(get) Busy Living
Posted by wendy on 2013/08/02
There is dust everywhere around here, isn’t there? That’s actually okay by me. I’m content to let the dust settle around cancer for a while before I have to wade back in and kick it all up again. (see how I used a water AND a dirt metaphor there? MUD PIES FOR EVERYONE!!) Actually, I hope I NEVER blog here again. I hope this part of my life is over, but I’m realistic enough to know that it may not be. There is no cure for cancer. Sometimes, it comes back.
BUT. Right now, this moment…today…
I’m doing really well. NED left and right. I live in England now with my fabulous husband and my adorable dog and I miss my son like AIR, but I also get to see him nearly every night on skype AND I get to give him a big squeeze in a few weeks, so that’s a good thing. Everyone likes to remark how happy I look–and they would be right. I am incredibly happy and satisfied with my life. It is everything I could have possibly wanted it to be. I do not take this for granted. I am grateful every single day for this incredible gift.
Sometimes, I feel like this is all borrowed time–I’ll wake up and that ache in my hip or the weird mole just above my scars (why didn’t they just cut that sucker off when they were CUTTING OFF EVERYTHING ELSE???) will turn out to be Cancer Again and then I guess I’ll be back here documenting the hell out of everything that happens to me–but, until that time I am living my life. Cancer can suck it. I have adventures ahead of me and I am going to keep track of all of them here.
