I know your time is precious, so I appreciate you taking time to pop in! How was your week? Are you enjoying some beautiful spring weather?
Last week I knew surgery would soon be approaching, so I scheduled play dates with days to rest afterwards. I visited my local library (support those local libraries!) and had a morning Bible study with a new friend. So, it was an active week! This week there was little time for hobbies or blogging! I even forgot to link up to some of my regular parties! 😮
I'm grateful to have had those days, however, as my surgery is scheduled for this Thursday! So, let's move on with this blog so I can fill you in!
Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer - Here you will find updates on life after Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I was diagnosed in November of 2014 and my last day of treatment was in November 2015.
Though I've read a bit this week, other activities took over! I am still focusing on Once I Was You by Maria Hinojosa. Oh my goodness! The Rose Code is a wonderful audio read thus far!
I finished 8 hexagons which accounted for fabric usage. (See below) Otherwise not much is happening in the sewing room. I do however, have several quilts that need to be bound. Hopefully, I'll be attaching the binding this week and binding them as I recover from surgery, so my numbers should be even better! Fingers crossed, there should be no major purchases for a bit!
To Do Tuesday
Over the course of this week my grandchildren and I made four dozen biscuit donuts! When they’re being shared between nine people, they don’t go very far :-) we serve them on my birth mothers fine China following my dog granddaughters desire to serve them with ice cream, sprinkles and chocolate syrup over the donuts :-) In keeping with trying to eat healthier, I sent most of them home with the grandbabies! I’m so very grateful for this time we had together.I’m continuing my quest to eat healthier with these mason jar salads.
I also made some overnight oatmeal Which make a great breakfast or even a nighttime snack.
I saw this picture of future board directors in my doctors office and just had to share :-)
On Monday I made hamburger soup to ward off the job! Here was my base recipe, but of course there were a few changes! It was delicious!
Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer
I finally have a date for my MAKO robotic partial knee replacement: March 31! Many thanks to the medical scheduler at my doctor’s office, everything came together very smoothly. Clearance paperwork has been faxed in and I should be ready to go.
I’ve heard that recovery is very quick and easy, but I made the mistake of researching online. I’m a little bit nervous as those incisions look huge and the actual surgery looks dicey, but as you can tell from this weeks devotional, I am trying to replace thoughts of fear and dread with keeping my mind stayed on Him and trusting Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.
My PCP told me that when she picked her sister up from the hospital after surgery, they actually went out to eat! I’m so grateful that God is surrounding me with people who are sharing such wonderful words of encouragement! He knows I sure need them :-)
Due to the application's ease of use, I'm planning to share updates on Instagram. For those of you without Instagram, I'm hoping to share very brief updates on the blog as well. I look forward to seeing you on the other side of this experience!
In the meantime take good care!
