Journey with Friends – Week 47

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Hey sweet friends.  I am feeling so much better this week – YAY!  I actually might survive this surgery.  It has definitely been a most difficult 2.5 weeks from surgery.  There were plenty of ups and downs, lots of pain and lots of amazing moments.  I’m actually able to do more now.  I still can’t bend over, raise my arms to high or lift anything – not even Houdini – but it’s getting better each and every day.  I’m also staying up full days.  Trust me, I took LOTS of naps during the past couple of weeks.  Resting/sleeping means healing and we want that.

It definitely was a huge surgery.  They were able to remove the three lumps in question (two on the left side/one on the right side).  Those were sent to the lab for testing and came back no cancer – double YAY!  In the big scheme of things, they removed a total of 5.5 pounds.  That was 3.5 pounds from the left side (the worse side) and 2 pounds from the right.  Healing is processing.  The left side got a huge hit but it’s looking good.  I guess you can say literally I’m a work in process.

I to say thank you to all you my friends for the letters, emails, phone calls and guidance during this time.  I expected pain and recovery but it seemed like a got a big dose of it especially the first week.  Your thoughts, prayers and kind words really meant a lot to us here at the Hotel Thompson.  We ❤ you!

I did some updates on my surgery blog if you would like to read about them – here.
