1. I’ve been back to the radiation center and been marked and measured (I can prove it! I have permanent marker all over my chest! With tape so it doesn’t wash off!) for radiation treatments, which will begin Monday, May 17. No biggie. I mean, stressful, sure, but I’ve had worse.
2. You CAN get your money back for the tylenol/motrin/zyrtec that was recalled. Click this link; they’ve added it since I posted about the tylenol and motrin recall earlier in the week. You’ll need your bottles, of course — which might be difficult if you threw them away as the initial press release seemed to suggest. (Sigh.)
3. The last couple weeks of concentrating all my time, energy, and love on healing and helping my little boys navigate this tough time appears to be working. The seroma is no longer a problem. The infection is starting to clear up. The cuts are turning to scars. And my little boys? One dreamily says, “Mama, me wuv you,” as he turns over to go to sleep in my arms, and the other told me last night, “Mama, know what?” What, my dear one? “Your superpower is love.”
I can’t think of higher praise from a five-year-old boy.
