Cancer is hard. It is harder than I ever expected. I am not comfortable with vulnerability. The cold, hard truth of cancer has exhausted me. I have experienced many medical events since the diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer in July 2019.
✔️ 62 chemo treatments
✔️ 4 gamma knife treatments for brain tumors
✔️ 5 radiation treatments for a tumor covering my right adrenal gland
✔️ 1 radiation treatment to a tumor in my shoulder bone
✔️ 2 thoracentesis procedures (draining fluid from my lung)
✔️ 1 breast MRI
✔️ 2 complete spine MRI
✔️ 8 heart MRI
✔️ 5 echocardiogram
✔️ 8 brain MRI
✔️ 9 bone scans
✔️ 14 chest/ab/pelvic CT scans
Fighting cancer is a full time job. This gal is tired and is going to learn to say “no” a lot more.
