It’s a new week and a new episode! Let’s hit play on this sucker.
It’s Boob squish day!
Actually, I’m not allowed to have my boobs squished for another six months. But it was boob check day.
AND I’ve graduated to 4 month gaps between check ups! Woot!!
All is good. I’m having some issues with fluid in my arm but they’re mild at best and as soon as I notice it I start the exercises the physio gave me right after surgery and it soon goes away. My doctor isn’t concerned but we still need to keep an eye on it and he’s happy with me doing that myself for the next 4 months. 🙂
I have noticed a trend though. It usually happens when I over do it or I under do it. I just need to find the middle ground on movement until my lymphatic system adjusts to being minus a couple of its intersections (aka lymph nodes).
In other news. Our cruise to nowhere was fantastic!
We ate and drank and laid around. Actually, we walked a lot! It was good though. We took in a couple of shows. Mr.C hit the casino a couple of times. Gambling isn’t my thing so I hung out in our cabin reading and working on my writing schedule for the year. I’ve got some nice, manageable plans and I’m super excited because not only am I starting a new book. I’m starting a new series!
I’m also revisiting an older series.
It feels great to be excited about work again. And life.
Honestly, a few weeks ago I couldn’t imagine myself here, in this head space. I’m beyond thrilled to be feeling mentally and physically “normal” again. And this new me came to a conclusion (or decision) this past week.
I’m a breast cancer surviver.
I’m a surviver.
It’s something I haven’t seen myself as up until now.
Then again, most days I find it hard to believe all that’s happened.
I was diagnosed August 19th, 2021.
I had surgery August 31st, 2021.
Do you know what that means?
Thursday marks 6 months since my operation.
6 months since I became cancer free.
How is it only 6 months?
And how the hell is it 6 months!!
To “celebrate” or “commemorate” or “whatever” I’m taking part in Relay For Life.
March 5 to 13 I’ll be walking as part of Team UPS and raising money for the Singapore Cancer Society. You can check out the details about Relay For Life HERE! It’s a global event so if you’re interested in taking part or donating to somewhere local to you hit up google.
You can support TEAM UPS HERE or you can support ME! HERE!
(Anything you donate to me goes toward the team total and I’ve already smashed my tiny $30 goal 🙂 )
And yes, I’m committed to doing 100 kilometers in 9 days!
The boobs didn’t kill but this might!! 😆
Eileen AW says
Rhian, you sound so much better, an especially more upbeat than the last few posts. 100 km in 9 days means about 11 km per day which shouldn’t be that difficult. I love that the writing muse has returned and that you are starting a new series. Can’t wait to hear about it. And, YES you are a SURVIVOR!!! Take care of yourself!!
