December 29, 2014

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.

    I’m sorry that your surgery was scheduled so much later than you had hoped, but I am supportive of your skydiving celebration at the end of your chemotherapy. It is a most excellent idea.
