Don’t Be Mad At Ya Girl!

I know I’m in the dog house for leaving y’all hanging. I had every intention of updating you guys on my health status as soon as possible. Somebody lied and told me I was Superwoman. I think the heffa was me. I mean, who actually thinks that major surgery isn’t going to slow them down?

Anyway, I’m happy to report that I am cancer free! *Internally jumps up and down with glee while doing a holy dance.* You don’t know how happy I was to wake up from that operation without a single chemo port in me. The first thing I did after thanking God that I even woke up, was check for ports. When I didn’t find any, I almost couldn’t believe it. Just to confirm, I asked the nurses. I might have been high as a kite and speaking gibberish, because they looked at me like I was crazy. Eventually, a resident came over and gave me the good news. I’ve never been so relieved in my life.

I took a video for y’all the day after surgery  while I was still in the hospital. It will never EVER see the light of day. Talk about a hot mess. I didn’t even know I could be so gray. And so swollen. Not a good look, to say the least. I stayed in the hospital for a total of about 32 hours, then I got sent home despite my protests.

I’ll post later on the recovery process, but suffice it to say that it sucked. I had some setbacks, but I made it through. In a few more weeks I’ll be cleared to resume normal activities. In the meantime and in between time, I’m enjoying the housework restrictions and copious episodes of Parks and Recreation.

I so appreciate all the love I received in the form of flowers, cards, well wishes, prayers and phone calls. I’m truly blessed!
