cancerversaryToday is my “cancerversary” – I was diagnosed with breast cancer exactly a year ago today. Here’s my past year in numbers, in no particular order:

5 surgeries

1 Cellulitis infection

23 embryos frozen

8 lymph nodes removed

8 sessions of chemo

7 shots of Neulasta

5 months of NED (no evidence of disease)/remission

3 tissue expanders

Countless IV lines (and even more needle sticks)

1 chemo bell rung

Over $2000 raised for the National Cancer Survivors Day Walk

7 different cancer-related doctors seen

3 wigs bought (and rarely worn)

102 get-well cards received

4 months of Tamoxifen (only 4 years and 8 months to go!)

3 allergic reactions to chemo/antibiotics/antiseptic soap, etc.

Many meals, Edible Arrangements, flowers and so on received

2 rounds (and counting) of eyelashes falling out

Here’s to a better 2013!
