Today is friday and , as if that wasn’t cause enough for celebration, this weekend marks my 7th year of being cancer-free :)
Some days it feels like forever ago, while others feel like it was just yesterday. I was recounting my last day in the hospital with my dad the other day and we both described it as “a fun day.” That probably sounds a little strange to those who haven’t gone through (or been close to someone who has gone through) treatment for an illness like cancer, but honestly it was a great day. After 11 months of trekking back and forth to the hospital for tests, appointments and the overnight stays for treatment, the last day was a breath of much needed fresh air. Friends and family came to visit, the nursing staff said their goodbyes and we counted down the hours and eventually the minutes until I was finally a free woman.
When I think back to that time of my life, I like to remember that night more than anything — when it was clear how much love I had surrounding me. The night that we spent celebrating. And I really wouldn’t mind celebrating with that cake batter shake!
I hope you all are healthy and happy, especially today :) Happy Friday!
I’ve been brushing up on all of the Sex and the City seasons lately in my free time and I am obsessing all over again. Sarah Jessica Parker, though sometimes a little over the top, has more style in her pinky finger than I have in my whole body. I love her. And she only gets better with age.
