One Year Ago....

Today marks one year since I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I must say, even though it was a tough year, it went pretty fast.

I still have a few more months of herceptin infusions to go. It makes my joints and muscles ache and it makes me pretty tired. It is a different type of tired, super fatigue and inertia. I am having surgery again on October 4th. It will be more surgery to try to get symmetry of the breasts. They are a bit better since the last surgery but still pretty far away from normal.

Julianna and I are having a nice summer. It was great to see a lot of family up at the lake. Julianna swam, roasted marshmallows and picked blueberries. She loved seeing all her cousins and cried when everyone left. I loved seeing everyone but I wish I had more energy. I am going to ask the doctor when I go on Monday if there is any drug I can take to get a boost.

Thanks everyone for all the help and support during this very difficult year. I could never have gotten through it all with out all of you!
