Newest Update

Journal entry by Christine Glogowski

It's been a long time since I've updated here.  That's a good thing, that means nothing has been happening.  So I have one more surgery, contralateral mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction.  It's scheduled for August 7th up in Madison.  Prior to that though, my surgeon wanted a mammogram on the other side to make sure there's no cancer forming.  Mammogram was Monday - no cancer forming!  Yea!

Now I just need to complete a few things before surgery:
  • Puppies need to go home - they are currently 11 days old, and head home July 22

  • Basement needs to stop flooding - there's been water coming in for the past 14 days, and it's still coming in, so no cleanup can be started yet.  We have two bedrooms and two offices down there - life is in disarray.

  • Just have a couple of pre-surgery appointments after pups go home that need to be done

Once we get closer to the surgery date, I'll get a meal-train sign up started.  Doc said I'll be in the hospital for four nights after surgery, and recovery is a full 8 weeks.  After being so busy enjoying normal life this spring/summer and raising a litter of puppies I will certainly enjoy "taking it easy" and focusing on healing from this final step in my "Year of Cancer"!!!  

Until next time....
