Surgery all over -- I'm trying to get up and about. Going to sleep for a long time. Not good with pain killers --makes me sick and weepy. But almost done. So so so happy to be almost done! Thank you for all the messages of support!
So glad to be done with surgery and so happy that my sister is here with me! Kimmy just makes life so much better. I don't know what I would do without her and the rest of my family, Love them so so so much.
I'm thrilled to have a second family -- my social and Facebook family, thank you for being with me-it's an honor to call you friend.
Much love to you.
My final surgery is this Thursday, May 19th - I scheduled it one year to the date of my double mastectomy. For these past months, I have let my body heal and calm. So now it's time take my last visit (fingers crossed!) to the operating table.
As you know, this hasn't been a straight course. It's been a path of unexpected and difficult detours. Even without extra challenges in recovery, the last year of treatment and expanders bring pain that makes you want to fast-forward the calendar pages to the final phase which, for me, comes this Thursday.
I am grateful and blessed to complete the end of a story and I can never thank you enough for supporting me through it.
I am hopeful and thrilled with relief to be cancer free and completely back to me (or in some parts even younger!)
My team will continue to post updates as I go through this process and of course keep the #Sandras50in50 Countdown going every day.
Thank you for closing this chapter with me-- We will start a whole NEW book together for the NEXT 50 years! And for those of you still going through the fight or supporting someone who is, I will always be here for you.
All my love always,
Check ups going well- seem to be good! Yay and peace everyone!
Good morning everyone! I wish you a happy happy day wherever you are!
My sister Kimmy and I are leaving the hospital now for the final time (fingers crossed!) But before we go home, I'm taking her directly over to my doctor to get her annual mammogram. After that, we will go home and rest for the next couple days.
Please have a lovely weekend and happy Friday!!!!
Andrew was so sweet through everything- God bless him for being so strong and supportive of me
