The First Day of the Rest of My Life

I am now resting at home. My surgery was yesterday, and I cannot say enough positive things about the daVinci robot for surgery. I really feel good, and will have to force myself to not overdo it. Unfortunately, some of my family has a tendency to allow me to overdo it (i need to stop making things look easy). I am sitting here just 30 hours after surgery, looking at two baskets of laundry and thinking that I should fold it.
So, about the surgery. The news, so far, is really good. My surgeon said that, to the naked eye, they got all of the cancer, because it appeared to be confined to the uterus. I will not really breathe a sigh of relief until the pathology report comes back in about 3 days (ovaries and lymph node samples). I am very optimistic, and am sure that it will be good news. But I am also prepared if the battle isn't over yet. Either way, I feel so incredibly blessed and thankful. I know so many people who aren't lucky enough to get cancer-light! And there are so many other struggles that people face. I am humbled by the blessings that I have received, especially the beautiful family and friends that I have.
Until later, I wish all of you the best that life has to offer, and I thank you for stopping by and for your prayers.

PLEASE don't overdo anything!!!

So glad to hear all went well, now all that's left is to fully recuperate! Wow, now I'm really interested in all the robotic surgery -- wish they had something like that when I had my back surgery... lol!!! Wouldn't had to go through all that dreadful therapy!!! Yuk!

Sincerely, I knew all would go well... God is good!
