Lymph is Good
chronicles the journey of an active 30-something Dallas-ite trying to keep her head up while grappling with primary lymphedema.


Ok, let’s get real. The excitement is still there. But the nerves are definitely in full force. The thought, "What if I don't make it?!" is a real one. Another: "Ya know, a lot of people go into surgery for one thing and come out with a laundry list of other things." Another: "Have I really done everything that I could have done to improve this condition? Am I really on my last resort?" That last thought was the worst. It really is hard to say that I have done "everything." 

What I know is that I have the rest of my life in front of me. Surgery can only make the rest of my life living with this condition better, not worse. So, I might as well try it. If for nothing else, the state of my condition will be exactly as it was before... right?
