I must first thank everyone who has taken the time to call, write, send me a text, email, facebook and/or twitter post to wish me well on this journey. Your comments, prayers, and words have truly meant the world and kept this journey just a little easier to bear.
I must give extra thanks to a few:
July 26th, I will check into the University of Pennsylvania hospital for a 12 hour (minimum) surgery. I will be having a double mastectomy followed by a free flap reconstruction. The recovery time (approximately 6 weeks) will be longer than some other procedures but this seemed to be the best option to avoid a reoccurrence. It will require a hospital stay of five days. I guess God and my body was telling me that I needed a break. I sure wish I would have listened sooner. Never in a million years did I expect to be on this journey but I know that God has something greater in store for me so I will not complain.
What's your body telling you? Whatever it is please listen…
