I always thought it was funny when people would say to me, "you look great, not what I expect a cancer patient to look like". I don't really know how to take those type of comments. Looking back at pictures there are definitely times I looked "sick" and times I just looked like I was choosing to be bald. Oh and when the hair started to come back it was really questionable to people. Sorry, I sort of got off on a tangent there. That is a post for another day.
I read through this post from my husband and it made me sad. His loving words expressing what it feels like when you find out the cancer is gone are so on point. It was like the weight of the world was lifted from our shoulders. Then I think about it, now that I am facing my third occurrence of cancer it is very much like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. Not knowing what the next step is in treatment is weighing heavy on my mind tonight. Tomorrow morning, while I am still asleep hopefully, the panel of doctors at the hospital will discuss my case at the cancer board. Tomorrow morning they will hopefully determine my treatment plan. There is a lot of hope in this house tonight.
We had a fabulous anniversary celebration today. Today we didn't think about cancer, we just enjoyed the day we had together as a family. We went pedal boating on the canal here in Indianapolis and went to SubZero for some ice cream as a family. It was an awesome way to celebrate our 1st anniversary!
