Today is a GOOD day!

Today is a GOOD day!

Today is a good day – a VERY good day!  A good day because I got the results of my lumpectomy and the biopsy of my lymph nodes and I got the all clear on them!

Clear margins of my lumpectomy means they got it all – all of the breast cancer.

And clear results of the lymph node biopsy means the cancer had not yet spread to them.

My CT scan and bone scan are clear too.


I’m so so happy right now!

It isn’t over, it’s just the beginning in some respects.  I’m now awaiting chemotherapy and radiotherapy to be arranged and I expect to be facing that treatment for the next 6 months +.  The hard work is just beginning for me and my family.

Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are an absolute must for my form of breast cancer.  It’s Triple Negative breast cancer which is a rarer and very aggressive form.  It needs aggressive treatment.  Although the scans are all clear, we need to be as sure as possible that the cancer cells have not spread anywhere else in my body.  If they have, they can bugger off – you can run but you can’t hide cancer – chemo is coming for you!

That said, I’m dreading chemo.  Who wouldn’t be?  I’m not focusing on that yet, it’s in the future.

But it’s a future that looks very very GOOD!

I’m dreading chemo but I’m also so keen to get started.  The sooner I start, the sooner the battle commences and the sooner I get to the finish line.

And like I already told you, I’m going to win!  I’m already winning.

I’m winning because you’re willing me to win and I won’t let my family and friends down.  Thank you so so much for all of the messages, emails, calls and texts.  I’ve just been so blown away by everyone’s support and every day I’m reading your messages and they’re filling me with even more positivity and hope.  You are all WONDERFUL!  I’m replying to each and every message, bear with me as it’s been a busy time but I have read every message and I’m so so grateful.

I’m grateful to my amazing surgeon who I hope to not have to see again for another 12 months!

And I’m especially grateful to my amazing employers and colleagues whose support and kindness during this really hard time has meant the world to me and my family.  We are so, so grateful for everything you are doing for us and just can’t thank you enough x x

I think that’s just about gushing for now!

I’m off to bed soon for I hope the best night’s sleep I’ve had since the diagnosis.  I’m still pretty sore from the surgery but I’m also very, very happy :)

    This is such a wonderful post and such fab news for you. I’ve been following your blog since I became pregnant and it was such a shock to read your post about contracting breast cancer but I was so inspired by how positive you were straight away. I often think recovery can have a lot to do with how strong you feel mentally as well as physically. Stay strong and continue loving life with your lovely family. All the best. Holly
