A strange anniversary

It is 6 months today since I heard those words “highly suspicious of cancer”, and life changed.

In some ways it is hard to believe that 6 months have passed, as it has gone by in a blur.  However, it has been 6 months where almost all waking (and many sleeping) thoughts and actions have been taken over by the cancer diagnosis.  Planning is impossible and life is constrained in many ways.

However, 6 months have indeed passed.  Surgery ticked off, and 7 out of 8 chemo sessions also done.  So the heaviest and most difficult period is (hopefully) behind me.  One more chemo and then 5 – 6 weeks of radiation.  That is not long compared with 6 months.  And I am banking on feeling progressively better once the chemo after effects wear off a few weeks after chemo 8.

And to quote H on the 6 month milestone?

I don’t know if it seems longer or shorter than that, its half a year and that’s scary!”

Indeed!!
