Cha Cha Cha

It has taken me almost 9 months to get up the courage to tell you all about something that I did. Something that was so out of my comfort zone. Something that could have ended not well at all. However, it was something that I felt I needed to do to help raise money for Virtua's cancer program. I agreed (reluctantly at first) to take part in something called "Survivors in Step." Think "Dancing with the Stars." Yes, I wore a ball gown. Yes, I danced with a pro. Yes, I did the salsa. No, I did not fall on my face or butt. No, I did not win (GRRRR), but I will get to all of this.

Once settled in my room, I felt remarkably well. I had a catheter, leg splints to keep from blood clots, 2 IV's, and an oxygen mask. I was able to eat a clear liquid and then even some saltines and apple sauce. I enjoyed a couple of tv shows with Bob and spoke with the kids over the phone. After that is when the r

Good-bye Female parts & Hello Channel 6 News

Tomorrow, October 13, 2016, is a big day for me. In the morning, I am having a full robotic hysterectomy. Since my oncotype test revealed a high chance of recurrence and since my tumors were estrogen-based, I am having my ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus removed in hopes that I do not get ovarian or uterine cancer. My biggest fear for tomorrow's surgery is that I will internally bleed (again) or that they will find something in there (like a tumor). I pray to God there is not a cancer party going on in there that I am late for!

While I am in the hospital recovering, I will be on the n
