I know its been a little over a month since my last blog. Just some things were overwhelming. Quick update on my boyfriend. He is at state prison. We are still waiting for him to be "classified" and sent to his home jail so he can get into a drug program. He will probably be home by Christmas or at least a sober house and he will be able to work. That's ok considering we work together and I'll still get to see him. Now I believe the last time I left off here I was waiting for my doctor appointment to check out the lump I found in my breast. After all the exams, ultrasounds, mammograms and biopsies it was discovered that I do have Stage 1 Grade 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. I spoke to my surgeon last week and surgery is scheduled for May 24th. It's only going to be a lumpectomy. Not only lumpectomy but I'm still pretty positive and I trust God 100%. I'm not going to curl up in a ball and cry. I have cried..slightly but my faith is too strong to not believe all is well. I will find out June 6th how many weeks of radiation
I will be going through and a cancer hormone pill I may have to take for 5 years. Reflecting on this new issue I can't help but say I am still blessed. My boyfriend is in prison, I'm running his company and I have cancer but in all that their are still people out there that have it worse than me. So I pray for them. My family and a few friends know and they are amazing. I get tired easier at the moment, which is annoying. My daughter and grandson told me they are going to make this fun and a positive experience. I have my closest coming over to chill with me before the surgery, I'm walking the 5k for breast cancer with my daughter and her friend, and she got a deck hockey team together for me for Drop the Puck on Cancer in my hometown for March 2024. My grandson is designing the team shirts. I cried because of all the love and support. It's absolutely amazing. I may do reels and walk everyone through the ins and outs. I don't know yet. It may help someone who would go through this to not be so frightened on the procedure. We all know if you Google it the internet can be scary and over exaggerated. This would be a visual so they could see and maybe build their faith in God too. I do take herbs that help fight cancer as I do like to go the holistic route. I may have a long road to recovery in front of me, I don't know, but I am thankful that it was caught early and it can be cured and that I have the most amazing family and friends.
