I could use a wish right now

Yep, they're mine, well at least for the next 24 hours........

I wish I was anxious for something else.........but I am not. I wish I didn't have to wake up early, just to wait, but I do. I wish my loved ones, friends, and family weren't going to be going through this....the waiting, the worrying, the bullshit.

I will wake up tomorrow and begin the process of having surgery. I should be in surgery around 1:00pm, with surgery around 4-4 1/2 hours, then 2 hours of recovery, then I will be in the hospital for the night (cross your fingers it is only one).

Lots of love to those who are sending all the positive vibes my way. I embrace them all!!!!

I am tired, I am ready..........goodnight.

Now I lay me down to sleep,

I hope tomorrow they don’t cut too deep.

I would like to make it through the night,

To wake up and fight this fight.


  1. I will be there to fight with and for you.

  2. Good luck tomorrow Dori, you will be in my thoughts all day especially after 1pm. Your strength and courage is truly inspiring, thank you for sharing this difficult journey with us. I hope your recovery process goes smoothly!

  3. You don't know me, but I found your blog though a link on Patti's FB. My daughter was born ten years ago tomorrow. July 14 is a damn fine day, a perfect day to start the rest of your life. You are strong, beautiful and I'm sending you some sincere cancer ass-kicking vibes for tomorrow. You can do this.

  4. Hiya Dori, I just read your journey up to this point. I hadn't been paying much attention to posts on FB lately and realized what you posted today about your surgery in the AM. I miss ya girl, working with you was awesome. You are so, so strong. I know you will fight with everything you have, I wouldn't expect anything else. I went to a "hat party" for a friend not long ago that was going thru chemo after having a double mastectomy, we all brought her hats to wear, it made it fun for a few hours. I will be thinking about you <3 Mary J

  5. I'm thinking of you. I can picture you up on cancer's shoulders, punching it in the head with all you've got. And you know what? In my vision, you're totally kicking its butt.
