I am home.

I have lots to tell, but not a lot of energy to tell it with. By the time I get done with all I am supposed to do (breathe into my breathing toys, go for walks, stretch my arm, etc), I am exhausted. I don't do anything fast, but I do it. Thank God the kids are with my parents this week because I am a sad sack. Holy cow. So, here is the important news - the pathology came back. Out of the six "abnormalities" that they removed, three were cancer. With this news, we go to the left as soon as I have no pain on the right. Thank you for all your emails, thoughts, prayers, beautiful comments, etc. Grant and Mom printed them out for me and read them to me in the hospital. I continued to be amazed at how amazingly supportive everyone is with words, actions, and love. I hope someday I can shower someone like that - it feels pretty good and makes me believe I cannot lose. Enjoy the sun - Ang

Ang, thank God you are getting better. We were also checking your blog every 3 or 4 hours to know how you were doing. Thank you for the update. Nothing like home, right?

Angie, Warrior Princess:
Your energy and prowess are down from this surgery, yet you are up and walking? You slay me with your strength and determination. And I hope you are feeling a little better each day. During this difficult recuperation and in the face of another surgery, know that you are on all of our minds and in our hearts. Let that love lift you up a little if you need extra support this week. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Am glad to know that you are home and the surgery was less invasive with not removing the lower lobe and the smaller incision.
Continue with your `toys` to help with your breathing.
I will call grandma and let her know.
take care my friend
Love Peggy
