It dawned on me this past weekend that it had been 1 year since my journey with cancer began.
One year. Wow.
Now, technically, I wasn't diagnosed until April 5th, but the surgery which triggered all of the events was on February 25, 2011. A surgery and day that made all the difference.
So, a year? How do you measure a year? If you were the cast of RENT, you would do it in song.
If you're me, strictly referring to the cancer journey:
- 4 Surgeries
- 8 Chemo treatments
- 30 Radiation treatments
- Too many blood draws & doctors appointments to count
The best number was the smallest:
- 1 more birthday for everyone I love.
