The count down has started…3 days till “M” day


I feel like Santa right now. I have my list of things to do,and I am checking it twice. I feel like so much to do in so little time. But really I think that’s how I feel with every event in my life. The anxiety is over whelming!

As I sit here at my oncologist office writing my blog I see patients leaving from the infusion area looking green. I pray that won’t be me in a few week…
Positive thoughts again 🙂

I hope I have prepared well enough for this. Dry shampoo, button down shirts and night gowns, baby wipes, water bottle with a straw, lotion, mastectomy bra, pouch for my drains and a lanyard for the shower. At least I had a good excuse to shop!!


About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!
