I went on a grand adventure Wednesday, March 1, 2023… I went to the local hospital and checked out the surgical department to see how they operate! It went very well, with no glitches, and I was home again within a few hours to sleep the rest of the day away. I had a great Doctor!
These days I look at everything I do as a great adventure!!
This was my first experience with surgery for this issue here and I was very impressed with how smoothly it all went… Sure the doctor was a bit behind, but I expected that, as you never really know how long a procedure might take, depending on what is found… I was out of the OR in 25 minutes… She had a look around, cut out the bad spot and stitched me up and that was it. That is minor to me…I don’t even have any pain!! Swelling yes, but no pain!! I am so very grateful for that!
All the OR staff was impressed with my calmness and my knowledge of OR procedures… They could tell it wasn’t my first time in surgery, as I worked with them to get myself all set up on the OR table… Any embarrassment I felt being so exposed in OR rooms left me a long time ago… We were all there for the betterment of my health and I have no embarrassment over that!
I sit here this morning and feel very good! I can sit comfortably. I have to take it easy for the next couple of weeks as I heal, but that is okay, I can putter around the house. I went out Tuesday and did my shopping, so we are good with supplies for a while. I have everything I need and if not, Hubby can go get it… lol
Now the wait begins… I have 6 weeks till my check-up where I get to see how well I healed and get the pathology of the lesion she just took off. I know I will heal fine, I usually do… It is the pathology report that determines whether I have more extensive surgery ahead or if she got it all already with Wednesday’s procedure.
Either way, I know I will be okay. I have survived this Cancer for 24 years, I can keep going. It is for me to have a better quality of life and I am all for that!!
I have a very healthy will to live… It doesn’t matter what my life looks like, as long as I get to live it however I am able! As long as I can get up and go out in the backyard to enjoy Mother Nature that abounds with snow or sunshine, I will be content. I am very content with where I am and what I have accomplished. Time to enjoy retirement!
I share below some pictures I took when I was out on February 17 for another adventure. I love going to the Waterfront to watch the water in the Harbour as I find it very peaceful there and very calming for me. I can feel the pull of the currents in the Atlantic Ocean most of the time. I love where I live!
