I can’t thank you all enough for the prayers, messages, cards and flowers. I never imagined so many people going out of their way, in the midst of their crazy lives, to show so much love. # Many of you have been asking what I had surgery for. In a nutshell, I found a golf ball size hard lump/tissue in my breast/armpit. I was told by several doctors to remove it to be 100% sure it’s not or doesn’t turn in to cancer. The lump was also painful and uncomfortable. I knew I had to face it whether I like it or not. After waiting for months to get approval by my insurance, the day finally came. # Being the stubborn woman I am, I was one of the rare patients that chose to be kept awake during this kind of surgery. I figured I was awake for both C-sections, it can’t be as bad as that. I also can’t stand the thought of being put under by anesthesia. Losing control of my body and having to recover from hard drugs doesn’t sit well with me. # Unfortunately all the breathing and calming techniques I used didn’t help me yesterday. My body had a weird reaction to the local anesthesia along with the epinephrine, I ended up passing out and vomiting during most of the surgery. The scariest part was when I heard the nurses panicking about my heart rate dropping in to the 30’s. I had no control of what my body was doing. I asked myself if I was dying? I felt myself going in to an unconscious state and couldn’t do a damn thing about it. # I feel blessed to be walking around today and able to edit a program I’ve been working on for some time. I’m hoping to be able to use my arm normally in the next 4-6 weeks. I’m looking forward to being back up and running in no time at all. It’s time to start mapping out my road to recovery. In the mean time thank you again and apologies for my delay in getting back to your emails. #roadtorecovery #blessed
