Surgery day 1/3/13

3 01 2013

It’s evening! Where has my day gone? Whew those meds are good or I am a serious light weight. Well I will have to speak to the doctors tomorrow as I don’t remember anything today. Mitchell said it all went well. I had my surgeon and an obgyn surgeon work together to remove the pelvic lymph nodes on both my right and left side. I only have 5 incisions, less than the 8 I was expecting. I also was seen today by two dermatologists who decided To biopsy some of this crazy rash/welts that continue to spread and itch like crazy. I do have stitches where they did the biopsy so I guess all in all I do have 8 incisions. I am not sure but I think the surgery took about 4 1/2 hours. I’m glad it’s over and look forward to getting back to normal, crazy normal, life.

As for experience here at Barnes Jewish Hospital it has been excellent.

Thanks to Mitchell and Clair for hanging out with me at the hospital. Love you
Thanks sooooo much Susan for stopping by. I am sorry I missed you and I am very grateful for the bag of goodies. This will definitely help me get through this.

Thank you again for all my family and friends, YOU ALL make my journey so much easier. Love you all.

When you think you’ve reached your limit, ask yourself thus:
“can I go just one more step……”

And you always will find that you are able to take just one more step……..

And one more after that…and another after that one….

Keep Going!

Thanks for waking with me.

I am so proud to call you my best friend. You are the strongest person I know. I can only hope that this cancer can see how strong you are and get the heck away from you. Love you Buddy.

I have thought about and prayed for you and your family daily since meeting you last week. We met in the Applebee’s at the hotel the night before your surgery. I am glad to hear that your surgery went well. Your strength amazes and inspires me. I will continue to pray for you and your family and that God will lead you through this journey that you are on.
