Thankful that surgery went OK… Dr was able to do it laparoscopically. He is a sheer genius.

Thankful for all the loving support of my Friends and family.

Now waiting for results from biopsy of lymph nodes and fatty tissue around the colon. That will determine if I need chemo or not. As much as I want A new head of hair and a lot of weight loss, I certainly hope I don't have to go that route… Put on your armor, my prayer warriors!

And thank you Stephanie for setting up June thread.

Dang, Kathy, you go to some extraordinary lengths to get me back here, girl!
Love this Warrior Woman's FB response to yesterday's surgery:

Surgery went
VERY well!
emoticon
Thanks for all the loving support!

That's such a huge gratitude that it fills this whole page and my whole heart!

My gratitude is endless and over-flowing for so many reasons though, so here are a few more:

~ my own body's strong immuno-response to illness
~ firends who support us through thick-and-thin, ups-and-downs
~ a yoga retreat soon...in the GRAND BAHAMAS (YES!) -- can't wait to feel the Caribbean waters lapping at my ankles
~ this virtual REAL community which has withstood so much and trundles on, with dear friends here, who I love and miss

Love is all there is,

OK. Here's the deal. I have cancer and I am going in for surgery tomorrow. Colonoscopy found it, after routing screening. I have had NO symptoms. The CT scan shows no evidence of metastasis. No enlarged lymph nodes. The cancer marker (CEA) is normal, not elevated. All of those are clear indicators that it is self contained.

The same surgeon that has taken such excellent care of me in the past will be doing the procedure tomorrow. IF there is no lymph node involvement (they will biopsy the nodes once removed during surgery) I will not need chemo. It is pretty straight forward.

All that being said, I am EXTREMELY thankful that we caught it early and that my prognosis is excellent. Also that I have friends who have stepped up and offered to help me during my post op recovery.

I held off telling my son until this morning. He has so much on his plate... and I wanted to make sure I had all the info first, so I could honestly answer his questions.

Please hold me, and of course my son and his precious family in your thoughts, and prayers. It is certainly a challenging time in our lives.

Now....I will be in the hospital when It is time to set up a new thread, so I am hoping someone will take that responsibility on for me.

IF you don't hear from me, for a while, it doesn't mean anything more than I am drugged, in pain, or sleeping! I should be fine...

Grateful today for sticking it out when times got tough with my hubby. Tomorrow we celebrate 30 years of wedlock. We celebrated earlier this year when we took a road trip around parts of southern Brazil, a life long dream. But my hubby surprised me with this billboard in my honor. The caption in Portuguese says, "30 years of a romantic journey for three, me, you, and our Savior. May He give us that much and more."



Fear arises when we imagine that everything depends on us. E. Elliot

Today I am grateful for:

-Taking my motivation wherever I can get it; this week, it's my yearly blood work next week giving me an extra boost to an already good year on health matters
-Survivor providing entertainment, pretty ocean scenery and motivation; now that's the way to watch TV, in my book (I don't watch much)
-Reaching the max this year on my company's health incentive program that gives me three $25 gift certificates for earning 250, 500 and 750 points in various health endeavors
-Splurging with one of the gift certificates to order a spiralizer I've been thinking about for months
-Working on ways to more easily accept a dear friend's annoying personality trait: indecision! Even after a decision's been made, she's got to go back and forth about it (and we know I have NO annoying traits!! ROFLOL)
-Doing my 10-minute stairwell cardio burst this afternoon (Floor 9 to 16, 16 to 1 and 1 back to 9)

Today I'm grateful for:

-Making Dijon Chicken Monday night, a dish I used to cook with Beth and haven't made in 3+ years and remembering why it was a "go to" dish
-Working on an attitude adjustment with cooking; turning it from being difficult since I'm alone to being able to cook whatever I want, whenever I want
-The farmer's market produce I picked up helping instigate more cooking and great salads (spinach, red romaine, butterhead lettuces), as well as getting me out of bed earlier on Saturday morning - win/win
-Planning for a walk in the park this evening or working out during Survivor (fitting, I think)
-Continuing to make plans for my upcoming long weekend in NOLA with major excitement over meeting friends from NC and South Africa
-My amazing three little kitty girls who add so much joy, love and laughter to my life with their individual personalities and quirks

Today I am grateful for:

-My mother and still having her around
-The other "mothers" in my life, those gone that live on in my heart and those still with me
-The joy of mothering my three 4-legged kitty girls, all rescues (I'm still not sure who rescued who in this situation)
-A wonderful brunch with a very inspirational friend, followed by a gorgeous walk in Kauffman Memorial Gardens, with so much in full bloom
-My heating pad, as directed by my massage therapist, to help my messed up supraspinatus muscle in healing
-My first "savory" galette at brunch (sweet potato, kale, red pepper, goat cheese, onion); it was pretty incredible
-A relaxing weekend, mostly at home, with very few plans

Today I'm grateful for:

All that's right in my life and here.
The good health my family and I enjoy.
The willingness to say I'm sorry when I'm wrong.
The willingness to let go of relationships that cause me pain and turn them over to G-d.
The willingness to let go of disappointments and judgement.
Forgiveness
A husband who loves me and cares about my happiness.

Mazzy

It's your first and last garment; it is what you enter life in and what you depart life with,
and it should be treated with honor.
