Today I had the honor

of being a guest poster at Being Cancer.  The site has an amazing amount of information, blogs and useful tools for anyone dealing with any aspect of this issue.  Dennis Pyritz runs the site (in addition to working as an RN) and I am very impressed at how he is able to corral so much information without it being overwhelming.  If you ever have the need to visit, I highly recommend stopping by.  The site is also permanently listed under 'the blip' blog roll to the right.

The post of choice, if you are curious,  had to do with my decision to have the DIEP as a means of reconstruction and how it was truly the right choice for me.  If you haven't had the chance, you can read the original post here or on Dennis's website.  Should anyone be curious, as it has now been 3 weeks (nearly to the minute) since I was rolled into recovery, and I am still just as satisfied with my decision, if not more so.  Each day, the swelling in my abdomen goes down and the feeling and sensation in my breast increases.  I still have some pain and exhaustion (to be expected), but it is nothing I can't handle.  

I've said it before and I'll say it again:  one of the best decisions I've ever made.  I will forever be grateful for the support of my family and friends and, of course, the talents of my amazing plastic surgeon. I never thought I would type that particular phrase, but considering the situation, amazing might even be an understatement...

So, so happy for you!!
AND, love the lightsav(b)er! Woot!

Do you usually do this? I mean, guest posting? I think doing this would inspire more and more women today to voice out their opinions. The fight against the disease can become more intense because of this.
