Recovery is a Wonderful Thing

...*Philippians 4:13 "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength."*

Depending on how you look at it...

I have drain tubes sticking out of three places... which means my body is cooperating by getting rid of the bad stuff and preparing myself for when I will take over and proccess this on the inside of my body.

I hurt terribly when I have a BM... (TMI, yet?) which means my body recognizes that I need to have help and so I have been craving salads and greens which my PEO group provided for me all week. With colitis, salad is not a good thing so it is nice to crave something I usually cannot have!

I am so tired... I nap at least 2-3 hours every day plus sleep at night. Needless to say my feet and backside are feeling the pain... but I know that during the sleep my body is repairing itself well.

Everywhere I move it is painful... but I am using the pain meds as directed and am slowing weaning myself off. I love to be able to work through the pain as much as possible without overstressing my body. So far today Advil and Tylenol have done the trick!

The good news: the pathology reports said there were no additional cancers found in the lymph node dissection, and that the second tumor had a wide margin of clean tissue around it and that the left breast was clear. The uterus and the ovaries were cancer free as well. So, recovery is a wonderful thing! It means that when my surgical aches and pains are gone, I am essentially cancer free!

I am undergoing a treatment later which I will tell you about more when I learn more. Until then, go and enjoy this lovely November day!
