Happy new year! I hope everyone had a great holiday break and some quiet time to spend with family and friends. With Tom changing jobs, we were lucky enough to have lots of uninterrupted time together through the holiday break… And visit with both of our families and friends to ring in the new year.
Now it’s the first week of January… back to work and back to school. Most people are foggy from the holiday shut down but I am really foggy from my two month leave. I am enjoying being back at work, getting caught up from what I missed and reconnecting with all my PwC friends. Tom is overwhelmed with a new job… New acronyms, new people, new structure and figuring it all out virtually. And the kids are finally back in school! Morgan in person and Luke hybrid, virtual 3 days and in person 2 days a week. We’re thankful to be back in a routine!
On the health front, this week was filled with good reports… two important appointments one with my surgeon and one with the oncologist. The surgeon is so impressed with how I am healing and feeling! We are ready to move forward with reconstruction and surgery whenever I am. We scheduled the second surgery which will be the final major piece on February 17. It will be outpatient surgery and about a two week recovery. I’m excited to have that on the calendar and be able to finalize surgery and move forward from all of this! The oncologist appointment was also great - I got another round of shots and luckily not many side effects so feeling good with the treatment plan.
I again want to say thank you. I feel like the words sound so small but I am beyond appreciative of the support and love we’ve had around us throughout this journey. From the meals, to the cards, to the gift, to the text, to the visits… All of it has been truly appreciated and has helped me get through a really hard chapter. Thank you for the care, concern and friendship. I am truly blessed and thankful for my village.
