For those of you who visit my blog in the hope of seeing some of my artwork, PLEASE keep coming back - I hope to start creating again real soon.
My hospital appointment last week brought more frustration and "waiting" which I am not good at - this lady loves to feel "in control" of her life and since December when my breast cancer was diagnosed, control of my life is one thing I feel I have lost big time. The appointment turned into just a note taking exercise by the dr; talking about what they will do and when she had a look at the wounds she noticed that my body is rejecting some of the stitches (they are meant to stay inside my body and dissolve). As she is the oncology dr i got referred back over to the breast clinic after my appointment with her. So more on that below lol.
The oncology dr said that she wants to WAIT for another 2 weeks before my second planning appointment where they do the preliminary things before the radiation treatment will start. So I have to heal some more as I am still bruised and wounds not completely healed yet.
THEN radiation treatments probably wont start for another 2-3 weeks after that. Anyways after I had finished with her i went over to the breast clinic to get looked at by one of the surgeon drs over there and she took the stitches out that had broken through the skin. Ouch ouch kind of as most parts are numbish. Then we headed back home - didn't even feel like craft shopping on the way lol.
So once again waiting for things to happen ......
Some days are good, some days are "pity party" days but I am learning to take each day as it comes - and on those pity party days to work through all the emotions and not suppress them. I know one day very soon I will be able to look back on these past months and softly smile and know I conquered it all and have become stronger for the experience.
Until next time - huge thanks to everyone for their prayers, love and support - it means the world to me.
