Reunited and it feels so good

Posted on

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!!!

xo,

Jessie
