So many of you may not know much about me since I don't share a lot of personal things on here except maybe a few from school here and there. But this semester which I thought was gonna be a great year and I would pass with great grades didn't go as well as I had hoped.
Two months ago at the beginning of February my mom said she had done a self examination and found a lump in her right breast. Now we were hoping it wasn't what we thought it was, even though we knew what it was we just hoped it wasn't that fact. So she went to the doctor and had a mammogram and just was we thought, it was breast cancer. Which after that is when the talk of surgery to have a mastectomy began and when stress levels rose that I couldn't keep my focus on my classes that much.
I have been going between Vacaville and Fairfield for weeks now helping my mom get to her doctor appointments and pushing the wheelchair for her. And these appointments have gone on for over these past two months now, and there was talk earlier that if she had gotten the surgery earlier she wouldn't have survived the surgery since she has a heart condition too not just her COPD. And now after we get done with all the major doctor appointments that discuss different things and asking for tests and all that jazz. My mom had an appointment this morning with her doctor. I didn't go with her because I was tired and slept in and she didn't mind if I didn't go with her since she didn't mind that I didn't go.
She just came out a few minutes ago to tell me that her doctors appointment is again this week. But not for the usual talks, this one is so discuss the date of her surgery which is going to happen most likely next week. Now it's still a risk because she had heart surgery, no they didn't go directly to her heart, they went through an area a little below her abdomen. And she had two stints put in her heart to open the veins a little more, and after that surgery she was put on blood thinners. And if you know about blood thinners then you would know that even the smallest cut can make you bleed a ton. And not to mention you can bruise a little easier.
But with the surgery being possibly next week, it's still a risky surgery, since she only had the stints put in less than a month ago. So I'm actually pretty nervous about her getting the surgery now, since there's a 50/50 chance she could make it through it or she won't. I just hope she does.
