Breast cancer awareness month

As a Breast cancer survivor of 9yrs, I find I have different reactions to Breast cancer awareness month even on a day to day basis. 

Sometimes I resent the reminder that 9yrs ago this month I was recovering from a mastectomy & fretting over starting chemotherapy. That our first wedding anniversary & my 40th birthday was over-shadowed by my recovery.

Other times I’m grateful & humble I’ve made it 9yrs past some of the worst days of my life. 

Mostly I wish for every awareness campaign there were equal amounts of energy put towards finding a cure.

13Nov20  So, my gym ‘advisor’ decided once I was finished rowing she’d check out what else what happening.  #catsofinstagram #homegymlife #muchlatergram #rowing #darkhorserowing  #keepmoving

13Oct20  Well the rainbow watch band arrived.  I’m still waiting (as of the 17th) for the watch, though.  I wasn’t about to spend nearly $1k on a watch with a Milanese loop when I can buy the bands elsewhere separately.  I’m frugal.  Mostly. #2020pad #watchband #milaneseloop #frugal
23Oct20  Noble still seems to be holding his leg in odd positions.  I made an appointment with our regular vet to check him out.  We’d have to wait a few days though.  #worriedkittymama #sadkitty #catsofinstagram #2020pad #muchlatergram
15Oct20  Having lunch with Anne who was helping me on a special day. It was the 20th wedding anniversary for me and Rod.  We made it to 18yrs.  This day was harder for me than Rod’s birthday, but having a good friend to be with helped immensely.  #lunch #lunchwithafriend #harddays #widowslife #20thanniversary #goodfriends
