Sometimes it just feels right to be a bit pissed off.for closer viewI haven't been around because I really haven't felt good. While the news that cancer hasn't spread to my lymph nodes was really good, I struggled to feel the elation I knew I should, because I've been hurting so dang much. It's the in my face stuff that makes it a challenge.I had my follow up appointment with my surgeon today, and he was able to explain why the pain and swelling have been so intense - quite a bit of internal bleeding. He wanted to know if I got hit in the chest, which I did not. So the healing process will be a little slower than expected, and also quite a bit more uncomfortable. This also means a delay before radiation treatment can begin. Can't say I'm too upset about that, at least. The silver lining?! I'll take it as such!!The best way to get over being a bit pissed off,or feel sorry for one's self,is to give of one's self...* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Thank you everyone,for all your thoughtful messages and healing vibes -they've been coming through loud and clear and mean so much to me!And as a way of saying thanksI'm offering a little holiday give-away :)It wouldn't be a *holiday* gift if there weren't the element of surprise to the contents, so I won't divulge the all of the contents, but included will be one of my ornaments. Made with elements of recycling and hardware; from bottle caps to washers, along with a fair amount of bling, these are fun for a Christmas tree, or for catching light and adding sparkle to your environ year round!
Just leave a comment here before Midnight EST,
Friday, December 18th and I'll add you to the drawing,
which will take place the following day, Saturday, and I'll send it off to you as soon as I get your mailing info - hopefully in time for tree hanging, if you are of the tree decorating persuasion!
