I want to thank all of you for the prayers while I was having the mastectomy on Friday.
I had my left breast removed on Friday...everything went great, the lymph nodes came back clean...thanks to all the prayers.... Although.I more then likely will be having Chemo, but no radiation.
I came home on Saturday, and that evening a knock at my door to notify me that my dad passed away in Alabama, I had to drive from chicago to alabama on Sunday to release his body.
Believe it or not, the Crohns is so far very under control.
Between Saturday and Sunday a lady had stolen all of my fathers bank accounts jewlery etc., I now have an attorney in Alabama helping with the criminal chargers, his estate, and my sanity.
I have come back from Alabama a changed person, it all has been a life changing time.
Life is so short to deal with un wanted drama.
Remember this IT is so important,,EVERYDAY TELL YOUR LOVE ONEs YOU LOVE THEM>
If you are distant with someone you care about, Eliminate the distance.
I had not spoke with my dad in almost a year, for one reason or another, but when I picked up his personal belongings from the hopital, I opened his wallet and my picture was right there, everyday when he opened his wallet he thought of me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so thankful for that, It made me realize how much he did love me although he hardly ever spoke those words.
I have lost alot this week, my breast, my father BUT.....I have also gained alot, A new ME....a New understanding of life but most of all, a new understanding of my love for my family and my dearest friends...INCLUDING all of you!
