A Pink Year-End Update

Posted on December 27, 2008

Well it has been quite a year for anyone who has been following this blog and my cancer journey this year. I figured I’d do a year-end update just to close out the year. First and far most, I am doing well. My recent scans show nothing of concern and I’m feeling pretty good. While my hair is very very short, it has grown back and I can go without the hats and scarves now. I survived surgery in April, chemo this summer, and radiation this fall. I have cut, poisoned, fried, and burned this cancer. Hopefully, God willing, I have permanently kicked it out the door and out of my body. I never want it to return and I pray daily that this can be the end of breast cancer or any cancer in my life.

In closing, I want to say thank you to everyone who has emailed, commented, prayed, written, called, or otherwise supported me through this pink journey. It hasn’t been easy. Cancer never is. But there is always hope and things can get better. I am proof positive of this.

So thanks again all my friends and family, I love you all. Enjoy life to its fullest and have a very happy New Year!

    I like the idea of a year end update. That will give me something to think about for the next couple of days. I’m glad you are feeling so well and I’m sorry that I didn’t follow your journey from the beginning. Have a wonderful and healthy New Year!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. By posting it you pointed me to your blog which I am adding to my reader list.

    I wanted to comment on this entry, but I did scan your other recent posts, and I am so impressed with all your lovely craft work! With the year you had, I’m not sure how you had energy to create anything, but your work is beautiful and I just love the idea of recycling in crochet. I’m going to be trying some of your patterns and ideas!
