We went down to celebrate my 1 year anniversary. One year ago today, a very wise and caring doctor had to tell me I had cancer-Hodgkins Lymphoma to be exact. One year ago today, I clicked on Blogger and started blogging about my diagnosis.
This past year has been filled with many down moments. Surgeries. Chemotherapy. Radiation. Injections, Doctors. Hair Loss. But it has also been filled with some of the best up moments. Friends. Phone Calls. Letters. Family. Support. Prayers. Even with all the trials I was experiencing, I had a lot of hope and faith that I was going to come out on the other side of this diagnosis.
I know this sounds absolutely weird to many, but this blog helped get me through this past year. The blog opened up an avenue for me to write (is it called writing if you are typing?) down my thoughts. I can not tell you all how much it helped!! And the fact that you all read it and stuck with me, I say thank you. I have "met" some awesome people this year. Gotten some strength from some of you. Total distraction from others. And inspiration from a few others.
Today's post is my 200th! That is a lot of chatting! I have survived one year! I will survive more. Thank you all for the peace I feel today.
