A friend recently asked if I was super excited to get out of San Francisco….to be DONE with my breast cancer treatments. Actually, I must separate the two. I’m ready to be DONE with treatment; however, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with San Francisco (a BIG Silver Lining)!
My last Radiation treatment is a week from today. Wow. Absolutely remarkable that nearly 8 months have passed since my breast cancer diagnosis.
Everything related to FBC is far from over. However, every new day is another step in the right direction (Silver Lining)!
In the past nine months, thanks to breast cancer, I have had to look fear in the face and either go around it, through it or over it. Good thing that I’ve gotten pretty good at it (Silver Lining!).
One of the great joys of being in San Francisco, aside from my exceptional care, is the City Lights bookstore (Silver Lining).
I am a real sucker for independent bookstores. I pretty much melt in a puddle whenever I have the opportunity to go in one. Much less shop. It is a fantastic way to get my mind off of breast cancer!
As I continue on this breast cancer journey, for every downer, there are two Silver Linings. The nicest, most amazing things happen. When I need them the most. Every. Single. Day.
Today, I officially entered the breast cancer radiation road. Unfortunately, it is a heavily trafficked road. The Silver Lining news is that I am being cared for by an extraordinary team…including a bolus!
While in San Francisco (for a doctor’s appointment), the HOTY and I went to the de Young museum to see Balenciaga and Spain, an exhibition examining the impact of Spanish culture on the legendary designer. The exhibit is delicious eye and mind candy, which happens to be a great antidote for chemotherapy-induced nausea. Really.
Life is an Adventure. Take your Attitude!
