Well, I think I am very blessed as I saw my surgeon on Wednesday and he took the drainage tube out. Then Thursday I saw my oncologist and he informed me since they got all the cancer tumor and being there was no cancer in the lymph nodes that I don't have to take chemo. Instead I will be taking a pill every day for five years. He said it was very unlikely I would get cancer in the other breast too. So we took that as a great sign that the Lord wants me around yet for a bit more. I have to take a bone scan to see how strong my bones are as this medication he prescribed is hard on the bones. If my bones are too fragile then he will give me a different pill. Apparently this pill attacks estrogen and rids it from the body. So it might cause me to have more achy bones but since I was taken off Plavix I am now allowed to take Aleve which sure helps with the arthritis pain. So that is a blessing.
Also my dear daughter who makes jewelry gave me a pretty pendant with a wonderful saying on it. I wore it to my oncologist appointment and I also learned in the past few days how to take a selfie of myself with my phone. I have to keep learning new things to keep my mind active. So that is a blessing that this old gray mare can still learn a thing or two!
And here is the selfie of me wearing it.
I might try and work on some cards again after I am all done with doctor appointments. I just know that I am so blessed to have come through this journey with such wonderful results. All the more reason to keep up with the mammograms ladies. I never expected this to happen after all good mammograms for the past years. But it goes to show that it can occur at any time.
Oh, we had our first snowstorm of the season too. Apparently more is coming for the weekend as well. That did not make me happy as I was hoping winter would not arrive this soon. But I guess it is moisture and we are in such short supply of that so I will call it another blessing instead.
I hope all of you are doing well and avoiding the Covid. It seems to be on the rise all over lately. But I know better days will be coming as far as the pandemic goes. We just need to keep the faith.
And, working with my computer is much better too since we got a new keyboard and a new mouse. I thought perhaps I had a stroke and that I did not have a strong enough touch when I clicked on it as everytime I hit the mouse I got all kinds of pop up windows which never had happened before. But apparently hubby fell asleep too many times in front of the computer and dropped the mouse too many times as my son-in-law said the mouse was cracked. So there I go with more blessings.
Well, I have chewed your ear enough for today. I just got the laundry in and soon I will have to figure out what to fix for lunch. I actually feel like doing more now. Well, what do you know? Another blessing there too.
Take care and God bless all of you,
