One Year…

Well, today marks the one year anniversary of my diagnosis of stage IV colon cancer.  What a year it has been.  About 20 chemo treatments, two surgeries, countless blood draws, numerous doctor appointments, too many CT scans (I am surprised that I am not glowing). 

Not sure how you mark an occassion like this.  A good friend of mine told me that it is another day.  It will have 24 hours in it and it will pass into the next day.  He is right, it is just another day.  However, it is a significant day in my life as well.  I don’t want to celebrate the fact that I have cancer, but it is something that I do have and it, unfortunately, is part of my life at this time.

It has been a journey for sure.  I have had opportunities that would not have otherwise be afforded to me because of this disease.  The support that we have been surrounded with is unbelievable.  I have really been taken back at some of the things people have done for us, we feel so undeserving, and all we can say is thank you.

So, off we go, heading into year two.  Our prayer continues to be complete healing.  Maybe this will be our year!!
