It's been a couple weeks since I've posted. Most of you that read this already know that I had my surgery on the 18th and I'm waiting for an appointment to have a new CT scan and see what if anything is left in my liver and how successful the surgery was. I'm still in a bit of pain, more of a discomfort where the drain was, but other than that I seem to be healing nicely.

The worst thing is the depression. I have been fighting it all week, as has my husband. I finally decided I needed help and called my onc yesterday to have him give me anti-depressants even though it's not as bad as it was the beginning of the week. I'm still having trouble getting excited over the grandkids coming in two weeks and I've been looking forward to that for months. I just don't want to do anything. I guess though I've been lucky I haven't been depressed before this.

I'll update you all when I get an appointment for the CT scan. He wanted to see me within 4 weeks and it's been almost 2 already.

Thank you all for your prayers and cards. They help a lot. I don't think I could get through this without them.


  1. Oh Millie, I am still praying for you. I know that waiting is so hard. Combine that with not feeling good and it is no wonder you are dealing with some depression. You are allowed:) I hope that those grandkids will bring that smile back to your heart. They always manage to do that for me. Blessings to you.

  2. Millie, I totally agree with Roxanne - you have been through so much - it is no wonder at all that you are feeling depressed. The diagnosis in itself is depressing. Add to that, all of the invasive procedures - it is hard on people! I am praying for you. Hope your "scanxiety" is relieved soon as well! Hang in there my friend!

  3. Beautiful blog, Congratulations!!!
