Today I’m waiting for results. Results of my quarterly CT scan, which will show if the cancer is back or not. (We’re praying for not.) Waiting to see what the future holds, at least the near future.
Have you done your self-exam yet? Everyone’s doing it, and our friend Ree, The Hotfessional, is running a special “Save the Boobies” event over on her blog. Please check yourself today, and call a friend and remind her too. Because the difference between having cancer and not having cancer is … well, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Last year, just about the only time I left the house in October was for a fun costume party playdate with my moms group. WhyDaddy drove me to the party, took me to the door, and picked us up. Little Bear and I sat and watched most of the party, although he did work on taking his first steps!
This year, we’ve been adventuring downtown, in the burbs, to the outlets, to the beach, and far away (more on that later!). We even went to a conference together — here we are sitting attentively in a workshop!
I’ve done both, and, let me tell you, you have a lot more options without cancer.
So check yourself and call a friend. I’ll be here when you get back.
