I know it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted. I put this cancer business out of my mind and enjoyed some time with my family. October was a good month! My little T.J. turned 11!
Thats T.J. he’s officially 11 going on 20! He’s a blessing!
I turned 40! A few years ago my feelings about turning forty would have been different. When I first heard stage 4 I didn’t think I would live to see forty. It feels good to be forty!
Thats my Javiee eating icing off my nose. He’s my treasure! Hey, look at that hair on my head!
Then there was Halloween. T.J. had us out trick or treating for hours.
I have enjoyed this past month with my guys! It’s been so nice to be out of “active” treatment.
I have to say I am so happy with my decision to start reconstruction! My expanders have been filled twice since placement. I want to say I’m up to 320 ccs. The fills were painless and my clothes already fit the way they used to! I’m not going to post pictures every time I have a fill. I’m taking pictures every step of the way and I’ll show the progression with the final product.
Today I have an appointment with my oncologist. I’ve tried not to think about it all week. I’m a little nervous because for the past two months I’ve only been taking tamoxifen. I’m praying the tamoxifen and my diet have kept this cancer at bay. Like the header says, back to reality!
