Over one year ago, I got a tattoo and then found a lump in my breast.
Today, I am going in for my very LAST surgical procedure. This chapter of the journey is reaching its conclusion today.
I am excited to finalize this. And, I appreciate the circle: this journey began with a tattoo, and today it will close with (you guessed it) surgical tattoos. 🙂
It’s been painful at times, and a serious uphill trudge at other times, but overall this journey has been a triumphant one.
I will not be defeated by breast cancer. I own it. It has brought blessings to the foreground and forced me to clean house, and what remains is joy.
Fierce grin, big hugs. Let’s do this! Lara and I are off to the Doctor’s office in less than an hour.
Blessings and love to you all…
