Goodbye boobs...

This is weird, I'm at my mums in my old bed, last time I was here was the night before my wedding, also with a feeling of anxious anticipation, but obviously much much happier about the impending day ahead & not silently praying that all will be ok..

Saying goodbye to my little boy was the hardest thing ever, I practically sobbed the whole way in the car, it's not the leaving him, that I've done lots of times, but the thought that... well let's not even go there!

I have to be at the hospital by 7am, around 8 i'll be taken somewhere for a Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy, & then the operation is at 11, it should take a couple of hours, an hour in recovery & back in my room by 3pm.

So before I try & get some sleep, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my wonderful family & friends for their unconditional love & support. It's because of you all that I'm able to face this journey with courage, faith & humour.

To everyone reading & sharing my blog, a huge thanks as you are helping to raise awareness, and strive towards a future free from the fear of Breast Cancer.

Goodnight everyone & see you on the other side!

  5. Hi Jo
    May I congratulate you on your fantastic attitude towards your journey.
    I am embarking on a similar journey on 8th Jan and wondered what it is like on the other side?
    I am having the left one and the sentinel node removed (may be walking round in circles for a while, like a rower with only 1 oar hehe)
    Best wishes to you and yours
