Three years ago today...

I was admitted to hospital for nutropenia after my first chemo session. I remember being so sick on that Boxing Day. I spent 7 days in isolation with terrible side effects. During chemo I ended up being admitted for nutropenia a total of four times and was so sick after my third chemo session I didn't think I would make it through treatment. Three years on, here I am cancer free. Except for a new disease, I would be on top of the world.

Today is also 26 days since I had major surgery to treat Achalasia (unrelated to BC). I have a new stomach and am re learning how to eat with my new plumbing. Still on mostly liquids and pureed foods, but I get to have lots of cream with everything to stop further weight loss so there's an upside to everything.

Three years, two major diseases and I am still here doing fine. I made it through. For all those who are struggling, I hope that your struggles will pass as mine did. 

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.
