We Can Rebuild Her
Better than she was before… Better, Stronger, Happier. A Breast Cancer Journal

Happiness Is…

Good Health.

One year ago today, was my first cancer surgery.

Today, that’s all a distant blur.

I’m strong. I’m healthy. I’m happy.

And I plan to stay that way for a good long time.

Lucky, lucky me.

More Happiness here.

    Do I say happy anniversary? I remember my first year, and every year there after, it does become a blur, a slight haziness to the memory. The strong feelings I had then have definitely disappeared. It’s been over five years since the surgery. And each year I wonder the same thing, do I say happy anniversary? I’m no closer to an answer then before. But I’m happier than I was before it all began!nnI’m happy for you that you are strong and healthy and happy! You have all my best wishes, Andrea.n:)

    Surprisingly (or perhaps not necessarily so) the dy of your first surgery is an extremely vivid memory for me. I can almost smell the air in my mind. I remember my nerves, beingnwith you until you were wheeled away. Then, the waiting. The delays. The relief. The careful drive home. Being home together, recounting the day.nnI love you!

    I am so happy for you! Funny that while you were celebrating your health, I was having my 1st mammogram. Thanks to you, I will not put off things that need to be done no matter how fearful I feel.

    Thank you, Andree.nI’m glad my experience is nudging you to take good care of you.nMy 2cm lump didn’t show up on my mammogram. Even though I’d found it myself before the mammogram. So don’t rely on mammogram alone.nnLet’s meet for a walk sometime very soon.n
