|Fighting Ovarian Cancer|
Since December 21 of 07 I've been in the battle for my life. Diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer, when I went to the doctors for what I thought was a gallstone in my gallbladder. I did have the stone, however, I was also diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Had surgery January 18th removed the gallbladder, my ovary, tube etc and one foot of my lower bowel. |
Since that week nothing for this 61 year old mother, grandmother, wife, and friend, etc has been the same. And yesterday my sister shaved my head as the hair was coming out by the handfuls. I really didn't think it would bother me as much as it did to become bald. Well dam....I'm depressed, however, moving on and praying for a full recovery. The aggressive Chemo hurt my kidney (acute renal failure) and now I pray they will come back. So from a 60 hour work week...a mere 4 to five hour sleep night..I find myself exhausted, praying and sleeping hours on end.
I'm so pleased I have a blog www.grammology.com to write for. I try to find energy to keep up with the days. I never thought age was a boundary, however, I wonder if I were younger if this would be easier. You also ask yourself what your future is as I've been told now with the wounded kidneys I have to look for alternative therapy.
What the heck is that? So on I ponder. Grateful to be alive. Wondering what my future brings
I did learn, in one sentence your life can change...are you prepared? Based on my last two months not many of us are.
