Special J
As you can see, I have updated Jeannette's mood to "special" today -- she is feeling much better and looking forward to her post-operative appointment at Loma Linda this afternoon. Although she has a stash of pain killers that could take out a horse (no kidding - the pharmacist was reluctant to release the prescribed quantity), she has had to take very few. Her sense of humor has returned (although she scolds me if I make her laugh because laughing is painful), and she also announced last evening that she is bored! What on earth will it take for this girl to rest?

I know your messages have facilitated her speedy recovery - her face lights up with joy with each note, card, gift, and call. Thank you so much for loving my sister.

A note to caretakers: Despite my best effort, I was not prepared for the emotions I experienced when Jeannette first came out of recovery . . . and I'm not sure words from anyone could have prepared me for that. However, that evening at the hospital now seems so distant because the joy of recovery is so great. Bottom line: hold on -- it will be painful at first, but I promise you will be amazed, and blessed, by the experience.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
