I have mixed emotions about today. It was one year ago today that my world went sideways—I learned the cancer was back…not just back but in the worst way possible. It’s not a milestone I had intended or hoped to ever mark. Well, if you’ve got lemons, make lemonade.
Today is a good day because it’s a victory of sorts and I’ll take it. After speaking with my radiation oncologist last April, I learned all about how bad the recurrence site was and, in general, my prognosis was relatively grim. It’s still not the best, but I’ve made it one year when I didn’t even think I’d have that. And not only that, I’m still functional – relatively speaking. 😋
I intend to keep living every day, laughing and thriving!
