I have almost completed two months of taking Tamoxifen (again) and am still feeling very well. I cannot tell you what a blessing that is to say. Besides the occasional sweating and hot flashes I am tolerating the medicine much better this time around. My hope is to remain on Tamoxifen for the next five years to lower my risk of reaccurance from 25% to 15%. Thank you for praying and thinking of me. I am very grateful and while many have asked that I write more often I must say I am grateful I have little to share these days.
I have been busy living and reflecting on my cancer journey no longer holds the place that it did before.
My hope for you is that whatever circumstance you find yourself in today, may you one day be able to look back and smile knowing you made it through. Because I smile a lot more today than I did this time last year.
Today I am tired from staying up too late, eating lots of yummy food, sore from my Monday workout and have a slight headache from the headband I am wearing. Yep you read that right a headband. I have enough hair to pull it back. (perhaps if I tried maybe a small ponytail). All of these things were things I could have never celebrated last year.
Next Month, March 19, 2016 I will celebrate 1 year of being Cancer Free and my last day of chemo! I am very much looking forward to that.
And to now leave you with something funny, I realized that I never shared my wig pictures from the day my mom and I went shopping for one, and thought it might make you smile! Enjoy!
