Now for some reflections. I want to talk about my beautiful and loving daughters. Jie Jie and Mei Mei are truly the light of my life. When you are facing a very difficult decision and a very long (12 hour) surgery you start to think about all the things that are important to you. My DH is my best friend and the one person in this world that I undeniably rely on to hold me up. He has been supportive throughout this past year in a way I never would have expected. Accompanying me to each and every key appointment. Never complaining. Always deferring to 'my' decision. But in his eyes I could see that he doesn't want to see me battle breast cancer with chemo and radiation - if I can avoid it. He has always insisted on being there for me before, during and after my surgery. I could never have asked for a better partner in life.
