Diagnosis ⋆ Anniversary + more surgery


On Wednesday, 28th April 2021, I received my breast cancer diagnosis.

They had found one tumour in my right breast: grade 1 invasive carcinoma.*

*cancer was also later found in my left breast.

This was an image I found and made up with this logo when I was told at the start of April that I would need a hip replacement.

Yesterday, I confirmed dates for yet another surgery: this time for a total hip replacement.

I’m still kind of processing it all so there will probably be more posts as I get my head around it. At one stage, it was looking like surgery might literally happen on the anniversary of my cancer surgery and that was … a bit much.

Now, however, it will be done before the Winter Solstice, before my birthday.

Whilst I am a poor astrologer at best, I find it reassuring that my surgery will be a couple of days after the New Moon; to me, signifying New Beginnings.

I’m hopeful that this will be a new beginning with a new part and that from here, I can focus on this next phase of life – new role, post cancer, new hip (so that I can start doing all the things I used to enjoy doing like walking, art galleries, markets, theatre shows, swimming etc.

*if you are a better astrologer, please don’t come at me with doom and gloom, you don’t really get to pick dates.

*if you are wondering what the hell I’m talking about, read the two articles below:

If you want to read about my experience with cancer – blog links below. Blackberries and Perscribed Burning is probably my favourite at the moment.

Blogging through my anniversaries last year really helped.

Gratitude practice (again a collection of those kinds of posts below) and prayer really helped.

Mostly reblogging of other blogs that have resonated for me although Prayers for Chronic / Acute Illness is kind of a roundup post.
