“Ladies, and men too, “get your boobs checked.
As a breast cancer survivor who just underwent her 4th, and prayerfully her last breast cancer surgery 2 weeks ago today; get your boobs checked. My mammograms saved my life. It has been a long year and a half, but not nearly as long had I not been doing regular check ups. Breast cancer does not discriminate either. Woman, and Men need to do this. Blessings, Lisa 🎀

As I share this quote it is so applicable to me as anyone else in today’s day in age.
I am having to have another surgery (4th one) for complications with my breast implants from my breast cancer. This surgery is taking place next Wednesday. I am having to breathe deep, and pray often. Stop, drop, and pray!
This is not something I signed up for, and I was so ready to be back to feeling my normal. That is not the case, and when you have a flat tire you fix it. So that is what we are doing. 4-6 weeks of recovery, and Zoom meetings await me once again. Thanking God I am not in control, and He is! Courage!
“Attitude is contagious, is yours worth catching”?
So I figured it was time to share my heart. I haven’t had anything to write for quite sometime now. I had my 4th Breast Cancer Surgery 6 weeks ago. I didn’t even feel like sharing this with all of you. This was 4 very big surgeries in a year and half. I am tired, yet grateful. I am empty, yet full. I am just focusing on getting through the days, and trying hard to keep it simple.
I imagine I don’t really make sense. I have been posting photography so my blog does not become stagnant. I will be turning 48 in 2 months, and my body is having such a hard time bouncing back after this last surgery. I am not depressed, I am just tired. I am so grateful I did not have to have Chemotherapy, or Radiation. A double mastectomy was enough to mess with my already complex brain. Acceptance with my new body parts took me a year and a half. It was after this last surgery I finally found acceptance. I know without a doubt as much as I did not want to endure another surgery it was God’s will for this to happen. I am finally at peace with looking in the mirror, where I was horrified to look at myself before this last surgery. The mystery of God’s will never ceases to amaze me.
He knew what I needed, and what it would take for acceptance. I was in prayer, and literally on my knees begging God for this for so long. I wasn’t sure if it would come. I trusted He had a plan, and patience was crucial to my survival. As well working my recovery daily, because half measures I know avail me nothing. So I have stayed very vigilant in prayer, and my daily conscious contact with my very loving God.
So here I am tired, and not a single desire to write. I just figured I would share (it was about time). I always know God has his best no matter what. I had a flat tire, and He fixed it. Praise God! My life with my husband is feeling more like “us”, and I am feeling more like “Lisa”. All glory to God. Hopefully I will write again sooner than later. Blessings WP friends, God is so faithful this I know!
