It's time to CELEBRATE
20 years ago today (March 18, 2002), I was in the operating room at MCV hospital in Richmond, Va. having a hefty length of my colon removed. I had colon cancer. Had no clue.
I was supposed to be getting a knee replacement but during pre-op for that, they discovered I was anemic and set about finding out why.
Well, they found it alright. And, it wasn't fun, I tell you right now. The nurse told me afterwards that I would be shocked to see what all they had to do in there. It 'a'int' been right since!! But, I thank my lucky stars that my knee saved my life. For, if it hadn't have been for that knee surgery that cancer probably wouldn't have been discovered in time.
After months of chemo, life slowly got back to the normal we were living with at the time. I had a husband, who had Alzheimers, to care for. I always thought God saved me so that I could share my hubby's last years.
Here's a picture of my husband taking me for a walk. First time out of the house after my surgery.
