One Year Ago Today . . .

I was waiting to hear about whether or not I could go on Tykerb/Xeloda and I was waiting to hear the results of the CT scan that I had either that day or the day before. The title of the post was "Waiting Again. . ."

Things are certainly a lot more positive than they were a year ago. There were a lot of unknowns about my treatment and whether or not it would all work. But it has worked. It's been a long road, but the treatments have worked and I finally have boobs again.

It's just a matter of recovering from this surgery. Scott asked me this morning if I planned to do any work. I said, "not today. It's my intention to take it easy for the rest of the week." I'm still feeling a little light-headed and this sense of dizziness seems worse when I try to read or work on the computer. So . . . I'm gonna watch a movie. My friend, Josh, lent me their copy of Amadeus about 8 months ago, so I think I'll finally watch it! It's better than listening to all this over-saturation in the news of the octuplets. I'm reminded, now, why I rarely watch the news on TV. They go over and over and over the same story with maybe a small change each time. I'd rather read about stuff once it's over and done with . . .

Have a great day!

Hi Pat,
Thank you for your well wishes! I really hope you're doing well, too. Thanks for continuing to read the blog . . . it means a lot to me!

And, Carver, yes, I am trying to give myself time to recover. It's hard, though. I'm starting to get those thoughts of, "well, I guess I should pay those bills" or "I need to go to the bank", etc. I think someone's gonna have to sit on me to keep me still! I appreciate all your thoughts and visits.

Hi Theresa,
Thanks for visiting and sending me good thoughts. I really appreciate them!

I feel really blessed to have so many people wishing me well. I'm sure that it has helped in my recovery!
