Cancer Free Me

Well I am excited to share very important life changing events have happened here in the last two weeks! I am bummed that I have not been able to get an updated post on here in two weeks!  I would sit down and try to write something, but my pain and meds would just not let me focus on what I was trying to type.  But now I am coming out of the clouds, and feel like a I am thinking clearer. However, I am not 100% sure my family would agree with that!

I had my bilateral mastectomy on Thrusday, February 14.  Happy Valentine's Day to me!  The surgery went very well. It was a long day as surgery days usually are.  After our one hour drive, Ben and I arrived at Indiana University Hospital at 7:30 am.  Surgery was scheduled for 9:30 am, and they had me ready to go.  I felt like a walking white board for a while as both surgeons made their marks. And as you can see, Ben sent me off with a little heart as well.

Unfortunately, my operating room wasn't ready for me until close to 11:00 am. …

My New Chapter

I just want to take a second and thank everyone for your prayers as I head into surgery tomorrow.  I am having a double mastectomy.  I will give an update as soon as I am feeling better.  I have received so many heartwarming messages from friends and family.  I am so thankful for the wonderful support system around me. Here's to my new chapter!
