This week has been anything but random. So let's just pretend for a moment that I'm writing this on Thursday instead of Friday.
This is how my last month has felt. After unexpectedly finding a small breast lump on November 10, and being quickly diagnosed with infiltrating lobular carcinoma on November 15, my world has felt toppled upside down.
Mark took this pre-op photo after the surgeon initialed my shoulder.
Yesterday I was able to shower and wash my hair. Those are things I take for granted on a daily basis. But when you have to give them up for a couple of days, they become one of life's great luxuries. Pain has been minimal and Mark has been an excellent recovery nurse. When you need to spend most of your time on the couch while recovering, Christmas is a lovely time to do just that. My comfy spot on the couch.
