3 years ago today, I had my final surgery rendering myself cancer free!
I don't talk about it a lot. Not because of any special reason, but because it seems like a lifetime ago :)
I don't remember a lot of the details. I can't even remember what kind of cancer it was specifically, just that it was breast cancer. And it doesn't really matter in the end. I survived. And I've thrived.
I lived one day at a time for 10 months, through 6 chemo treatments, 6.5 weeks of radiation, numerous surgeries & tests... I was bald & boobless :) But I survived. And I continue to thrive.
My first trial after my first chemo treatment.
I remember pulling out chunks of my hair as we drove the 3 hours to Zanesville...
I wore that hat for over 10 months, it was my favorite one.
The following day I had my 2nd chemo treatment.
I continued to trial Porter throughout my treatment. It was fairly easy to schedule around chemo, I just had to plan in 3 week increments :)
We earned 15 titles during that time. We attended our very first herding trials. And we qualified for NADAC Championships.
But I couldn't have done any of it without Porter's support. Or John's. Or my family. Or my friends...
Thank you to everyone who helped me through that. Like I said, it seems like a lifetime ago. And I don't remember much. But I do remember the love & support that I felt!
Tomorrow we continue with the beach photos! :)
