Cancer Day 34: Happy Thanksgiving

thankfulYesterday morning started out terribly. I read too much online and got sad and angry all at the same time. Luckily Karolin and little Emily had already planned on coming over and then I was soon very easily distracted.
I haven’t been feeling very well. Like a cold is coming on…achy, throat hurts etc. It scares me that when I’m on chemo and I get a cold, will it push me down lower? I really don’t want to deal with that…
So I took a super hot bath last night to soothe my aches. My bruising from around my surgery is almost gone, and I think the surgeon did me a favour because it’s like I had a breast lift on the left side! It looks so good! The right side not so much, but he’s done tremendous work. Once all the bruising is gone you’d never know I had surgery.
As I came out of the bathroom Elliott had put out my little Thankful card from a couple years ago. Every year at Thanksgiving I have people write what they are thankful for on a card and we all take it in turns to read them aloud. It’s one of my most favourite times each year. A simple holiday with so much meaning behind it. So much has happened in the last couple of years and it’s only brought all of us closer together. That makes me very happy and very thankful. 

Feeling: Thankful
