So here we are at the end of the 6th month of the year. In less than an hour the year will be half over. There have been days that have been longer than others and days when I felt the day would never end but in fact this year is just flying by.
It’s been 263 days since I walked into the ER on October 11, 2010
It’s been 250 days since I left the hospital for rehab
It’s been 245 days since I left rehab and headed home
It’s been 161 days since I got the all clear from the neurosurgeon that the blood clot in my brain was in fact gone
It’s been 112 days since my biopsy came back negative and I learned that the cancer had not spread
It’s been 102 days since my 2nd skin graft
It’s been 3 days since my last radiation treatment
The journey has been long and there’s still farther to go but I look back and I realize I’ve come so far. When I look back I’m amazed at how much time has passed and how far I’ve come. In the coming weeks I have to have my eyes checked for any damage from the radiation treatments, see my Plastic Surgeon for a follow-up appointment, meet my Dermatologist to be checked for any more skin cancer, see my Oncologist for a follow-up appointment, have an MRI to check for any residual cancer (this one terrifies me), and see my neurosurgeon for a follow-up appointment. But I’ll cross those bridges when I come to them. Tonight I’m going to lay my head down and sleep.
Thank you so much for stopping by every day, I love you all. To my new readers from Comment Hour thanks for dropping by last night. I hope you come back often to read and comment.
With much love,
