MERRY CHRISTMAS WEEK!
Merry Christmas Week! I hope you all had a great weekend and are thoroughly enjoying the season! It’s taking me a lot longer this last two weeks to do everything I needed to because of the above! I have this darn boot on because of a stress fracture on the top of my foot. I head back to the doctor today to find out how it’s looking, and I am afraid it’s not going to be good. It is still hurting, so that can’t mean it’s healed. I saw my oncologist last week, and she is going to send me to a bone density specialist because of this. She said that having had chemo really does a number on your bones.
I wanted to tell you all a few things. I want you all to know how much I appreciate your support on this blog. The fact that you all read and comment means the world to me. It takes a lot for me to get these posts done, and I appreciate you all so much! That being said, I am going to take off a week or two starting today for two reasons. I don’t want to miss Christmas, and I am having surgery on Friday and will be taking the time to heal.
After my mastectomy, I had reconstruction, and the implants that were put in have been recalled because they are causing cancer. Can you believe that? I will be having those removed on Friday and exchanged with different ones. It’s such a bummer, but I need to get them out. There is a silver lining, though! While I am under anesthesia, I am going to let my surgeon lift my neck! My neck has been bothering me for about four or five years now, and I have wanted to do this. I’m already going to be out so might as well kill two birds with one stone (I heard that that saying is not politically correct anymore, but I’m still saying it). It’s a good thing that it’s winter so that I can wear turtlenecks and scarves for a while!
So, in 2020, my goal is to increase my bone density. I just ordered this Vibration Plate Machine. One of my doctors told me to get one to increase bone density. Have any of you tried one of these machines? I’m looking forward to using it (if my husband can put it together!) as soon as I can.
I wish each one of you the very Merriest Christmas! I hope that you all feel the love and peace of Jesus this Christmas and into the new year. I also wish you the Happiest New Year! I hope you can take the time to write down what you are hoping for this next year. I think writing down your hopes and dreams brings them to life, and I recommend taking some time to do that.
Sending big hugs! xx
