Surgery date

September 15, 2015

Today we got the surgery date: 10 days away, September 24.

I had no idea what an emotional flood it would be. It is not the relief I expected; it is deep, deep grief. I am going to lose a body part. Ten days left of being whole.

This feeling has zero to do with cancer and everything to do with loss.
