It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve sat down to write anything for the blog, but in reality it has been around 4 months. So much has gone on in that seemingly endless stretch of time that it is hard to put it into words, I’m just thankful to still be here.
At this point, half the battle is over…and I am happy to say that I am winning the war. While the treatments have been extremely difficult, they have paid off in a big way. My cancer has been practically annihilated after 7 rounds of assorted chemotherapy and this Tuesday I am finally going in for surgery, a “Radical Resection of the Right Tibia”, to be exact.
This year has been the longest and hardest of my life thus far but in a way, this illness was one of the best things to ever happen to me. I have learned a lot from this experience and I anticipate I will learn even more before I reach the end of it. Somehow this tiny malignant mass has managed to alter my perceptions in ways I could never begin to fathom. I feel a sense of clarity unlike any I’ve ever had before. I am starting to really understand just how fragile life is and what is truly important within it. I am so grateful to the powers that be for giving me a second chance and I will not squander a moment of it.
I want to thank everyone for the well-wishes and prayers. They are and were much appreciated. Looking forward to making a full and complete recovery 🙂
