Last night I pushed myself, took a shower, got dressed and headed out to Miss J’s musical performance. It wasn’t an easy task to pull off, but I’m so glad I did. She did such a great job – and she loved every minute in the spotlight when she was on stage. I was very happy to be able to share in her joy and enthusiasm.
Despite the recent setback from Wednesday’s surgery, unfortunate news of the test results mishap and reconstruction plans delay, I am trying to adopt a new outlook. A fellow “cancer girl” suggested that I might consider using this limbo time to just enjoy the status quo and relish in the “ignorance is bliss” concept. And I think that’s what I’m gonna try to do! At the present moment there are silver linings: I have not been officially been ordered to do chemo, my expander is repaired, my range of motion is improving, my hair is clean and freshly blow-dried (thank you JB for coming over yesterday for a house-call!) and I’m kicking back in my chair, watching football. A good Sunday.
The only doctor’s appointment I have this week is to get stitches out on Friday. So I’ll try to take a break and take off my “cancer patient” hat and instead put back on my “mom”, “volunteer”, “football tweaker” and “online shopper” hats on this week. And to that end, check out my reccos for adding holiday sparkle to your ensemble.
