Surgery?? Ain’t nothin but a thang

Super quick update:

Continuing on our plan to kick cancer’s butt and take names!!

10 hour surgery yesterday was a success! Double mastectomy & Reconstruction went perfectly.
Prayers continue for biopsies of lymphnodes and other breast tissues sent off for review; however, so far, so good! May feel a bit as though I’ve been hit by a mac truck (crazy sore w bruising, etc)…but it’ll get better every day. In fact i’ve already gotten out of bed to walk some laps around the room a few times today.
Most importantly as far as docs could see in surgery, cancer cells have been removed from my body. Wahoooooooooo!!!!!!!! Now that’s something to smile about.

Change is good. Its a beautiful transformation. God’s got this and I’m floating on His grace (& a few pain meds too. Hee hee!).

  2. Just saw this post and realized you are Father Beau’s sister. So sorry you are going through this. I went through same surgery in 2008. I’m sure the surgery is nothing compared to the chemo that it looks like you have gone through. God will definitely bring you through this! How do I find out about Team Buna?

  9. You have no idea how much your strength (and your humility sometimes even more) has inspired me. I wish I had better writing skills to show you the ways in which you’ve lead me through my own fears. Simply put, your grace has helped me prepare for unknown battles that I’ve always feared. I still fear, but watching your journey gives me hope for my own grace under fire.
    You are in my thoughts often.
