This is the beginning of the beginning

Surgery tomorrow, need to be there extra early because they will shoot me up with this radioactive dye, which will let them know where the majority of the cancer is in the lymph nodes.
Surgery at noon. I am not sure how I feel about all of this. I have so many things going through my mind it is hard to sort them out.
When they called me to ensure I knew what do before the surgery they said:
"Fast from midnight lotions, perfumes or make jewelry."
I will have to admit, the only thing I really heard was "no lotions, or makeup"
I go into surgery feeling like they will rip me all apart...and I cant even make myself up to feel good about it.
I would like to apologize for anyone who visits before surgery...if I smell or scare you with my pasty while skin....just a warning, so don't be scared.

Here it goes....

This too shall pass...and
Come what may, and love it.
