Happiness Is..

Healing Time.

A year ago today was my second cancer surgery (complete axillary lymph node removal).

I wish I’d known, going into those surgeries, that my right arm and upper body would be permanently damaged. And I sure wish I’d known to try breaking that scar tissue up right away.

But something else I didn’t know, back then, was whether I’d be here today.

I’m grateful that I am.
And for my resilient family, our working limbs, our healthy bodies and our joy.

    It’s amazing how the surgical recovery is such a distant memory. It wasn’t until seeing the photo on the far left that I remembered how nervous I was being present to see the bandages removed by the nurse and to learn how to help you keep the area clean.nnYou look great!
