I guess I have a lot to be thankful for this year. Even though I am still fighting my disease, I am hopefully on the last major part of my journey. Just 6 months ago I was told not only did I have cancer, but that I was inoperable. Deep down I always believed that I would have surgery, however I never imagined it would be 3 months later. Now with two surgeries under my belt, I feel like I am well on my way to becoming a some what normal person again.
I am also extremely thankful for all of the support I have received throughout my journey so far. I never would have guessed so many people in my life would step up and stand by my side while I fight for my life. As I have said before, it pays to put out good energy in the world.
Also, the nurses who were by my side in the hospital. All of them were great, but there were a select few who went beyond their job requirement. They held my hand while I was scared, and were there by my side comforting me while I cried. I will forever be thankful for their kindness.
As my fight continues I try not to just save my thanks for the one day a year when the calendar tells me so – I am thankful everyday.
