Dear Friends and Family,

I thought that I would “check-in” since I haven’t written in awhile.Β  I am on summer vacation, but have been busy with doctor, dentist appointments and professional development for work.Β  I met with the plastic surgeon and the anesthesia department last week to prepare for my upcoming surgery on Tuesday, June 19th.Β  I know that it sounds weird, but I am looking forward to having surgery because I feel that is one more “piece” of the puzzle to moving on to my “new” normal.Β  The surgery will be a day surgery, which is nice.Β  The recovery time is two to four weeks.Β  I will play it by ear as to how I feel recovery-wise.Β  This surgery will not be as involved as my surgery in March. Β 

I know that I have said this before, but cancer has totally changed the way that I look at life.Β  I value each day that God has given me and am looking forward to my upcoming birthday even though I will be recovering from surgery.Β  My friend and breast cancer survivor says that “a birthday is a privilege, not a guarantee.”Β  I now view my birthdays differently than I have in the past and that statement rings true and makes so much sense!
