I received good news, such very good news – my biopsy pathology came back clear – as in “benign”, as in: cancer free. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. It has meant so much to me, it is truly what carried me through what was an unexpectedly very trying time in the post cancer, potential-land-mind, landscape.
It has been quite a month, so much has happened (on all fronts: personal, work, music). It has been such an intense time on so many levels. I don’t even know where to begin . . . so perhaps I won’t
I learned something new last night – a term called “vague booking” which is apparently the posting of Facebook posts that really say nothing at all (are vague) but insinuate something exciting or mysterious or . . . whatever So, I guess I am going to “vague-blog” a bit.
Simply (or vaguely) put, the past six weeks or so have been challenging, wonderful, exciting, scary (nothing like spending over three weeks waiting on biopsy results), and did I say exciting? It has been a bit of a whirlwind and mostly in very good ways. The past six weeks have included some of the very best days of my life and sadly some very bad ones too (having friends get diagnosed is hard, so hard).
How is that for vague blogging?
So while I am cancer free, so many friends were diagnosed in just the past month. That has been particularly challenging. On the day I found out my good news: that my biopsy results were clear, a girlfriend of mine learned that her mom has breast cancer. And she is just one of, very sadly, way too many.
While I was waiting for my results, I was talking with newly diagnosed friends and telling them: “You can do it, I got through it and I am healthy now and you will be too”
It was hard to say that these past few weeks – not really knowing if the “I am healthy” part was still true. I hoped and prayed it would be true. I am so grateful. Now it is back to my life. I have a new perspective this time. I have become reacquainted with many things in the past couple of months that have been absent in my life since cancer found its way in to roost. It has been a wonderful time and I am excited about what the future holds.
So for now that is all. Oh, that and one of my favorite sunsets from the past couple of weeks:
I am so grateful for your continued prayers and support. It is so amazing and so wonderful. I am so, so very grateful.
Now I am off to see if I can convince a friend of mine that radiation won’t be the worst thing in her life. This is a much easier thing to do knowing that I am still cancer free.
I will be back here before “Pinktober” (blech) . . . so much to change, so much to do.
Much love and peace.
