Today’s my 40th birthday. I must say, all the anxiety about turning such a big round number has pretty much disappeared. A cancer diagnosis is much more stressful than any birthday. Instead, I’m happy to have made it to another birthday, and a cancer-free one at that. StatsGuy lamented the fact that there were no “Congratulations! You made it to another birthday without dying of cancer” birthday cards, so he modified one to make a joke about having only real boob.
It’s amazing to think that it’s been less than a year since I was diagnosed. It’s been a whirlwind of doctor’s visits, tests, and treatments. I do plan on having many more birthdays, and all of them cancer-free, thank you very much.
