Cancer Update: One Year Later and Still Kicking!



One year ago I was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. You can find my original post here. If you get riled by f-bombs...probably don't read it. Actually, just stop reading this post too. I might throw a few in later. I like to keep my options open.

So, It’s been a while since I posted one of these cancer updates because, well, if there’s anything else to focus on besides cancer, I chose to focus on that! J

What has happened cancer-wise in this past year? Well, let’s see… diagnosis, surgery, chemo, being bald, a nasty infection, hospitalization, more surgery, radiation (which caused, what I like to call “localized zombie skin”), and even more surgery. Not that any sane person would think otherwise, but having cancer fucking sucks.

Last week I had my year check-in MRI, and everything came back clear!
 
Now, what does this mean for me? Well, I still have a lifetime of check-ups, medication, and that nagging worry at the back of my mind that my cancer is back. Also I can’t say, “I have cancer!” when I don’t want to do something, or to guilt my husband into doing dishes. But…upside…

 
I NO LONGER HAVE CANCER!!!!

I know I often babble on about the awesome YA community, but everyone has been so supportive, it’s hard not to. My family, my friends, even acquaintances of acquaintances were all amazing.

 So that’s what’s up with me…and fingers crossed this is the last cancer update from me. Ever.
