Surgery Update, and Mark Update

Well I’ve been having a pretty good time lately. Mark has been visiting and I’m trying to spend as much time with him as possible. Today we went to Maramec Springs, he spent time with John at the hospital, and we set off fireworks:) fun fun:) He is having such a good time, I’m sure going to miss him when he leaves:(

Update on surgery. Well, I met with my surgeon today and we set a date for July 15th. My chemo port will come out, my side breasts that were left after my mastectomy will be removed…. and thank the Lord TT is getting fixed! (please refer to earlier posts on what exactly a “TT” is;) haha. Let’s just say it’s a part of my body I wasn’t comfortable with and gave it this very funny nickname:) lol

I’m a little scared about the surgery, but hey who wouldn’t be. I remember a conversation I had with my dad after getting diagnosed, and starring down the barrel of a double mastectomy. He said “Jen, you need to start putting things in the rear view mirror.” and that motto has stuck ever since. So…. this is just another thing down and out of the way. But, down deep I’m still scared. It’s out patient, so that’s good….and he said my scars wouldn’t be too bad…also good. I just need to keep moving forward:) Here are some fun photos…my favorite is Mark wearing my wig! lol:) But also one of Mark standing infront of the Navy sign at a Veterans Park by my house. You can see in his face just how proud he is of his dad.

I’ve had a long night and am tired. Night all. xoxoxo

    Hi, Jennifer –

    So glad you had a wonderful visit with Uncle Mark. He is adorable! I hope his presence lifted your spirits. I continue to pray for you and will keep praying for your upcoming surgery to go without a hitch. Hang in there, Sweetie! You’ve toughed it out so far – you CAN conquer anything else that comes your way!

    Love, Pamela
