My surgery got scheduled today, and it’s a lot later than I’d hoped – January 28 at noon. I was really hoping for a mid-January date, but we needed to coordinate 2 surgeons’ schedules, since I’m having the lumpectomy and reconstruction while I’m under. I guess that gives me more time to get things ready, but it will make my work schedule much more difficult.
I had lunch with a friend today who suggested that after I’m done with the 52 week targeted chemotherapy (Herceptin) that I should have a celebration in which everyone has to go sky diving with me. I think that’s a most excellent idea, so y’all are on notice. For those of you who don’t know, I went sky diving in September this year and it was the BEST experience I’ve ever had. Sky diving was on my bucket list, and when I got the opportunity to do it (thanks Sherry and Kelsey), I grabbed the chance. There was nothing like the sensation of free falling at 110 mph. I said I’d do it again in a heartbeat and I meant it. Brent, I’m gonna hold you to your promise to come sky diving with me!
Tomorrow I have a consult with the radiation oncologist. Radiation seems so far away right now. Baby steps.
