How it's Going

 Okay so I took some time of to get some Christmas quilts made.  I did manage to get two tops made (no photos yet).  I was hoping to get lots done however things don't always work out as planned.

I was having some bladder problems and my doctor sent me to a Urologist.  She had me get a CT Scan and they discovered I have bladder cancer.  Wednesday I had surgery to remove the tumor.  I tell you I feel like a Mac Truck ran over me.  Each day gets better but I'm still pretty sore.

They left the catheter in and I will go Monday to the doctors to have the catheter removed.  Friday I go and see my doctor to see what's next.

Two years ago just before my birthday I found out I had breast cancer and had surgery the week after my birthday.  Now two years later just before my birthday I found out I have bladder cancer and a week later surgery.  Well I was talking with my daughter and we decided no more birthdays.  She and I will be gloriously 50 from now on.

I will keep you updated on whats happening and I will continue to read your blogs.  Hopefully I will be able to get back to sewing soon.

Hugs, Cathy

Cathy, I’m sorry to hear that you are once again facing cancer and the treatments you’ll need. I will keep you in my thoughts. I should have put the brakes on at my 50th - what a good idea that would have been. 🙂

Wow--I can see why you would decide on no more birthdays as the best option! Will keep you in my prayers for a full recovery!

I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues. Hopefully, your doc will find out everything is heading in a positive direction. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery.

I’m so sorry that you are having to go thru all this. Last February my children all came home to celebrate my 70th birthday. We decided to celebrate 2 days early on a Saturday night. On Sunday I woke up not feeling great a few hours later I ended up in the emergency room and put on a ventilator! The next day I woke up and it was my birthday. I had double pneumonia! Spent a week in the hospital and got to go home. I was home for a week and ended up back in the emergency room with congestive heart failure. Spent another week in the hospital. This year on my birthday we are having a do over and I’m going to try really hard not to get sick.😂 Hugs,

I'm so sorry you are facing cancer a second time and all the stress and exhaustion that must go along with it. I hope you heal fast from the surgery!

HI Cathy, I am so sorry, but glad you had the cancer removed. Praying now for a fast recovery!!!

Needledmom said...

I agree…..no more birthdays. I hope healing goes well and you’ll be back stitching soon.

Lori said...

Oh no! Cathy I'm so sorry! I hope and pray the surgery was all you needed to get rid of the cancer.

Oh Cathy, what awful birthday news both times around. You are well on your way having finished your surgery. I wish you a speedy recovery and hope that they were able to get out all the cancer during the surgery.

Oh I am so sorry. I agree with you - no more birthdays, just let them sail by. I wish you a speedy recovery my friend.

Dear Cathy, so sorry. Hope you get well soon. Best wishes and a big hug.

What sad news! I hope you're continuing to feel better and that you get good news from your urologist (as in, no major procedures, etc.) It's amazing how a surgery can lay us so low for such a long time.
I agree, not more birthdays is a great plan!
Take care.
