Burn baby burn..

If only I was dancing to that song rather than singing it to myself.  I cannot believe how bad my armpit seems to be getting.  I wonder how long it will be before I have skin there again.. Gosh I had no idea that was going to happen.

Im still so very tired, and the pain killers are making me drowsy. I’m going to see a doctor today for a second opinion. I will ask him about my burns too. Perhaps he has a better suggestion.

I hope all you who are fighting out there are being strong.  When fighting for your life it makes everything else seem less important.  But with something like this you have to make sure you keep fighting and take more care of yourself. The all clear means a second chance at life, which means a fresh start a new way of living, better than the last one. So be sure to make the most of it and never give up. Life is too precious.

Well this is a short one as brain is a little fuzzy..

Scan Day

I’m off to get my CT scan today.  I’m currently sat here staring at a dairy milk chocolate bar, my favourite fighting myself not to eat it. lol I’ve had a sip of water though as felt dizzy this morning.  Been feeling dizzy a lot recently and I think its the pain coming out in a different form.

I’ve always been the kind of person that wants to get up and do stuff.  When I had my c section I left the clinic on the 3rd day. Looking back I should have stayed a while longer! But I’ll know for next time instead!! lol  This surgery however has really knocked it out of me.  And my arm is so sensitive to touch that even when someone brushes past me it hurts.  The skin is painful. How odd.   It constantly feels as though there is a string inside my arm that is pulled to tight and I cant outstretch my arm.   I keep doing my exercises but last time it took three weeks before my arm felt a little better and this was a deeper more serious surgery so I expect it will take even longer.

I’ve taken some photos of the progress of my armpit.  It looks rather gross but well the rest of me doesnt look to shabby.  Apart from my face.  I feel I look pale and kn

ackered all the time! lol I had my hair done last week.  A nice bright red to cheer me up. I guess I’ll feel better when they take Bob out.    He’s been in for 2 weeks now. Not draining much fluid though so here’s hoping.

I’m hoping to get a tattoo done soon.  I am having my sons name and perhaps something extra too. Not sure on which part of my body though obviously not on my right arm as you know you can never have anything done to an arm that has no lymph nodes.  I now have an arm with special needs. So I’m nice to it and take extra care of it too.

Well here are my second op photos:
