This time two years ago it was the night before my mastectomy and my breast reconstruction. I remember feeling very calm by the time I got to that day because I was going to survive, I was a lucky one but I remember when they came to take me to theatre I started crying at the thought that life was never going to be the same again. I remember my daughter Nette telling me it was going to be okay and god how I loved her for being there for me. But that was two years ago.
It was the easiest part of the last two years.. the breast cancer .... and two mammograms since have been ALL CLEAR!! I AM ALIVE!!
And I am very humble and grateful that woman in New Zealand can have FREE mammograms every two years because if I hadn't had one in 2007 I would not be here today. They got the cancer early, okay I had to lose my boob but I didn't' have to have treatment. And so I was able to have a reconstruction immediately. So Happy Birthday Boobie xox.
If you've never had a mammogram PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE think about yourself .... and your family. Geez a few seconds discomfort could be the difference between your life or your death, between saying goodbye to your kids and watching your grandchildren grow up.
Between being diagnosed and being rid of cancer within 2 months or finding it too late and suffering through months of chemo. Ring your Breast Screening Clinic on Monday girls..
Chris.. One tit wonder... Hmmm one tit and yeah people do wonder about me sometimes. Haha ... I wuvs you and your soh.
