Compassionate friends

In November I will have made it 2 yrs. since my cancer diagnosis.  I still remember those words, "I'm sorry. You have cancer."  Cancer is a lonely disease.  Your life flashes before you.  Your family, friends and animals flash before you.  It's a lot to take in.  Radiation and chemo are scary.  Every biopsy, you wish and pray for a little more time.  Every day you get up and celebrate.  I go 100 mph...my family and friends know that.  I am so afraid I might miss something.  I want to live life to the fullest. 
I am so fortunate that I work with the best co-workers around...critical care nurses.  Also, I have dear close friends that helped me put one foot in front of the other on days I didn't feel like I could do it again.  Being afraid to miss anything, I had IV chemo being continuously pumped into my veins while I was out working my dogs in the snow.  My husband likes to tell those stories.  I think it still sends shivers up his spine.
I'm taking the time once again to thank all of the above people for being in my life, giving me spiritual support when  I needed it the most.  You all mean the world to me.  Thank-you.  "The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears."
