We're back from Naples, FL, a.k.a., dream land! MIL was wonderful. I didn't lift or wash a single dish while I was there. I was seated in the most comfortable chair in the house, played with ice packs, looked out at the Gulf of Mexico, and did some REAL TIME healing! I am feeling SO much better today compared to when we left less than a week ago.
My eating? Well, it wasn't great but it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Remember, I was at my MIL's who happens to be one of the best cooks in the world. She honestly doesn't understand that dessert does not need to be served twice a day. Yeah, I gotta admit at times I love that woman!
So my surgery part of this journey is coming to an end! Thank goodness! I am ready to move forward. The next phase is chemo. I begin it tomorrow with an "education" seminar at the hospital. Then it's echo-cardiogram time. If I pass all the test proving that I am healthy enough to become VERY sick, then on Monday, 12/9, I will have my first "infusion". Amazing. They are giving me test to see if I am healthy enough to make me sick. Things that make you go "hmmmm". On Saturday, 12/14, (if I am healthy enough to have the infusion) I will have my head shaved. On 12/16, I attend a seminar held by Estee Lauder called "Feel Good, Look Good". I have every intention of having a picture of my bald self taken. Keep checking back for a peek
Today, however, I will enjoy! I have a tea room date with three of the nicest ladies in the world. Tonight, it's dinner and a show with DH. I believe I will concentrate on just today!
