Let's see ... Three things ...

1) I feel like I was run over by a small SUV. Better than yesterday, so that's good. I look a little like someone from the movie "Saw", but that will definitely get better with time.

2) we have a diagnosis and treatment plan for the hubcap. Wegener's GPA or just GPA now, but if you live by the school of google, like I do at times and want to look it up, Googling Wegener's GPA will yield more information. It is a vascular autoimmune disease and isn't great. He will be on oral chemotherapy for the rest of his life. These first three months, they are ramping up the dose (he will take meds once a week), then will hopefully be able to taper the dose back down to the starting dose. He should be able to run again, which is what he loves to do. He is good with what needs to be done because if we didn't treat, the outcome is not good.

3) This is fun to be able to share ... I am on the cover of Brava Magazine (It is a Madison based women's magazine. It's their October issue (the first if their two women's cancer issues). I was so excited to be a part of it!!

I will post in a little bit, when I am not on my phone and can actually post a picture :). Or you can go to www.bravamagazine.com and click on read the current issue (I am in the editors note on page 12).

Friday - September 27

Yowzers, I am SORE. I went in yesterday for my minor procedure (skin removal from settling of the skin from my surgery last year) thinking I would leave with 10ish stitches ... Well, 50-60 later, and I am all good. No activity for the next few days. I can walk Saturday, maybe even a fast paced walk, but no running or anything until Tuesday/Wednesday.

It was a strange experience being awake the whole time.

So, no news for B today ... I just want to know and get started so he can begin to work his way back to himself ... I want him to be able to run again. I want to be able to run with him. I miss our running dates. Hopefully tomorrow we find out.

And tomorrow, I have, what is hopefully, my last cancer related surgery ... Ever! It is just an extra skin removal surgery from the implant removal last year. I won't even be going under, but I still having my body cut open. A little nervous about it but not saying anything to B as he has enough on his mind right now.
