05/15/11 Catching up!

Sorry that it has been so long since I posted. It has been a little busy around the Monahan household. Surgery was successful and I have recovered nicely. I am so relieved that I decided on the mastectomy. The pathology report showed a small tumor that had not been detected on mammogram or ultrasound, Thank God for looking out for me and helping me with this decision. I was so relieved to have the drains removed on May 5th. This is always the most uncomfortable part.

Friday, May 6th, I traveled with my parents to Massachusetts for the Memorial Service for my cousin David. It was a trip that I am very thankful that I was able to make. My love goes out to my family in Massachusetts, this has been a very difficult time. We returned on Monday the 9th. I have decided the drive is too long for that short of a trip. We are hoping to return for a longer visit next time. The boys really want to see everyone.

The Race for the Cure was fabulous yesterday. The rain held out and we were amazed by the amount of people that have been touched by breast cancer or just wanted to show their support. I enjoyed the walk and the wonderful family and friends that walked with me.

The next step for me is radiation. I have to meet with the radiation oncologist and then will know when that step begins. I know this is an important part of this journey, but I do not look forward to treatment Monday thru Friday for about 6 weeks. Oh well, no use worrying about it.

Thank you everyone for the continued support. My family really appreciated the wonderful meals that were prepared after my surgery.
