Cancer is isolating…

I had typed up this long post, then deleted it. I’m all about truth on this blog. Real, raw, truth. But I felt like the post was too “woe is me” when I feel anything BUT that.

The gist of it was that I spent a lot of time during my cancer treatment alone. A lot of time. Brad had to work, he obviously couldn’t stay home with me all the time, so I was alone a lot when I was home sick. I was alone for several of my chemo treatments. I was alone a lot in the hospital, too.

It was what it was.

So in short (very short), when you go through something like this, you find out who your friends are, and I am extremely grateful for the ones I have.

Hello there 👋🏻

I apologize for the lack of posts here lately. It’s partially because I don’t have much to say, and partially because I have been insanely busy. My classes began earlier this month and work has been keeping me busy, particularly from having to play catch up from the hurricane that never came.

Today is October 1st. Wow! I can’t believe it’s October. I feel like I say that at the beginning of every month, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Time flies. It’s my niece’s birthday. Happy b-day, Ev.

Anyway, I’ve got a couple ideas for some posts so I’ll try to spread them out over the next couple weeks since my next medical update won’t be until October 15th, since that’s my appointment with Dr JB and Dr H to talk surgery and stuff. I’ll have drains again…did I mention that after my last appointment? Ugh. You all know how much I’m looking forward to that. Should only be for a week though. Knock on wood.

Couple random things: started my clean eating again; doing yoga because anything more intense is too much; and sort of participated in the Lowcountry Heart Walk on Saturday for my niece, G (“sort of” meaning we went and then they canceled it for the weather).

Thanks for sticking with me this far! I know I’m not quite as entertaining as I once was, and I think that’s a good thing because it means my life is less drama-filled. I’ll chat again soon!
