It Seems I’m Not Dying(yet)

I saw my surgeon yesterday. Just had to share the news.

While he doesn’t know what the lump is-quite rare for a doc to admit, he doesn’t believe that it’s cancer!

Even if it is, it’s well encapsulated, which means it will be removed with ease, and has not spread to other parts of my body.

I’m having it cut out, in his office, on Monday. Not looking forward to that, exactly, but I’ll be glad to have ‘IT’ out of my body.

Slightly embarrassed by my hysteria, but as I said to my friend who went to the surgeon’s office with me, “I’d rather feel stupid, than be dead.”

I’m going to Hawaii, to swim with the dolphins and sea turtles, on the 27th of November. Can’t wait. So glad that I have time left to do the things in my life that fulfill me. We never know when our last breath will be, but at least in my case, I won’t be dying shortly from cancer.


  1. Wayhey, fantastic news! Not great he doesn’t know what it is, but that he doesn’t think it’s nasty is good, and also really positive that it’s being removed so quickly. Keep us posted on how it goes Monday – wishing you all the very best!!

    1. It’s unlikely, but the surgeon is still not 100 percent sure that it isn’t. Will get the news from Pathology sometime this week, or by the beginning of next week, at the latest. I’m not too worried. But I’m also taking Tylenol with Codeine.
