Hello My Friends &Family, I am a Fun loving loyal friend and I thank you all in advance for your love & prayers. Welcome to my Cancer page. One, that I thought I would never have. My journey started out with my right ear feeling a little funny, then my right lymph node became swollen. After many tests, I was diagnosed with cancer in my right Tonsil and of course my lymph node right below my ear. That’s the bad news . the good news is my cancer is very treatable. But it’s still scary though.! I wasn’t planning having my tonsils out at the age of 60.But hey , I’ll get lots of ice cream right ? ?
My surgery will be Wednesday, June 15th at Trident Hospital in Charleston,SC .they will remove both of my tonsils & my affected lymph nodes. I will be in the hospital for approximately 4-7 days. I will be on a liquid diet for 10 days. Ensure here I come ! After I heal I will begin my treatment which will be Radiation , 5 days a week for 6 weeks. I may have to have chemo, The pathology of my lymph nodes will determine that.
I have 11 weeks to to get better! Our daughter Julie is getting married on September 5th, 2022 in the Blue Ridge Mountains! We have worked so hard planning this wedding, I’m determined to be dancing with my Husband ,my Amy & Julie and my family & friends. SO KEEP THOSE PRAYERS COMING, They are working ! I appreciate all of you & I Thank you for your continued support while I battle this journey !🙏🙏🙏😘😘😘😘
