A new week has begun

Last week was a chaotic and sad week.  Losing Lucky left a void in all of us, but we are healing.  Whenever I think about her, I picture her running and catching tennis balls with Jesus and it heals me more.  Jason has been asking more and more where she is.  I tell him in Heaven with God but he hasn't quite accepte my answer. Laura is doing quite well.  Her busy schedule has helped her.

Tomorrow Jeff is taking me to the cardiologist. Why? In my previous surgery, my heart rate has gone up a lot! They don't know why, and since my next surgery is three hours - they want to make sure I'll be okay.

Good news! I do not have a gene that means I'll get cancer again or am at high risk. So, that is a huge weight off of us.

I decided on a bi lateral mastectomy. Big news, I know.  I decided on it because getting mammograms and breast MRI aren't easy at all for me.  I'm young now and can heal a lot quicker.  I also have an awesome support team to help with the kids.  So, now is the time to do it! 

This week is new and full of opportunity!

  1. I'm glad your gene test turned out in your favor. I'm waiting to find out when or if I'll be getting tested.
