Following up on my news from yesterday, today I learned that I will be having a partial mastectomy in one week, then undergo treatments of chemo and radiation and medication over the next year, but most intensively in the next three months.
Unfortunately, I have an agressive and invasive form of cancer, so the next bit when I find out what stage I am at will be a very important piece of information for my long term prognosis. All signs point to early days yet. I am scared though because I put off getting this lump checked for five months. Please never do what I did.
I will be updating this site with information about my recovery once I am healed from my surgery. I may update first on twitter, because that is easier for me. My handle is @lovenailpolish3
I am taking this on as a project, and I am going to get it done just like I always do. I try to learn as much as I possibly can about a subject and do my best job of completing it. That is the goal, I don't achieve perfection, ever, but I almost always get my goal accomplished in the end.
I like to handle everything with a sense of humor, and so I am trying to keep a smile on my face and enjoy every day. I am going to try to undergo these treatments with a positive outlook and kick cancer's ass.
Watch me throw down on some healing and win in an epic manner ! : )
I may blog and do nails again in the next week until surgery and after that as I can.
Take care and thank you for your positive thoughts and comments so far! It really lifts my spirits up to feel the love and support from friends who care. : D Thank you !
Oh and I want to mention a friend of this blog Arielle Thibodeaux, who is up for Allure Blogger of the YEAR! She is such a friendly and lovely lady, check out her contest entries and vote for your pick here. She blogs about beauty but not just about the physical kind, and that is part of what makes her a standout. Check her awesome blog out here.
It is bloggers like Arielle who talk about all kinds of things in addition to beauty and products that are real and meaningful that have inspired me to share more of my personal story.
