It's hard to believe that it's been a year - but a year ago today, I received my breast cancer diagnosis. Surgery, followed by 20 weeks of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation and lots of recovery - So we did a little celebrating last night at Pittsburgh Blue for my 50th Birthday and I my one year cancer anniversary. It was nice to get out and the food was delicious. We got some good family pictures as well.
I haven't updated in a while - so in a nut shell, I am doing OK. My body is taking a little longer to recover than I would like, so taking things one day at a time. I am mostly tired, and it doesn't take much to wear me out. It just takes planning, so that I am able to rest when I need to. My body is pretty good at telling me when it's time to slow down and when it needs to rest a while. My hair is growing back, mostly gray, but growing back. I am learning how easy it is to manage short hair, so it may just stay short for a while.
My next check up is scheduled for October 7th, so I have some scans and tests scheduled before then. I started Tamoxifen at my last check-up, and that is probably on the plan for the next 10 years.
Gregg and I spent a week in Door County at the end of August. It was nice to get away for a week and we are already planning our week for next week.
I will update again after my check up!
Have a great weekend!
Hugs and Love,
