I read a book called "Pretty is What Changes" by Jessica Queller.  It was eye opening, and really helped to confirm I was making the right decision. 

I know it probably sounds like I'm constantly seeking this confirmation... but I am.  I really do sometimes step back and think "what am I doing?  This is crazy"  But then reading this story of this woman watching her mother deal with ovarian cancer after a battle with breast cancer and dealing with her BRCA mutation, really helped to solidify it.  I don't want to go through that.  I don't want my children to watch me go through that.  

I've been blog crazy about this.  There are a number of women going through this same thing that are sharing their stories and experience in this format and I've been reading all I can find.  Then I also found this book (which I bought for the Nook app on my phone).


  1. I like the clock. Is this so I won't forget to bring you something in the hospital? I haven't received your list yet...

  2. The clock is maybe so hopefully it won't come as a big surprise to me when suddenly it's 24 hours away!

    I'm thinking about a list. I already have someone committed to bringing me Baja Fresh one day for lunch. And you may know that is one thing I do like about st lukes - the extensive menu that I only order 2 things from (but I really like). But a kids meal from iceberg might be very nice. Hmm I'll work on this.
