Nope, I'm getting out of it. Says my Doctor very emphatically.
But not the way I wanted to. I'm going to be otherwise occupied in an OR Suite, maybe I'll have a cute anesthesiologist! :) I need to have another biopsy done as I have DCIS. They now need to also check my lymph nodes and decide on the right treatment for me. Either way it's a tough decision on what to do. I mean, yeah I was planning on a tummy tuck and reduction one day, but not like this...
But then not everything goes to plan. The best thing is this is totally curable. I'll know more after my appointment on Monday. I'm really doing ok, for right now....
But how...how do you tell your son the day after his graduation, that you are having surgery. The time of his life when he should be enjoying his and his friends graduations, his mom is sick. I don't want him to remember this time like that. I am more scared to tell the kids then I am to have any surgery. My daughter is going to be a wreck. Yes, folks I am telling you before them. I know I have great, tough kids, but it's just hard.
They were so great when we told them about hubby. So that's mainly why I'm waiting until after the appointment so I can give them more facts and information as I have a few questions too. I feel bad for Hubby, as he's out of town for a few weeks and is very frustrated he can't be here. But he'll be here for the "big" surgery and I do have my in-laws here and they'll help me out a lot. I'm usually the one helping them so it is weird in that aspect. Yes, I am no good in asking for help. Kinda stubborn that way, and so much like my mother.
My mother, sadly didn't know all the things I know....she didn't get the chance to find it early, but I did. My mom's brother's wife just had a mastectomy last week, and I'm really close with them....but I just can't bring myself to telling them yet.
Well, my friends, sorry to start your week on a bummer note. But thank you so much for letting me share. The best thing you can do for me is just be here for me. I promise not to turn this into a cancer blog, there will be much knitting (sadly not tops or sweaters for a while yet) and pr0n! Now off to knit a bit before bed. :)
