What I was suppose to be doing today!

What I was suppose to be doing today was have my bilateral surgery and reconstruction DIEP Flap done. What am I doing instead... I am blogging. How could this be so you might be wondering. Well, yesterday I went in to see the plastic surgeon and she told me that the other doctor that works with her my Surgical Oncologist threw his back out and has a herniated disk and his left side was numb so he was have emergency surgery on his back at noon yesterday. I hope that all goes well for him, but that leaves me in a lerch.

As that I do not drink liquor I decided to go and eat what I wanted for lunch and not worry what the doctors are going to say. Because I mean really what are they going to do to me cancel my surgery for a few weeks.... that already happened. So, I went to Cheese Cake Factory and had a Cobb salad ( so good!!!! I have not had a salad from a restaurant in weeks!)and I also had a Godiva cheese cake slice. Let me just say if you love chocolate and you love cheese cake go and get yourself a slice of that from the Cheese Cake Factory.
So GOOD!!!!!

I will try to keep everyone posted on when I am going to go into surgery. That might happen on the 26th of January it might be sooner. Thanks again to everyone that has given their support to me. It means the world to me.

I wanted to comment a few days ago on this, but there was something weird on my work computer that kept asking me about google bookmarks when I wanted to come to this page. I'm like, "I clicked on comments, so take me to the comments!"

Now I forgot what I was going to comment about. Oh yeah...hope your recovery is going well. I'm still just so surprised of what you've been through. Weird how the life "roulette wheel" spins, huh? Then you have people who chained-smoked since their teens live to be 80. Another flukie spin of the wheel.

Oh, Sweet!... said...

Hang in there Brit! We love you and will keep you in our prayers! You are a light to us all. You've had such a good attitude! Thank you for your friendship! Love you!!!

Hey! You didn't update your blog yet! lol Sorry about not calling - I have an aversion to the phone. I wish there was a medication for it. And of course the other day when I was on the phone with someone about my church calling, Christian decided to let the dog out (because he knew I wasn't paying attention) and that's when he got attacked by the neighbor dog. So see? The phone is BAD LUCK for me. lol

But mine and your blog and email (chrisandjillh@cox.net) are checked often and replied to often. If you want to go in a chat room late one night (it IS a three day weekend!) shoot me a message and I'll meet you in there!
