Slowly my knuckles came into view, my pudgy hands giving them up! Then the tendons in my hands. Finally appearing to a rave review - the veins in my hands.
Other things are happening as well. Things are sagging, fat holders with less and less fat. I even have wings, instead of upper arms - they were chubby, but still firm. That is history - for this time. Changed body bits.
I am encouraged. Those changes are not as pretty, but I can still celebrate. These changes weren't unexpected, and I will endure until the end. Look at my scoop neck sweater. It is important to celebrate all changes! My girlfriend in Oshawa gave me this sweater, it is a women's Large - (not a plus size! YAY!) and if I tuck it in, I can get away with it not riding up on my midriff. Feeling positively feminine these days.
I found an interesting article on a link between ovarian cancer and obesity. I located it on the Science Daily website. As my pals know, I did struggle with Ovarian cancer and treatment from November 2007 until after the chemotherapy in 2008. I have been cancer free since the surgery on January 2008 until now - three years and three months. We can't do things like this alone.
I had the constant encouragement of Lynda A., who not only helped me, but took out staples, stitches, etc. She is the best friend EVER. Helping both of us, was Jesus, not forgotten for a second. I have been blessed with no relapse and am visiting my oncologist every 6 months instead of every 3 months!
