Chemo is on the Horizon

Saturday, July 16, 2011

I just found out this week that I will have to have chemotherapy. I am overwhelmed and in disbelief. It was all supposed to be so simple, lumpectomy and hormone therapy. Wrong, detour, I couldn't have radiation so that increased the importance of the chemo. The Breast Cancer Survivors team has been wonderful and now I just have to wait until I can start it. Probably week after next. Th e journey continues. I have a new dog and she is a rescue. She is a bijon frise mix with either shi tzu or poodle, the verdict is out. She is five years old and a very sweet dog. She was well taken care of. I feel blessed to have her, her name is Sugar. Cindy

    Dear Cynthia,
I know how disappointing it can be to think things are going one way and then suddenly find them headed in another direction. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Stay positive and remember all your good friends here.
I had a shelter dog for about 4 years. He was absolutely the greatest little thing - always so loving and appreciative to have a home. He suddenly got very ill and passed away. As sad as I was to lose him, it made me feel great to know he was happy for the last few years of his life. I vowed then to never again have any pet other than a rescue. They can bring you such joy. I know Sugar will help keep your spirits up.

    Hi Cindy,
I am currently waiting on my oncodx results. But, yes, it is crazy how your life can change so quickly. My cancer is stage 1 also and I had lumepctomy but now found ou that I have the BRCA gene so, will need double mastectomy, and hysterectomy. So, although I am not looking forward to more surgery, I know I need to do it for peace of mind. I am very anxious waiting on oncodx results and am wondering just how much one spirit can take! I went from being in the gym 5 times a week, do going to 5 doctors appt in week now!
I will be praying for you during your chemo. It won't be easy, but I KNOW you WILL come through stronger! I'm so happy that you have your lil Sugar to cheer you up...I'm sure she will help in lifting your spirit!

    You seem like a very strong woman, and this new journey is only going to make you stronger. Stay strong, and keep letting the new dog put a smile on your face.
