One year post diagnosis

It was one year ago tomorrow that I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  It is not an anniversary I will celebrate.  (I will wait until Feb 20 to celebrate one year of being cancer free.)  Tomorrow I will have a “normal” day.  My new normal.  I will go to work.  I will get a haircut (more like a hair fix as there is not a load to cut)  I will go to physical therapy (dealing with some lymphedema issues where I was radiated).  I will take Twix for a walk.   I will cook dinner for Scott.  I will take Vitamin B12, E, D, evening primrose oil, turmeric, Osteobalance, oral lamisil, anastrozole , peppermint green tea and CALM (to keep the cancer from coming back and to combat the side effects of the drugs to keep cancer from coming back).  I will check in on new friends and old.  I will text Fiona and talk to David.  I will live my life.

    I can’t decide if my favorite part of this is that you will have a normal day or that you are going to cook dinner for me. What’s it gonna be (that might help me decide)?

    It sounds like the perfect way to spend your day. I am sure you are forever changed as you greet each morning. It’s the little things, isn’t it, that make our lives so precious. Enjoy, Loretta.

    What a battle you have fought, Loretta! I remember a few years ago when everyone wanted you to audition for a slot on Survivor! Who knew that you were about to show everyone exact ally what type of survival winner you are! You are amazing!
