Lucky Me



December 09, 2014 – Comments (8)

I am pretty much healed from my surgery now, except a few bruises on my tummy still.  I guess there is healing still happening, but I am getting around normally now, not super slow and no struggles getting up or gettng out of bed.  I can lift more and I can twist and turn, so in good shape.

 I am very lucky.  My cancer was grade 1, stage 1b, meaning it was slow growing, not very aggressive and contained, although 1b means it was further along that 1a.  I will get some radiation in January and return to work in February.  The odds of this cancer returning are about half the odds of any woman to get breast cancer, so I am more likely to get that then have this return.  So, I am feeling very fortunate.

Interesting, the specialists do not think the symptoms that encouraged me to seek out medical attention were related to my cancer at all, so I am also pretty lucky that something was bothering me and led to my cancer being found.  My tummy was swollen and I have no idea as to what caused that.

Hope your recovery is an omen for the markets.:)

I will continue to pray for your complete recovery, and hope you don't go back to work too soon. Time and rest is the best cure for all that ails us as humans.

Hello old friend.

 I am sorry you have had such challenges over the last six months, but very happy you have not only survived but have a chance to flourish.  Hang in there - I am sending any good karma I may have your way.
