Congrats to all who are coming to an end of Chemo etc.. I kinda get it.. but not really until I walk in those shoes too.
my dearest oldest friend in in her double reconstruction phase. I'm still blown away that we both have BC.. geesh. we've been bestest friends for 45 yrs!! who would've thought!
I have to say a HUGE thanks to you all & others on other discussion threads. It's support in numbers right? What we cannot do alone we can do together? I only hope I can be a help to others as well.
Thanks borntosurvive!! We all are doing what we can on this earth I suppose. this C makes me so angry, as it's put a stop/hold to what was up & coming, new foster youths and/or adults with disabilities. I'm so flippin mad. my youth ages out in August. and I live in a house that needs more than me living in it. lol
I'm so lucky I have my bio-dad (78) staying with me from Penticton. I cared for him all last summer through a quad-by-pass, I've girlfriends that will stop in. my eldest daughter has 4mth old twins & other daughter 2 young ones too.. both live 30-45mins away.. so lousy they can't help me too much.
I'm so thankful for all the info on the bras/camosols etc...because I feel sooooooooo lost!! I'm overweight, thus bigger breasted, so it'll be noticeable. I'm not sure how I'll be with that. I'm starting to break down.. and thank goodness some of you can relate that even at the 11th hour.. it's still not quite sunk in! I'm not focusing on reconstruction right now, as we have to see how I do with my lungs with this surgery first. I hope I can though. Cheaper in the long run...lol..
I'm only supposed to be in hospital for 2 days. No I've not yet read threads about what to expect afterwards, or what to wear, will go check that out now. I'm so blasted busy, major last minute glitches.. stressful, but am trying my hardest to just shrug.
& apologies to you all, usually I'm quick with replying to posts etc.. but just a little over the top busy. (also working at opening a restaurant for my cousin.. somehow I became in charge.. thank goodness for skype for after surgery)
ps,... i'm going to get my (i love my hair.. who doesn't).. cut short later today.. so I don't have to fuss with it too much.. uggggg :(
