Two Days till Mastectomy 


Today was fitting for the daily Bible verse my phone gives me. “ for where two or three are gathered in my name, I am with them.” My sisters, a few cousins, aunt and my mom came over today for a Boob-Voyage party. Everyone got together to celebrate the upcoming removal of my boobs. We played apples to apples and Shoutrageous! With the kids, then burned bras and played cards against humanity. It was a nice afternoon of fun. Even though we discussed my impending surgery and treatments we didn’t get sad or dark. I really felt normal for awhile. For the past week my home has been flooded with gifts for my surgery. Basically everything I need, I have. I’m blessed beyond measure and super happy for my life. I wish this wasn’t happening but since I know that’s foolish I just wish for a gentle journey; For minimal side effects and strength to make it through it, For faith when I feel doubt and for light when I’m shrouded with darkness.

The unknown. The helplessness. The guilt of knowing my genes could be passed to my daughter.

Don’t sweat the small stuff!

Lumps on breast. Breast feeling like it was lactating or tingly. Nipple tingles and sometimes feeling like sharp pains through nipple.
