2007: BUH BYE!
What a year. I found the new lumps Christmas of last year. I spent the entirety of 2007 in Cancerland.... a place I thought I was done with.
For someone as diligent as myself and as big a pest to doctors, it was such a shock that round two was discovered so late and required SO MUCH. Bilateral mastectomies, nine months of chemo that just ended, and next, radiation.
I never thought I could survive chemo again after 2001, and it scared me. I just wanted to get through it and prayed I would be able to manage it better than last time. I knew what was ahead of me so all I asked was to be able to go the distance.
It was a rough nine months and I had to really push myself. But I did it. I went the distance. It was a long hard fight and now it is done.
I know that rads won't be any joy ride, but I'm ready for them. I am stronger now and getting stronger every day... because I found out something in 2007: I can do anything.
THIS sums up 2007 for me:
