A month! So fast or so slow ???
Today marks one month of my cancer diagnosis. As I ponder to think upon the past 30 days I really can't decide if it went fast or incredibly slow... I think the answer is BOTH!
So much has happened... including 2 ER Visits, 3 rounds of chemo, 1 surgery, a scare of another cancer ( I decided not to share with all but last week , during a doctor visit, they found a small lump in my leg ... quickly sent to Biopsy... very hard 2 hours but Thank God it was just FAT! I loved hearing that word: FAT! FAT! FAT!)
I have learned how to wear scarves and earrings... still learning how to listen to my body and deal with the exhaustion....
I have learned the names of so many meds.. including the close to 20 that I take every day....
I shaved my head and thought I looked good with a short hair cut... I lost all my hair and I am not sure how cute I look BOLD!
Met some wonderful people, reunited to lost friends... got even closer to the ones that I thought was impossible to get closer to!
Met Malu, Alexandra's daughter , who is precious in every way.. she is HOPE ! And we will always be connected in some coincidence of dates...
I am still learning that "taking a day at the time".. and "enjoying every minute" is a very difficult task that requires lots of discipline and patience... but.. I am still learning and I do have a long way to go so... I will get there!
A picture of Leonardo, during a glorious Spring day, ... and he is my daily reminder that I WILL get better , because we have so many things to do in this wonderful life that waits ahead of us!
