Today was a long day! Left Ocean county at 7:30 am, and returned at 8:30 pm.
While sitting in the reconstructive surgeon's office today (whom I love, by the way), I read this on the wall:
"Peace - it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." WOW, that about sums it up for me. I strive for peace amidst the battlefield.
The appointment with the surgeon went great. I am very comfortable with her. Well, as comfortable as is possible for someone who was talking to me about dismantling and rebuilding my body parts. This afternoon was the pet scan. If that goes well, surgery is set for June 20th.
Please continue the prayers. They help!
I am just dreaming of the day when I can wear my survivor shirt. To quote one of my special suvivor mentors: "I have cancer, but cancer doesn't have me!" I am gearing up for battle folks. I hear my grandfather whistling the battle hymn of the republic somewhere in my mind... Warrior up!
