While I have a huge sense of relief to be finished with the major treatments, I have a little ways to go yet. I must allow myself some time to heal from the radiation and continue to allow my body to flush out the remaining chemicals from my system. I am gauging this by a few different things but one is by my finger nails. One of the many side effects of chemotherapy was my nails all turned white from the nail bed up and became extremely brittle. I was lucky they didn't fall off but it was still so weird and pretty ugly. They are almost all grown out now. I have maybe another month to go.
With the new year beginning so well, I promised myself I would not look too deep into the belly of 2010. However, while cleaning up my office desk yesterday, I came upon an envelope of photos that have been given to me over the year. They are actual prints and I do not have the original digital so I decided to scan some of them into my computer. Here is one that G and I both found pretty hard to look at. It brought up a lot of emotion both individually ( I'm sure his experience and memories of this is different than mine) and together. I almost can't look too closely at it but thought I would share it with all of you. Some of you were there that night. It was taken on May 25, 2010 - The night before my surgery.
|Heading home after an evening I will never forget.|
For now, I am trying to separate these two years but it is not as easy as just turning over the calender. Where does 2010 end and where does 2011 really begin? I will just have to let time work that out.
Happy New Year to all my friends and family who have supported me over the last year and to my random blog readers out there....Let this year bring us all many wonderful things!
