Sometimes you just don't know when you're going to be thrown a giant curve ball. Well last month we got one bigger and nastier than I could ever imagine. For a few weeks prior I hadn't been feeling the best. Nothing too bad, just some irritable bowel type symptoms, some minor pelvic pain, some bloating, reflux etc. I didn't think too much of it, but decided to call my doctor. He really didn't think it was much more than endometriosis and reflux. The very next day I happened to turn on the tv and the Dr. Oz show was on. I NEVER watch that show, but it was a God thing and RIGHT when I turned it on, they were listing all my symptoms. They were talking about ovarian cancer. I was terrified and called my doctor back immediately. They got me in for an ultrasound 2 days later. A grapefruit sized tumor was found.
On November 23 I had surgery to remove the tumor and it was ovarian cancer. Needless to say, life has completely changed around here. I have been recovering from this MAJOR surgery (who knew an incision could be so big!!!) and preparing myself for chemo starting on the 29th.
I really debated about sharing here, but a good friend encouraged me to. You can never have too many people praying for you right?
I haven't been knitting much since surgery, but I hope to get going again soon. Maybe next time I will actually have a picture!
