I’ve been reminded of a few milestones in the past month or so, but because of work and school and my consulting job and weddings and getting a dog and….you get it…I haven’t really had time to reflect.
Last week was a year to the day that I found out I needed to have surgery. A few weeks before that was a year since I had my biopsy.
I had an appointment with my endocrinologist last week. It’s been 3 months since my last appointment (which is the longest in between appointments I’ve gone this year!), and he wanted to make sure my blood work and levels were holding steady.
I’m happy to report they are. I felt a wave of relief as he told me I wouldn’t have to have another scan until February. After a year of adjusting and readjusting and lowering and increasing my dosage, it’s comforting to know that something is working.
I wasn’t blogging when I had the biopsy or the appointments or the surgery – I came back to blogging a month after surgery because I felt like I needed a place to talk about what was happening. With almost a year under my belt in this crazy experience, I feel like I can look back at things a little bit more objectively. I’ll be posting a few “guides” if you will, or information about my experience in the hopes that they’ll help someone else out there.
I’m also putting up my Feats tab. I decided the New Years is much too far away to recommit to my goals. My Cancer-versary seems like a much more appropriate time to take stock of my life and reflect on where I want to go and who I want to be.
