Surgery date

Well the date is set...April 8th at 11 a.m. I'll be glad when it's all over. After the surgery there will be seven weeks, five days of week, of radiation therapy. Yikes! Five days a week? I wonder if I get paid for it?? I may or may not have to have chemo. I'll find that out after the surgery. It will only be an overnight stay in the hospital. Although I'm only have a lumpectomy, I told Calvin I'm going to write, "goodbye old friend", on my boob. When they get me into surgery that should give everybody a good laugh.

In other news I cleaned up my sewing area so that I can trash it all over again. I put out two garbage bags of scraps and muslins. My next project is going to be an unlined long sleeve Vogue jacket. I hope to trim the pattern and make adustments and start working on the muslin before the week is out.


  1. I hope you have a good support system while going through the surgery and treatments. I cannot know how you feel, since I haven't experienced it. What I do know is--a positive attitude will pull you through. Hold onto the person you lean on, take a deep breath--and kick cancer's butt. You can do it.

    Work on your jacket, and make yourself a beautiful thing.

    Keeping good wishes for you.

  2. I wish you the best with your surgery. I'm sure you'll be happy when it's all over. You've had a very good attitude about it all so I know things will go well. You've been making some really nice things, I love the jacket, it seems nice for spring since it's light weight.

  3. You will be in my thoughts and prayers on the 8th!

  4. Praying for you and will especially be thinking and praying on the 8th!!!

  5. I will be praying for you. I really admire your positive attitude, it will get you through.

  6. I too am praying with you! Keep the faith:)
