My Next Fight

Well, I’ve been surprisingly quiet about this. I’ve been trying to process it all. But I’m putting it out there a little now because I can use all of your positive thoughts.

Some of you know I had a life threatening medical issue 11 years ago. I thought it was part of my past.

I found out Friday that it’s back, and worse. I’m seeing a Thoracic Surgeon Tuesday to find out more. What I do know is I will be having major surgery soon. I’m just not sure which one yet.

I don’t want to lose my arm, and more importantly, I don’t want to die. I’m trying to stay calm, but yes, I’m scared to death.

I’ve fought for everything my entire life. It’s never been easy, but I ALWAYS fight. And you bet your ass I’ll fight this too.

On Tuesday, I will be celebrating 17 years of sobriety – on the same day I find out what happens next with my arteries. Getting sober was a fight I still fight every day, so celebrating 17 years of that huge fight is pushing me to fight this next battle too.

I’m thankful for so much. My family, my friends, and my amazing boyfriend who is by my side and holding my hand.

Another fight for another day. Please send positive thoughts. Everything helps.
