Sweet Baby, Sour Cancer

My journey through cancer and pregnancy, twice.

One would think this would be one of my easiest post to write. I don’t even know where to begin. They don’t use the term “cancer free” anymore since there is no guarantee, but what I was told, I will take it. Immediately afterwards I took my mother in law and my parents straight to my favorite local watering hole, South Side Tavern! I needed a drink to celebrate and calm the emotional up-rising inside of me.

I was told today that I am FREE AND CLEAR from ALL DISEASE. I sit here tears streaming and reflect back on the last year.  I cant even believe what has happened. I miraculously had a baby, went through 4 months of chemo while pregnant, 6 surgeries, lost a boob (well worth it) and probably some things that my brain has chosen to forget about. Everything, Everything I have done has lead up to this moment,  this paramount moment. It was almost feeling like this was impossible to achieve… which is probably why I am feeling like such an emotional mess right now. My emotions are all over the board making it really hard to put them into words on paper (or computer screen). Once I can gather all my thoughts up, organize them, I will write more. For now lets just bask in the words of FREE AND CLEAR OF ALL DISEASE!
