Best Fight

I have surgery tomorrow, to get the mediport. That was a shocker, and, as Bush Babe and Jeanie would put it, 'it made my wheels wobble'. I hadn't expected it, not so soon anyways. I have an appointment for a pet scan on Tuesday to see if the cancer has spread, or metastisized anywhere else. Chemo begins on the 20th. Radiation on the 27th.
************************
I imagine that there will be plenty of unimaginables. I imagine that I best 'buck up'. It's time to fight my best fight.

Debby! The good thing is, things are moving along very quickly as they should. No more waiting 2 weeks to see a Dr, 6 weeks for a diagnosis and 6 weeks for surgery. It's the old slam bam thank you m'am (speaking of "mams") now. Which is spectacular. The downside is you are on an emotional rollercoaster that won't let you off for 5 minutes so you can get your brain readjusted everything that is comming at you. Hang in there and fight your best fight! We're counting on you, behind you and praying up a storm for you!

Good heavens! That's a lot of surgery!
This is all unimaginable. I'm just blown away that all this has happened in essentially one week.
We'll be here for you.

Musewings - very funny. Mams! Dear me... that's something an Aussie would say!

Deb - the wheels may have wobbled a bit, but you have handed the wheel over to your medical crew. Bound to happen for a sec. Your job now is to hang onto that saddle horn and ride that wild bronc, girlfriend. (Cause you can never have too many metaphors!) What needs to be done is being done. Good. Not fun. But good. With you (but you already knew that).

Hugs

You fight the bastard. Give it a kick in the bollocks (English word for testicles) for me.

I once asked a man from Sydney about bollocks and embarrassed myself to death. I thought that it meant foolishness. Never fails to amaze me. I speak English and so do you, and so do those Oz people...and it's all different!

The rest of you: being the master of all bad puns (Well. Okay, not all, but certainly my fair share) I did find myself singing "Mammeries....of the way we were...."

I'm off to bed. I'm sure that things will seem better after a good night's sleep. Thanks.

Wow. They aren't wasting any time on this, are they? Hang in there, girl. :)

I guess it's going to be a bumpy ride. We'll just have to put on our seat belts. Because we're all right there with you.

You kill me, Debby - love that sense of humour.

Debby said...

Hm. Well that's embarrassing. I mispelled mammary...

The wheels may wobble but they are still on and working.

You are already so far ahead of so many people in getting ready for this fight. Your sense of humor, wonderful family support and attitude will serve you well at this difficult time.

Hey, "Rocky"...you ain't going in the ring alone. Lace up your gloves and I've no doubt you'll emerge the victor....
