Past the point of no return

It's weird to be in the hospital without a brand new baby.

I'm here for a completely different reason. Yesterday I had surgery to remove my right breast. This decreases the likelihood of my cancer returning.
It's kind of alarming.
It feels like I'm in someone else's body.
I'm doing okay, but I feel like it's going to take a while to adjust to this and to feel at home in my own skin.

In other news, hospital food is gross and I have to take sponge baths for the next 2 weeks. So there's that.

Hospital food... what a weird way to kick someone when they're down, huh? But we're still cheering for you out here.

And cheering with all our heart, I might add.

You are on the climb back to health. Every day should get a little better from now on. We love you and pray for you always. You are an amazing woman, and wonderful wife for Adam and great mother for Rafe and Lydia.

Oooo, I'm sorry about the sponge baths. That sounds no fun. Not that the rest of it does either. But you are awesome and we love you!
