Thanks, I'm enjoying my anniversary! (busy per usual with life in general which is just how I like it)
Apologies for not seeing the question earlier...
My little chemo baby "pudding" in my picture is the one in the white with blue polka dots dress (Lauren). The other is just plain rotten (Kathryn in the hot pink). But their mommy loves them both and is exasperated by them equally, just in different ways.
Wow, congratulations! Hitting that anniversary must feel fantastic!
"Imagine that in front of you is a castle. That's where you want to be. But surrounding that castle is a moat, full of piranha. The only way to get into Sexy Abs Castle is to swim across the moat and let the little fish painfully chew off hunks of fat. The real situation is exactly like that, only the swim will take years." tinyurl.com/piranha-moat
This Labor Day weekend marks the 5th anniversary of my biopsy and results which followed a week later that I had cancer. September 19th is the day I had my mastectomy. I have been declared NED for the last -- just about 5 years. I officially go for my testing in December again.
I cannot tell you the relief it is to see such a marker as 5 years out. Having Stage 3 cancer along with having to deal with being pregnant at the time of chemo ... and the delays the pregnancy imposed upon the chemo schedule... and the negativity of a certain surgeon who was POSITIVE that I wouldn't survive 5 years unless I terminated...
Well, cannot tell you how much I wish to tell him HA! I knew in my heart that there had to be a reason for all this and it would be ok and I guess the proof is now in the pudding. My pudding turned 4 in March and is now a big-time 4K student with attitude to prove it.
YEAH! Gimme 5 and then 5 more and then 5 more and then 5 more and then 5 more.... keep 'em coming until I'm too old to care anymore!!!!!
