We did it Prayer Warriors...We Did It! Yippe Yahoo and Halleluejia!!!
One week post-surgery and I am now recouperating at Miracle House, with Lee, Katie, Julie and a weekend visit from the kids. (peaceful R&R???). I feel like someone beat the snot out of me with a brick. I have one long L-shaped scar on my torso, so as you can imagine, the scabby, tight sutures and soreness of the area limits mobility. But, One step at a time, one stretch at a time, one lap at a time to return to strength and comfort. Heck, I've been through enough surgeries this past year, I know the drill by now!
Kate & I took a stroll around the neighborhood today. I alternated between wheelchair and walking and hoping Katie wasn't going to pull a "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?" on me. That's all I need is to be catapulted out of the wheelchair onto a dog-poop filled New York Sidewalk!!!
My oncologist, Dr. Lo, called me last night and was so happy to hear the news of my successful surgery.
I'll see Dr. Fong Monday for a follow-up and hopefully he will have the pathology on the removed tumors.
I asked the rounding Doctor the other day - "So, does this mean I'm Cancer Free - NED (No Evidence of Disease) and he said the best word ever..."Yes".
I will have a lot of mental and emotioal transitioning to do in addition to my physical rehab. After a year of complete and utter Fear, Sadness, Pain, Confusion, I now need to "live" in a new way I suppose.
So my Prayer Warriors - Rejoice in the MIRACLE you created, I sure will.
