Back in March I posted on this very blog about my struggles because of carrying the BRCA 1
+ genetic mutation.
I now have less than two weeks to go until I actually do something practical about it. I'm booked in to have a radical hysterectomy on December 4th. I appreciate all of your prayers and kind thoughts as I go through this mammoth event in my life.
It has been a fairly terrible year for me, and I am especially missing my Mum at this time, knowing how much of a great support she would have been for me.
I'm not looking forward to the pain of the operation and recovery time. I do however know in my heart of hearts that it's the right decision for me and for my family.
I choose to live my life without the constant nagging fear of ovarian cancer hanging over it. Oh, and won't life be grand without having to worry about menstruation! :)
