I missed it!
I wanted to post something meaningful and moving on my one-year cancer-versary.*
If not a major post, then at least a THANK YOU to all my "coffee and chemo" dates!
But.... I forgot!
The day came and went!
Then it was time to get ready for school... then dealing with school... then preparing for the holidays...
Then, without meaning to, I sort of wrote about the cancer-versary as an aside.... (I was writing about Rosh HaShanah, and it just came up.... )
So, though it's a bit late, here is the flip side to my cancer-versary:
I want to thank all my friends who came to hang out with me at chemo this past year!
You guys took what could be a real drag and turned it into fun!
I really looked forward to my coffee-and-chemo-dates!
It was so great to spend time with each and every one of you!!
A few of you came on really crazy, stressful days. We barely had a chance to sit and talk. I truly apologize for that. (most days were not like that, really) Thanks so much for being understanding!!
Some days, I had so much fun, it was..., well..., it was rather strange.
I mean, how could I have such a good time at chemo?
But I had to be there for the chemo!
Why not make it fun?
So, thanks for the company! Thanks for the support! Thanks for the snacks/lunches! Thanks for playing games with me! Thanks for the amazing conversations!
Most of all, thanks for hanging out in the chemo ward, when you could have been anywhere else!
You made this year a good one!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
*cancer-versary -- great expression coined by Noa!
