Last week Friday I went in for an MRI and CT scan. The scans revealed that the radiation therapy has been very effective in killing off the cancer cells. But now comes the part I’ve been dreading.
I really wasn’t expecting to go in for surgery for another three weeks since that’s what I was told. Since I’ve been holding up pretty well throughout my treatment, the doctor’s decided there’s no reason to wait any longer. I’m scheduled for surgery on August 4th, exactly 1 year and 1 day from my last surgery.
Truth be told, I’m really…really sad about going into surgery again. I mean I knew all along that this was going to happen and I thought I was prepared for it, but in actuality I’m not. I have become an emotional wreck but I continue to keep my head up, not just for myself but for everyone else. It just hurts to see my family emotionally distraught about my situation. It’s extremely hard for my parents because I know they want to physically be here for me, but it gets emotionally hard for me when they are here. Thankfully my sister will be here while I’m recovering. Plus all the support from my dear friends just makes things easier for me to get back on my feet.
So please pray…pray…pray that my surgery goes well, and that I continue to have amazing healing powers like Wolverine! Let’s pray no more scalpels for me!
