Wednesday, 12 July, makes one year of being cancer free.
It is also the one year anniversary of losing my boobs. Yep, being cancer free came along with their demise. Funny thing is that I really don’t miss my boobs. These new ones are pretty awesome and they are cancer free.
It seems like all of this happened a decade ago. There are days that I have forgotten what it was like not to have this cancer journey.
This anniversary brings the fast track treadmill we’ve been on to somewhat of a close. There are only two infusion rounds left ending 14 August. I will follow up with a series of six-month checkups from early 2017 surgeries. Afterwards, I go into a semiannual and annual maintenance status.
Moreover, I will have my deportation soon! Deportation means the removal on my chemo port. The port allows access for my drugs without having to stick an arm vein at each treatment. I am planning on cleaning the port and using it as a paperweight.
I asked Richard how he wanted to celebrate this anniversary. He said with prayers of thanks. I think that is a great way to start the day.
Leaders … how do you mark anniversaries? How do you celebrate the end of a project / event? What are you thankful for and how do you acknowledge that thankfulness?
