Two years ago today I was diagnosed with cancer. Yes, that’s right those dreadful words. I can’t believe that it has already been two years since that day. What’s crazy is that I almost forgot it was coming up. I feel like that is a huge accomplishment for me. In addition to that I am pregnant with our second child due in June. Talk about miracles!! I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had an ovary removed, and yet here I am pregnant! That to me is a pretty amazing miracle.
I am thankful everyday for the outcome I received after my diagnoses. I live a pretty normal life these days. I feel fortunate to be living a normal life. I know that not everyone gets that opportunity. I don’t think being diagnosed with cancer in your life ever goes away but the trauma associated with being diagnosed does get easier as time passes.
So as much as I’d love to have beer to celebrate two years, I will cheers with my seltzer and wait five more months for that beer. Thank you to everyone who continues to support me and my family. This journey hasn’t been alone and appreciate all of you who have been there for us and continue to be there for us.
