Sorry it's been a long time since I've checked in, but, well, there have been many changes in my life, to say the least.
I tend to be a very private person and I don't often share too much. But, given what I'm experiencing, and knowing that many others may be dealing with this, well, I may as well put it out there.
First of all, Hubby and I are no longer together. Our divorce was finalized last month. Yes, hard to believe. I now live in a new house and I'm starting over. Crazy, scary, weird.
These little guys are getting me through it:
Now, here's the kicker. And when I share this with you, I'm not asking for pity. I just want to tell you the truth. I learned the other day that I have breast cancer. If you recall from a few months ago, I had a scare after finding a lump in my breast, but the results were benign. Well, another one turned up during a follow-up visit and this time around I wasn't so lucky. So, I soon face chemo, mastectomy and radiation. Because of my age - 39 - they want to be aggressive and think the cancer I have will respond to this plan. Praying that will be the case.
So, that's why I haven't been posting much in the past few months and why I likely won't post frequently in the coming months. Again, I don't want for you to feel sorry for me. I am determined to beat this. I've joked with friends that I'm going to make cancer my bitch! Yeah, I said it! All I ask for are prayers and positive thoughts. It's going to be a tough journey, but I will make it through it and, God willing, come out better on the other side.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends! Hug your loved ones tight and tell them you love them. Live life to the fullest!
