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!!!!!
