i've appreciated your stopping by the blog, and keeping up as your time and interest has allowed.
now that treatment is behind me, and tamoxifen lies ahead, i've found myself in a space where i'd kind of like to put the whole cancer story in the rearview for a while.
i can't do that if i write about it everyday.
i've enjoyed the opportunity to frame the experience in the form of storytelling.
i can say it was helpful to be able to organize thoughts during the months of diagnostics, surgeries, recoveries and treatments.
fall, winter, spring.
summer though, is truly the season of the rookie.
i went for my first swim of the season yesterday.
and today i took my first outdoor shower of the season.
yesterday i put two early cherry tomatoes, growing in the backyard garden, into my cheese and pickle sandwich for lunch.
talk about a mouthful of summer.
fall, winter, spring were the months filled with cancer.
i'd like summer to be the months filled with light.
so with this is mind, i'd like to thank you again for being here.
if i keep writing here though, then breast cancer will always be riding shotgun, bc i'll have to think about it everyday.
and i might think about it everyday anyway.
for a while.
but i really want it to just be a chapter in whatever book this life is.
so with gratitude, i'm saying again, thank you.
you were here when i swung that first time, and made it to first base, which i consider to be diagnostics.
and second base, when i moved on to surgeries.
and third, which i see as treatment.
and now, wherever home is, i'd like to believe i'm there.
