it’s a date

Wow. What a dose of reality. I mean, it’s like chemo and radiation haven’t been real. And now it IS.

Surgery is set for Tuesday, May 1st – 7:50 a.m.

The butterflies are HUGE and I still have FIVE weeks till I’m in the operating room.

I know I made the right choices for me: bilateral, no reconstruction.

But boy, oh boy…no breasts. You know, I was just thinking this morning about the angst I had as a teen waiting for them and finally having them appear. And now there’s angst at having them go.

Breathing very deeply and slowly.
