Blogs > Ann DeMatteo's Why Us?

Since my breast cancer diagnosis on June 9, 2008, I have spent a fairly decent amount of time wondering "why me?" I would like to hear from you about your cancer stories. Let's create a dialogue of learning, sharing and hope.

Happy Valentine's Day

Dear Readers,
Happy Valentine's Day! Bob and I will truly be celebrating tonight as I got good news from my doctor yesterday. She said that my breast area is now cancer-free following its removal on March 4. I'll be writing about my mastectomy experience in Feb. 22's Register Living section.
Thanks for all your support and prayers.

Post No. 4

Hi Folks,
I hope that by the time I get to the operating room on Wednesday I will be calm and at peace. I have been very anxious about this surgery, primarily related to how freaked out I was in the recovery room after the last surgery. My surgeon said that I have no reason to worry about anesthesia or other surgery-related issues.
So, I'm going to spend the next 48 hours praying and accepting the prayers that all of you are bestowing on me.

Post No. 3

Just to continue, I have a ton of work-related things to finish before surgery on Wednesday. Did most of the house-related stuff, though I need to still vaccuum and dust. Ugh.

Getting Ready No. 2

Hi Folks,
I have a lot of support connected to getting better, and I really appreciate it.
I am very nervous about my pending surgery. I talk to my surgeon today and she said I have nothing to worry about!
More later.

Getting Ready

Hi Folks,
Among the things that I have to do before surgery is to make sure that my blog works OK. I have to file four things so that it can get straigtened out.
I'll be right back!
