What a Difference a Couple Pints Make!

What a Difference a Couple Pints Make!

I don’t know why, but I’m always amazed at the way warrior prayers get answered. Thank you! I was able to get my transfusion on time, and that two pints of blood made a huge difference. One day I was winded from walking from one end of my house to the other, and the next day I could walk around the block with no trouble.  I’ve continued to get stronger every day.

The next hurdle was my mammogram/ultrasound. I’ll spare you the belaboring details, but suffice it to say that it was both eye-rolling and hilarious when the doctors were freaking out because they couldn’t find any signs of the cancerous tumors in my body. It was eye-rolling because they were using the wrong films; hilarious because, in the midst of their hand wringing over the inability to find the tumors, they failed to recognize the wonderful part–there was nothing there! I know that you have to be cancer free for five years before you are truly considered cancer free, but still. The chemo worked. Thank God. Thanks, Dr. Swart. Good job.

The other issue I was concerned about was my upcoming mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. According to the insurance authorization, I was going to come out of surgery a bit lopsided. They had only authorized the right breast to be attended to. Thankfully, that has been worked out and I’m all set for early March.

Now, all I have to do is take the rest of the month to rest, build up my strength and immune system, and get the poison out of my body. I have an appointment with an ND who specializes in breast cancer treatment this week. I’ll be sure to share anything enlightening I find out from him. I’m so looking forward to the detox. I’ll certainly update you on my surgery when the time comes, and if I have that ‘Ta-Ta to the Ta-Tas’ party I’m contemplating, you know I’ll post pictures of the fun.

Loving this quiet part of the journey,
