Priceless

Since beginning this journey in mid-July, I have had approximately:

2 mammograms

3 ultrasounds

1 biopsy

1 MRI

1 PET scan

1 EKG

1 port placement surgery

1 chest X-Ray

6 chemotherapy treatments

6 hydration treatments

11 shots

14 blood draws

20 doctor’s visits

I can’t pretend that this has not been a challenging 6 months. I have learned a lot about myself, about cancer and about the world around me. I have laughed hard, cried a lot and loved like crazy over these months.

When this journey first began, the end of 2015 felt so far away. I wondered how the time would pass and how quickly. I wondered if I was strong enough to see the end of the treatments. I questioned my own abilities.

Now that the end of the year has arrived, I have a new sense of peace. I know that there is still a long road ahead of me but this phase of the journey has come to an end. I will start 2016 with the chemo treatments behind me and that, my friends, is priceless.

Here’s to a fabulous new year!
