Well, even though I got "the call" one year and 6 days ago, I had my first surgy - the lumpectomy - one year ago today. Although I wasn't really cancer free at that time, I really feel this is one of the milestones that mark my anniversaries (I know there'll be so many more!). In fact, this time last year was such a crazy time with DH already living in NJ while the boys and I were in VA. We were also getting ready to move in 8 days, selling one house and driving to NJ to buy another.
I guess this was such a crazy time that I think it might always be my "anniversary date." However, my double mastectomy wasn't until early May (the 6th), so I'll probably feel that as a very significant date, as well. It's just so hard to put into words how grateful I am to be able to go on each day. Today I had my monthly lupron shot and sat in the infusion waiting room and felt such gratitude for the things I DO have.
I really appreciate all of you and your support over the last year. THANK YOU!
The finger of God touches your life when you make a friend.
