I have been having a wonderful time recovering from the chemo, being with my kids, organizing the house, playing outside, cooking - all the things that I had been too sick and tired to do for the past several months. It has been a good few weeks.
Tomorrow I am finally going in for a bilateral mastectomy. I have been thinking over the past weeks how I would write a blog about it and how I am feeling, but now that it is here, I have nothing profound to say. It is what it is. I'm nervous because I have never had any major surgery, but I am trusting in God. He has been orchestrating the details of all of this so far, so I have no doubt he will do that tomorrow as well.
From what I have been told, the first two weeks of recovery I will not be able to do anything. The next two weeks I will be able to do more, but no housework or anything that requires repetitive movement of my arms. And no picking up the baby for way too long. I think that is the hardest part.
Many of you have asked about how to help during this time, and so I will post a link to the meal train: http://www.mealtrain.com/?id=maopw61ean9t
And I will thank you in advance for all your prayers. I love you all.
