I can't believe it's nearly 11 months since I first found my lump. It honestly feels a lifetime ago. The year has flown by but at the same time it's been the longest year ever.
Lately I have been stressing a little. I think it's not being around the doctors all the time. Treatment has finished. Friends have passed away that I went through chemo with, others have been told that they are terminal and some have been recently diagnosed. Life no longer revolves around the hospital.
Other news. I worked most of the weekend. Next weekend is looking the same. I love the job I am doing at the moment.... Kitchen hand...... Now considering I went through Uni and worked as a Food Technologist for years I am loving what I am doing. Where I work we have so many different groups come through and use our facilities. All walks of life, religions, craft groups, schools etc It is so interesting meeting all of the people.
Tomorrow I have my mammogram. I am so not looking forward to the big squeeze.
My first since just before I was diagnosed. I am still tender from my operation. I never thought 11 months on I would still have discomfort. If I over do it I get quite sore. My upper arm is still quite numb from my lymph node removal. I do have much more feeling from when I was operated but I have next to no feeling in my armpit and maybe 60% feeling at the back of my upper arm. On the up side hardly any underarm hair has regrown lol. There always has to be a positive.
Busy week up ahead. We have had some lovely rain. More showers predicted but we will believe it when it shows in the rain gauge. Kady and Leah have been having their weekly confirmation workshops. Next month Leah does her communion and confirmation and Kady does her confirmation. They both have to choose a name. Leah is leaning towards Charlee but I don't think it's a biblical name lol
Over the last few weeks I have planted my winter veggies in the veggie patch. We have, cauliflower, cabbage, pak choi, Chinese broccoli, another type of broccoli similar to broccolini, two different kinds of climbing peas, capsicum and chillies (from the summer), brown and white onions, spring onions (still from the summer), asparagus that is approaching the one year mark and spinach. Hoping the rain over the last week and the mild temps will help everything grow.
It's colder here tonight. The wood fire is stoked and it's lovely and warm inside. Currently 8.1 degrees. Next week snow is predicted on the snow fields. Tomorrow snow is predicted to 1000 metres. We are at 700 metres. Typical to Victorian weather we go from warm to cold overnight.
My brother rang tonight. Love this guy and love hearing how his family are going. Wished we lived closer.
Hope everyone has an awesome week. Stop by and leave a comment.
