Hi everyone- Recently, I found out that I have masses on my ovaries. My doctors say that it's probably not cancerous, but they can't rule it out completely. Since I have a strong family history of ovarian cancer (as well as other types), they are recommending a total hysterectomy. The surgery is scheduled for September 3rd, but there is a good chance it will be postponed because of the surge in COVID cases. The hospital where I'm receiving treatment is currently using some of their operating rooms as COVID overflow. I will have to leave work for a minimum of two weeks, and will need to limit my activities during recovery. Since I am the main cook in our household due to Holly's disability, this will be challenging. I'll need help. I truly appreciate any support, assistance, and any positive thoughts or prayers you send my way. Thank you so much!
Keep in mind that the dates for my surgery have a good chance of changing. Even though Holly and I are vaccinated, we are still being cautious we are both high risk. Surgery recovery will increase my risk, so I need to limit in-person contact.
