In my seach for recovery information I found Holly who writes a blog The Coconuts Head Cancer Survival Guide about the realities of having and being treated for Breast Cancer.
Another post, In Sickness and In Health, by Taylor Made Ranch Homestead written by Tammy Taylor tells of her breast cancer journey.
My Personal Cancer Journey
Thank you to the BC Cancer Society Volunteer Drivers, the Nurses, Radiologists and Doctors for their kindness and careful treatments.
Thank you to my dear sister for taking me to my first chemo treatment, for her phone calls and her cheerful 'appointments tote' loan and the celebration bouquet when I finished radiation.
Thank you to my dear husband for driving me to distant appointments and for taking over the reins over the past several months.
Thank you to my friend D who kept my booths looking wonderful all spring and summer and into fall. Thank you to my friend V for coming over to clean and garden when things got to be too much. Thank you for the bouquets and blueberries, listening ears and cards from friends.
I took back the reins again in early September as I found my energy returning. I am painting small furniture again, decorating for the fall a bit, writing a post once a week (I wrote most of the posts that published during the last 8 months 'ahead'). When I was feeling well enough I would write and date them for times I knew I would not be up to sitting up/thinking/writing. It worked and gave me something to work toward. A positive goal. Thank you to my blogging friends for their kind comments and prayers.
Awareness. Time. Changes.
Get your mammogram.
Check your breasts for any changes.
Be aware of your self.
