We are counting our blessings here with the completion of radiation treatments last week. The kids were all home for a quick visit to help me mark the moment. And boy was it good to be all together, if even for just a skinny minute.
I am taking this month to build my reserves and gear up for the next phase of things. I'll have surgery to gently remove my ovaries & fallopian tubes, & then the implants swapped out for more permanent ones later this fall. I will start Tamoxifen soon, which blocks estrogen receptors in my body…..in other words, a bit more diving into unknown waters. That said, everything now is in the realm of preventive and cosmetic and away from treatment per se, which is a good place to be. I continue all the natural medicine & lifestyle things I know to help build my reserves & my resilience. I am rocking the shortie-short hair do, with some class I am told. Random people ask if they can touch my head to feel the strangely soft fur that is growing in by the day. I am also working more which I love and yes, Paul & I continue to really enjoy the ballroom dancing, too!
I am hoping you are having a bit of summertime wherever you are and that our paths cross again soon! Keep in touch when you have a sec.
With love & light,
