Easy Come, Easy Go

Went back for first check up since the surgery - and to get the biopsy results for everything removed.  All lymph nodes were negative, tubes and ovaries negative.  Final tumor stats, Stage 1, Grade 1.  And all gone!

No follow up treatment necessary.  Back for another check up end of November, then gyn exam every 6 months for 3 years.  I can handle that.

Still have to take care for a while longer, not supposed to lift more than 20 pounds for 2 months.  Every day I'm less sore and able to walk longer.  Tummy is still tender so I won't be vacuuming anytime   Hope to walk with the little dog in another couple of weeks.

And just like that...I'm not a member of this club any longer.  How wild is that?

Better Every Day

I feel so much better today!  Even managed to take a little walk up the driveway.  Still have some soreness inside but it's just amazing how fast the healing is going.

Appetite is coming back, enjoyed very delicious lasagne last night, followed by chocolate ice cream.

Got a phone call yesterday from The Diabetes Center...who expressed their desire to help me with my recent diagnosis of Diabetes.  So thoughtful.  I let him down easy...

Short & Sweet

Stayed an extra night, finally home today.  Surgery went very well, no incision (except for the 5 holes gracing my belly) so I am very pleased.  Surprising how much my insides hurt so I'm still fairly doped up.  I will post more when I feel better, hopefully tomorrow.

The Big Day

I'm just about ready to go - have to be at the hospital at 1:20, surgery at 3:20.  I am super hungry...and very clean!  Had to take special decontamination shower last night, and will take another shortly.

Also want to say how grateful I am for all the calls, emails and comments; I have a pretty awesome posse of family and friends.  I very much appreciate each and every one.

If everything goes as expected, I'll be back home tomorrow.  Meanwhile you all have a great day, think positive thoughts!

(Happy Birthday Pam)
