This week I will celebrate two full years since the completion of my treatment. I am still living cancer-free. I'm healthy and PREGNANT to boot. Who knew?
As I approached this landmark week, I found myself wondering what had become of my little breast cancer blog. As it turns out, it still gets a little bit of traffic, the occasional visitor and even a comment from time to time. This inspired me to return and add a post--ideally I'm back for the long haul.
So, two years out of treatment and a year and a half since my last post--what have I been doing?
-Started a new job
-Got a promotion
-Have supported my husband who is rapidly approaching his last semester of law school
-Got a dog
-Grew my hair back out (shoulder length now)
-Am in the midst of house shopping
-Got pregnant (due in May 2012)
Basically, normal stuff. My point? Life goes on and the day does come when you make it through a full 24-hour period without ever once thinking about cancer.
That said, the big "C" has been on my mind as of late due to the fact that I know three friends, all my age, who are fighting cancer at the moment--two themselves, and the other as a co-survivor for her younger (yes, I said younger) brother. I simply hope that my experience can provide them with a touch of hope. Cancer can and does lose...every single day.
This brief blog was not a fluke. More to come...I promise. I know several women who "mommy-blog" and I know a few who "survivor-blog." Perhaps I'll try a combination for a while...
