal in life: To live each day like it's my last.
