The arm hurts

The blue marker marks are from Elyce and Monica checking my are for swelling - the size hasn't changed thank goodness but since I am having the muscle tightness I will start treatment when I return from SC - gotta get fluid out of lymph system now before arm swells.  therapy will be massage and moving fluid around in body.

Life's too short to be anything but happy.

"Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and have no regrets. Life's too short to be anything but happy." - unknown

 Today is my life partner, Greg, 5 yr cancer free date.  I can remember it like it was yesterday.  I was scared to death that I was going to lose him.  

I look back now and think wow I was more scared for him and of losing him than I was when I was told I had Breast Cancer.  

I am so thankful for my sweetie pie - he always says i am the one constant in his life and that makes him happy and I always tell him he gets on my last nerve but I never want to lose him.   We have been together on this roller coaster called life for 22 1/2 years now!!   and plan on at least another 30 together!!  

I love my man every second of every day!!!

2 yr Annv Breast Cancer removal

Two years ago, on June 28, 2011. I was getting a wire placed in my breast for Breast Cancer surgery.  I was alittle nervous but more anxious about the fact they were suppose to put this wire in while doing a mamography on me - Ouch!  Luckily my cancer was on the bottom of my breast and it couldn't be down so we had to do it by sonogram.  Greg drove me over to the hospital and into Pre-op we went.  I laughed and joked with the nurses.  I was in shock still so I didn't take photos that day - wish I had.  My surgeon and I have agreed when I have my port out I will take photos.

This is a shot of the drainage tube that I had under my arm after surgery - i took this shot the day I was getting it out - 2 wks after surgery

All we need is LOVE!!!
