Surgery went well however it has taken me longer than I thought to feel better. It will be 2 weeks tomorrow and I am finally able to lift my arms long enough to get onto the computer and type. I had to just turn off the computer because I was too weak to read or answer emails or even post here on the blog. It really sucks not being able to lift and reach!!! I had to have 2 teeth pulled before surgery as they finally CRACKED. On Friday, before my surgery my front tooth finally cracked in half and now I look like a hillbilly and so I will have to have that pulled, hopefully this week. I tell ya, chemo SUCKS!!!
After surgery, I came home and by Thursday, Maddi had strep throat and tonsillitis. NOT FUN.....she was home sick for 6 days in which that time we had a HUGE ICE STORM that left us without power for 28 hours. AND....in the process, left me and Maddi here by ourselves because Bob had to work and we started flooding in the basement and back porch. It was everything I had to lay down towels and keep the water at bay all the while that I was only 7 days post op and I was doing all of this by myself with no power.
Everything is fine now and I am glad the last 2 weeks are OVER!!!
On a POSITIVE NOTE, look at how much my hair has grown since my last chemo treatment.....just 8 weeks ago. Hopefully by summer I will have hair long enough that I can go without wearing a hat or wig.
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO SENT HATS, I am still wearing them and enjoying them!!! (and yes, I promise I will get pictures of them posted soon)
So, I have this airline ticket I need to use otherwise I lose it and WE CAN'T HAVE THAT.....so, I have my flight booked and will be in ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (Lake Elsinore) Jan 10th thru the 16th.
I AM BEYOND EXCITED and I cannot wait!!!
Anna is working out the details but we would like to meet anyone who is close to Temecula some day while I am there for lunch. ANYONE INTERESTED??? It will be a FUN TIME HAD BY ALL!!!
And on that totally fun and positive note....I wish all of you a HAPPY HAPPY NEW WEEK!!! Christmas will be here before we know it....
All my Love, Amy

Well, tomorrow is the 2nd phase of my breast cancer surgery. I am actually VERY SCARED....and it didn't help that on Friday the movie AWAKE came out and now they are talking about it all over the news. I have always been scared to be put under, I am afraid I won't wake up. So, please, if you find the time, say a prayer for me that I won't get all hysterical like I do and that I go thru the surgery with flying colors. I would love to come home tomorrow evening and not have to spend the night in the hospital so we will see. I am having my expander's taken out and having the saline implants put in along with having them build nipples. (I FEEL LIKE THE BIONIC WOMAN!!!) WE WILL BUILD YOUR BREASTS!!! LOL
The surgery will take 2 and a half hours and I have to be there at 6am in the morning. My surgery begins at 7:30am and goes until 10:00am. So there you have it. I will of course let you know how it all turns out.
