Off to see one of my favorite docs.....

Today I meet with my OB/GYN to discuss a hysterectomy. UGH, not looking forward to this surgery, the happy drugs do not even help get me excited. The fact that ovarian cancer and breast cancer run so closely, this needs to be addressed. I have lots of cysts on my ovaries which caused them to do an ablation and some dusting and cleaning ( D & C to the medical world) in April. That combined with hormones leads to a recipe for cancer disaster. I am no where near menopause so the hormones are a major factor. So, now the question is do I or don't I? A hysterectomy is no friggin joke; major fucking roto rooting of my uterus, but the thought of ovarian cancer oh HELLLLLSSS NOOOOO.  The doctor knows best and I love my OB/GYN and the entire staff and I trust they will have my best health in mind. More than likely I will be spending my birthday in January recovering from yet another surgery. I definitely can play this cancer card for 10 years Heather, again thanks Jen:).

I hope you all see that stupid dumb breast cancer does not end with a mastectomy, chemo, radiation or lumpectomy. A lot comes into play. I also think that the choices I make are right for me and my body. These may not be the best for another person fighting the fight. Every doctor has a different path they advise and if you trust your doctor then go with what your doc and gut tell you. I am so happy that I LOVE all my doctors but this is my journey and the roads I am taking to my recovery. I will never recommend a procedure or tell someone what to do. I am here for your bitching adventure and that is all. Afterall, I am just a stay at home mom with stupid dumb breast cancer...what do I know?

Halloween stupid dumb breast cancer style!

Ok so I totally get adults supporting me. My family had no choice and I am pretty sure my friends are afraid of dealing with me if they didn't. But 12 year old kids blow me away. My son Ben's friends are really awesome. His friend Luke rocked Stupid Dumb Breast like no boy will ever. I always loved this kid but WOW!! He is a boy who loves soccer and hanging with his friends yet somehow, some way Stupid Dumb Breast Cancer is on his mind. I believe that this is how we will find a cure, how we will end cancer. Our kids hold it in their hands!

Awesomeness!

Then there are these 2 girls. Yes they know people who have been affected by breast cancer so I get why they dressed like this.

 
But they took it up to a whole new level. They did not get candy on this Halloween. They asked for donations! This was so generous and kind. This is how children become women and men of the future. This is how we end breast cancer. This is how I believe in HOPE. So when you sit back and watch this you will not be able to find negativity in this, if you do, well you lose. I find two girls on a mission, two girls trying to be charitable, two girls who want a CURE, two cure and a boy with HOPE.....and a very LOUD woman who is so proud of this generation!
