Wednesday 8th May - Day three of Week in the Life with Ali Edwards
Well what can I say about Wednesday. This was very far from a normal average day in my life, but I'm so glad it happened in WITL and I get to document it. I'm still processing so won't write too much of the day, just the basics!
I was up and out the door bright and early to get breakfast out the way before my first meeting at 8.30, talking about a task that I'm NOT excited about doing but will push my comfort zone and I'll learn from it. Then I went straight into the second meeting of the day. It wasn't what I was expecting and I'm going to find it hard to focus for the rest of the day.
Lunch was a cold buffet bento box. My favourite week day lunch.
I managed to get a few things done in the afternoon, and then I had a meeting with the boss where I was told my future with the company. It was good news for me but not so great for others in our department. A real tough day!
After work I head straight to the QEII hospital for the results of my breast biopsy. The news here is also good, the sample they took shows a benign result, however the surgeon still wants to remove the mass so I will have surgery on the 6th of June. I can't imagine how hard it is for woman to hear a cancer diagnosis.
The drive home is hard and I wish I could just magic myself there. I am emotionally exhausted and the roads seem to stretch out before me with no end in sight. But finally I turn into my parking space and breathe a massive sigh of relief that I am home.
Stuart pours me a large gin and we sit and chat through the days events. The stress, the fear, the anxiety and the release.
We have a late dinner (and laugh out loud at his antics while I try take a timer photo of us dishing up!), shower and bed.
Aah Wednesday, you were not what I expected but I will remember you in my WITL album. I will remember that there is real tough stuff we need to deal with and it's part of our story. This day and these challenges are part of MY story.
Bring on Thursday!
