Now that chemotherapy has wound down, I’m entering unchartered territory again. I will be doing hormone therapy for my breast cancer and that’s about popping a daily pill which presents its own side effects. But, not to worry, because I’ve already put out into the Universe that once again I will not suffer any major side effects.
I am still somewhat tethered to my Oncologist since I will be checking in periodically for lab tests to make sure my body is adjusting and coming back from the cancer drugs. In the meantime it’s:
Yes, I’m currently planning a blowout Birthday/Chemo Over Party! It’ll be really great to see friends and family again since I haven’t during my cancer treatments. Having it in my hometown to catch up with friends (some of whom I haven’t seen since college) and family to really make this a joyous occasion!
I’ve also signed up for my first Survivor Dinner and Relay Race! I didn’t join any support groups after I was diagnosed because talking to you guys through this blog has been the best therapy and support I could ever have. I bonded with fellow patients during my chemo treatment so it’ll be nice to meet survivors at the dinner.
The Relay Race should also be fun. At first, I was skeptical because I haven’t run or done a relay for years. My Nurse “Angel” Navigator who has been with me since the beginning assured me that I don’t have to run, just take a survivor victory lap for cheers and support from friends and family. Okay, I said, if that’s the deal, I’m totally in!
So, a lot to look forward to on the horizon. And as I’ve been told – my future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades! 💖😎
