After a bout with breast cancer and a mastectomy of the right breast on the 19th January 2004, they have now found cancer in my left breast, so that means another mastectomy. This time though, they can't do the tram flap reconstruction which I'd found such a painful ordeal the last time. So my request is this, on the 11th February, which is the date of my surgery, please where somethink pink to show your support for those who have been inflicted by breast cancer. Thanks, Cindy
So sorry to hear that news Cindy, but I'm sure that you will get through this and soldier on successfully, like the champ that you are. I will also be thinking of you on the day... and unlike Mark, I will get my own stains out of my Pink Shirt... All The Best.. You Take Care Mate!
I've found that if you simply use your hands, cold water (and maybe Pink or Yellow Gloves) and a good stain remover - you can get stains out without the need for: - a wife - a wife's permission - a washing machine - an excuse
Thanks guys! The bonus will be I'll be off work for 5 weeks, so can write some hubs! At least this time I'll have family and friends around me. Last time, was just my kids and I. Mark - don't let Pearldiver try and talk you into doing your own washing! It's a horrible time-consuming job! But he's a kiwi and the men there enjoy working in the house!
I'm sure sorry to hear you're heading back into the ring Cindy. Here's to your rapid recovery and some more great hubs whilst you're feet are kept off the floor.
And yes - I'll wear my pink sweater. Just so you know ... I look horrible in pink but for your good health and breast cancer awareness I'll spend the day listening to folks saying 'you soooooo don't suit pink'
As for the guys waffling on about their laundering prowess - whutever
Cindy, I'll wear my old and awful pink scarf all day (this isn't my color, but I'll do it for you). Wish you very fast recovery and please maybe you like to write a hub about this experience ... ? Maybe?
Thanks for the thoughts, felt quite down yesterday, thinking they're slowly burying me bit by bit. First the right breasdt, then the thyroid and now the left breast. But read this thread again and felt much better!
Hi Cindy, Hope all went well with your surgery yesterday. My sister had a mastectomy three years ago and appears to be doing well. She had chemo and radiation, but elected to not have reconstruction. My thoughts are with you and I hope all goes well for you.
Same here too Cindy. I wore my pink sweater all day (looked a pickle in it too but hey ho) and did think about you and how you were doing. Plus I had to explain a couple of times why I was wearing it - it's a little ... small
Lots and lots of happy, huggy vibes and I hope - like many other Hubbers - that you're soon back to normal. Bestest, biggest wishes - get well soon
Hey ya Cindy... Many thoughts of you and hope you have done well at this stop on your journey to greatness. The path is timeless and well traveled by many special people, just like you. When you look closely you can see that from the dust that rises with each step you take. Conserve your strength and store your positivity so that you can draw on it during the desolate stages of this path. You have a long way to go and you will need a smile every day to make sure that you never let the terrain beat you on the hottest days. Be as brave as you can and if you need anymore than that... well, consider this.. we all love you here and you have and continue to be a beacon for many... and that new lawn mower that you had your eye on.... sorry I got it first! Be Well mate!
Hi, just to let everybody know that I will be away for a while. I am not sure for how long, maybe a week or two. I have not been keeping well lately and from Monday I will be at the hospital (no internet...
