This mass I have in my breast is a little over 4cm. No time to mess-around with alternative therapies… we gotta get this sucker out of me.
So the surgery date is April 9th.
This means I have to close Sarah’s Place for about 2 weeks while I recover from surgery.
Sarah’s Place last day open will be SATURDAY APRIL 6TH!
I thought about having other people work for me while I’m recouping and I’ve had lots of people volunteer their time … but I need to focus on healing and I can’t be worried about what’s going on when I’m not there. I’d like to thank my landlords at Market Square for being so cool about me closing temporarily.
2 weeks after my mastectomy we will get the pathology reports back and then we’ll know if I have to do radiation/chemo. What willÂ happen after that … we will decide later. Right now I need to focus on the surgery.
Everyone keeps asking me what they can do to help? It sounds crass but #1 thing you can do is buy something from Sarah’s Place. Either in person or online at store.govegan.net. I gotta pay my bills and closing for 2 weeks off is going to hurt so if you feel like helping â€¦ buy something.
**Vancouver ONLY!** If you live in/near Vancouver â€“ and do an online order at Sarahâ€™s Place between April 6-8th and use the coupon code: FORKCANCER you will get free shipping. All orders will be shipped en masse from Sarahâ€™s Place to Nice Shoes and you can pick up your order from Nice Shoes when it arrives.
As for the surgery – I’ll try to keep you updated as best I can … According to the paperwork we got from the hospital I will be “legally impaired” for 24 hours after the surgery so I better give my iPhone to Gerry so I don’t live-tweet something inappropriate from my hospital bed. 🙂
Love you guys.
