mastectomy ::
monday, i'm going to have a,b ,c + d removed.

if all goes well, i'll be in the hospital 3 or 4 days, then recooperating 4 weeks, until 6 weeks of daily radiation begins.

i'm not going to be able to use my right arm/hand for awhile because of the lymph node surgery, but if i'm not too looped from the pain medication, i know i'll be trying to post with my left hand asap.

thank you to everyone who takes a look at my blog + i really appreciate your comments + links. it's been a fun outlet + distraction during chemo + i've met a lot of very nice people.

All the best to you and your family. I hope you're back on your feet soon and getting stronger every day. Take care.

I really enjoy your blog, but hadn't read it lately, and just read today that you are undergoing surgery. I just wanted to send you good thoughts of recovery and health. And all the best to your family also.

hello!
thank you all so much for your well wishes + thoughtful comments + emails!
i don't know what to write.
the surgeon said the surgery went well.
i didn't lose a lot of blood.
this is gross, but i still have drains coming out that empty into big plastic bulbs pinned to the bandages. mod*tot thinks the pink stuff is medicine.

i'm concentrating on mobility in my right shoulder. the nerves in my arm were severed when the lymph nodes were taken out. most of the pain is in my shoulder, under arm to waist + upper arm. it's surprisingly excruciating, but supposed to shrink to a smaller area over time.

i can type, because it doesn't involve the shoulder. mod*tot is calling me.
she is the best! she is so helpful + adorable. last night she asked me, "mommy are you done?" "done with what?" i asked her. she said,"done with cancer"

By Blogger modmom, at 6/28/2006 9:07 AM  

Thanks for the follow up. I had been checking in to see how you were doing.

I sincerely hope your daughter is onto something.

By Blogger Mom101, at 6/28/2006 6:57 PM  

Wishing the best to one stylish mama! You've got lots of people pulling for you, and I am genuinely glad to hear the surgery went well.

Belated good wishes for your speedy recovery!
