But so far this week reminds me of the old Barry Manilow song called; "It's just another New Years Eve, another night like all the rest."
I hit my five year mark. I was diagnosed on December 15th, first surgery was the 23rd, and the total masectomy was on December 30th. I really was hoping that I would feel more relieved, more secure, more whatever. But no. I lost several friends this year to this wretched disease. Two of my friends were diagnosed soon after they hit that "five year mark" so I tread cautiously.
On a brighter note for Christmas I received the new Precious Moment breast cancer figure from my Tony and my children. And from my sister I received a pretty breast cancer survivor bracelet. Seems my five year mark was on a lot of family's members mind. Of course it does help that my time is tracked with Jordan's age.
And my favorite gift. I got one of those steam cleaners that you see on TV. It cleans everything. I so love to clean. and so does Jordan. Tony just looks at her and says that there is no doubt she is my child.
Happy New Year. Who knows maybe this is the year for us.
