OMG, I hugged my bestie for the first time in almost 2.5 years! I cannot even begin to tell you the tears that came when I opened my front door at 11am this morning. Courtney flew across the country to see me, and I am speechless. We haven’t seen each other since April 2014 when she moved back home.
I swear that I didn’t want to let her go the minute that she walked in the door! You never realize how much a person means to you until they move away or are gone. Courtney is my person who I love like a sister and is always there. There are no words and you know that I always have something to say!
Sadly I had to cut our morning visit short, because I had to go back to the doctor to check on my port wound. I could only get into the doc at 1:30 today, and had to take it before the weekend. I knew I would be a nervous wreck thinking something was wrong and end up in the ER. Thankfully all is good and I am healing nicely. The shitty part is that because of the chemo, everything takes 10x longer to heal. A stupid hang nail takes 2 weeks as opposed to 3 days. It is really fucking annoying.
I go BACK to the doctor on Monday, but to see my reconstruction doctor. I am kinda excited to see him, this is my final appointment before pre-op in a few months. No, I am not choosing DDD’s. We have a lot of questions, and I am starting to get nervous about recovery, but it is what it is.
On that note, I am going out to dinner- an ADULT dinner- for the first time in a hell of a long time. Can’t wait to catch up more with my bestie, what a great weekend!!!
