Dimensional Embroidery

These are some practice pieces I have been doing.  All but the upper left hand one were done before my surgery.  The upper left hand one was done today.  They were mainly done using varying number of strands of DMC a few used brazilian thread.

Hurry up and wait again!

Still don't know about chemo etc.  Another test needs to be done on the tumor that was removed which will take 2 weeks.  With Thanksgiving next Thursday most businesses are also closed on Friday so my next appointment with my Oncologist is in 3 weeks to find out. 

 I will be doing hormone therapy but if needing chemo, the chemo gets done first.  They can't start it for another 3 to 4 weeks anyway as they want you completely healed up from surgery before starting.  So now Dec 11 is the day, appointment is in the morning.

CQJP2015 October block finally finished.

Managed to sew on some buttons and beads which finished the block off.

Might start on Nov block tomorrow depending on how much discomfort this causes.

Am still alive and kicking

Had my surgery and am recovering.  Haven't been working on any crafts yet.  Am hoping to do a little bit of stitching today.

Don't know about chemotherapy, radiation and/or hormone therapy yet.  Should find that out this Friday afternoon.

Will keep you posted.

Results - wait no more

We didn't know that he had a rush on the results.  We got them this afternoon.

The oncologist suspected that the breast cancer had migrated to my spine as I have been so stiff and sore then something showed up on a PET scan.  Turns out there is NO cancer in my spine.  I just have a wonky disc.

So I see the plastic surgeon on the 21st then he and the surgeon will set a date for surgery.

Hurry up and wait - again

MRI was this morning, results take about 2 business days so now get to hurry up and wait again.  It is the not knowing that is driving me crazy.
