I understand that for sure, my last dx was during Christmas. I will forever look at family and friends, and life differently.
Thanks for being with us.
As I prepare to leave for a family gathering I am holding all you whatnexters close in my heart. Everything just looks and feels different - a feeling of appreciation that I am able to participate. I'm in a good place between treatments where these are my good days. I feel emotional and trust a lot of you understand.
I too understand and think that all of the peole here that have been through at least one Christmas with cancer understand. We give thanks for what we have in terms of support and life. We mourn what we can't do right now, but vow to get better and stronger so hopefully in the future we can again do those things. I try and remember the real meaining of the holidays and try and give back much more that I recieve as I have recieved so much in support and help in my journey. Merry christmas to you and thanks for holding us in your heart as we hold you in ours!
Yes.. I know just how you're feeling. I was told I had about six months to live in Feb. of 06.... My first thought.... well almost first... was... I've had my last Christmas.. I love Christmas. It took me a few years to get back to the full decorating monster that I am.... Kathy Enjoy your Christmas and look for things you can maybe copy next year when your decorating again. Have a Happy New Year also, and may your 2013 bring you health, happines and joy!
There is a certain sweetness today...this being my first Christmas (and NOT my last) with a cancer diagnosis and chemo coming soon. Even though we are following our tradition of being in pjs, relaxing and just enjoying the day I have felt the love...and am sending the love back to each of you.
My Christmas was a different experience.
I was hoping to have a GREAT one but did not. Last year I had surgery on 12/20 but was home
for Christmas. I enjoyed that holiday more. ??not sure why.
Perhaps my expectations of family and friends was too high. It turned out that most of them were
too busy with their own plans.
