to me that I have not updated whats going on. This friend has held my hand through the tough times and he is right..an update is needed. So, I was at the hospital last week, I had 7 surgeries at once on sept 23, 2013 which I am still healing from. 10 hours of surgery, with so many specialists teams leaves a few points of healing to contend with. I have had amazing nurses and home care since..bless their hearts.
I was back at hospital last week and am told I need 6 weeks of chemo and radiation. The radiation would be daily with 3 points of hits and chemo once a week. A cocktail of taxol and carboplatin. Foreign to me but okay..one more beating to stand up to..I got this. When asked if we could wait till after Christmas I got a definite "no" and mistakenly said that to my son of 20..no Christmas this year. In hind site, I fully intend to celebrate Christmas so tomorrow I will put up the tree and everyday I will ad 1 more thing to make our home feel like Christmas. I am told I will be very sick..week ..but an angel of a friend told me she is sending in her angels to watch over me and I feel safe. Lady Juna..I thank you so much for reaching out to me with love. So, now I need to show my son, when the times are really tough, what I am made of...sugar spice and Christmas and kicking cancer butt. My treatments are being prepared this week....so by next week it is game on. I have decided that I can do this so the positive vibes will set the stage. I know it will be rough but I am determined and I have an amazing family for support and friends like you guys who have come to mean so much. A few words touches a heart and my cup runnith over from all of you dear people. Winter in moving in to Montreal and it is a time of festive celebrations. My mom survived breast cancer..God Bless..and I intend to make her proud and survive my cancer. All your kind words and well wishes really mean so much. I carry them in my heart and in some case ever so special in my hand. Do not worry for me, be happy I got the chance to fight this..so many do not. I pray for them. I did want to mention that for a second...it's funny how we rivive our faith when in a corner although I've had mine prior to..it takes on a different meaning in these times. Almost like God decided to give me a hand for which I am so grateful. Truly, brings a peace to my heart. Okay so now it's time to stop ranting..all is updated. I share these truths because I know there is one out there going through the same thing..I am here for you..you are not a stranger. Reach out me..note me..let me know how I can help.
Love you all so much. Your art..your magic...you
Shelley Be well and I send a huge hug
