out, damn spot!


Today, I am lopsided. I know that most women are slightly but lopsided but this is not slight. It's kind of silly, one regular boob and one porno boob. Yesterday I had surgery to remove my lump. It was low-key and outpatient. Everyone was super nice. Today I am very sore. I have what I consider to be a giant incision and last night I spent some quality time vomiting from my pain meds. But I feel better, a lot better. It's out of my body and the doc says that once she actually saw the lump she was much less concerned. It didn't look like anything to worry about. They will still biopsy, just to be sure, but I already feel better. I feel icky and achy and sore but all better, nonetheless. Apparently I am more resilient than I thought. More optimistic. Who knew surgery could be so cathartic?

Hurray! You are incredible. I had to have a breast tumor removed when I was pregnant with my oldest. A very scary and vulnerable time. We had been married all of four months. Nice. I still have a lovely and very large incision. It was not a small tumor. I am so grateful that step is over and you are doing better. Still thinking of you...and praying for you. Take care!

Love you so much sweetie, You are very brave to be so open about such a difficult thing. I am very impressed at how candid you have been. I feel like i have been a butterfly(regular ones are too yucky)on your shoulder going through this via blog. I even saw you upchucking, poor baby. Keep on, you are on the downhill side. You are a great example of just doing what cha gotta do.

Love, Mom
