Yeah for 2010!

I am on the mend after surgery. The surgery itself was very successful and fingers crossed the cancer is gone! My recovery is also going well. I've had all of the stitiches and staples out. The worst part has been the donor site for the skin graft which is on the top of my right thigh. VERY painful! On the bright side, it has certainly kept me from thinking about how much under my arm hurts.

I'm still very restricted in what I can do and spend most of the time propped up in bed. However, once there and with the pillows arranged just right I am very comfortable and have been reading tons and watching food shows.

I really appreciate everyones calls, notes and gifts. It really helps me stay positive knowing you guys are there for me.

I hope everyone has a glorious New Years and that 2010 is spectacular for us all!



  1. Monique, that is wonderful news! I'm glad the surgery was a success and that you are on the mend.

    Here's hoping for a super speedy recovery!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Great to hear that you are doing well!

    Happy New Year's, and keep up the good recovery.


  3. I am thrilled that you are home and are doing well. I hope 2010 looks brighter. Happy New Year. Danielle

  4. Monique
    So glad to hear things are progressing well for you. Here's hoping 2010 will allow us some time to get together and catch up.

  5. Monique and family,

    Terrific news! Another reason to celebrate and give thanks. Now we will pray for a speedy recovery. At least you are likely to stay inside and recoop with it being SO cold outside. I can't wait to see you at swim practice....I know, I am jumping the gun a bit.

    Take care of yourself!


  6. What have you been reading? Have you read Malcolm Gladwell's books. I hear Janet Evanovich books are hilarious.

    Glad to hear you are on the road to recovery Monique. When you are feeling better we will have to visit with you, Kelly and Conor.
