For the Love- Thank You



What’s Jack up to? Well it looks like jack is starting to enjoy the snow. Maybe it’s due to his Old Navy jacket and Cool booties from Ina in Alaska that keep his paws warm. Quite sporty.


Thank you all so much for the love and support yesterday. I’m sore (Freakin’ Ouch!!) from my surgery but trying to be positive. The biopsies went well but I won’t have any results until after Christmas so I’m going to focus on healing and trying to have a low stress and full of love holiday with the DH, DS, DD and the rest of the fam. That is the most important thing. That and being thankful to God for each day.



Speaking of thankful, I can’t thank my caregivers at the Women’s Imaging Center, Ann Marie and the gang and my fab surgeon (another mom on twins) and at the staff at the hospital yesterday enough. Even when they were doing the most awful things with needles in terrible place they were doing it with such gentle care and love that I’m so grateful. These are truly special people and should be applauded.

Thanks to my friends who will not be denied with all their offers of help and support and my knitting circle who will not be stopped. The food is coming along with the love and laughs.

My advice to you all: Get your Mammograms (despite changing guidelines. I’m 40) and do self exams. Take good care of yourself and be your own best advocate.
Thanks again for the love. Sorry for rambling and repeats. Still on high powered pain killers over here.

Much Love,
Kwana

Look at Jack! I wonder if he knows how adorable he looks.

Take good care of yourself, and may Santa bring you a year filled with health and happiness.

Kwana, I am sorry to hear the trials you have been going through. I haven't been on the computer too much lately. I'm glad the surgery is over (can you give me any pointers on how you got past the surgery?) I will keep you in my prayers and hope the news will continue to be good.Sending you many hugs...xo

Joyce said...

Oops I forgot to mention how adorable handsome the Jack looks. xo

Kwana said...

Thank you all for the kind words. I'm resting much and the DH and good friends are taking care of me.
Joyce, as for the surgery you just do it. I'm glad I was put out. I'd like to be put out for the recovery too. But pain killers help and rest. It's better to have the surgery than have the doubt.

Tell Jack Maddie thinks he looks very dapper in his outdoor gear.

Take it easy and get lots of rest. I'll be praying for you. Have a very Merry Christmas.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Just rest, sip tea and watch old holiday movies! Black and white ones only!

Wishing you a happy peaceful Christmas! And Jack too!

Jack looks adorable in his jacket and boots. He looks warm!!!

Take care of yourself and get plenty of time to relax and don't lift a finger.

Glad you had wonderful care!
