Well, I’m doing much better today, gearing up for my next Herceptin appointment tomorrow, then I’m off to Vegas for Nina’s bachelorette party weekend! I am so excited to finally have a VACATION!! I could use a longer one but a long weekend will do for now and I can’t wait! I don’t have many updates today except that I’m still tired but that should be gone by tomorrow, and my mouth is still dry and blah, and I’m really getting sick of wearing my wiggies and hats. Hopefully my hair will grow fast when it starts to grow back. I was in kind of a bad mood earlier this week but my loving, wonderful dad cheered me up with his thoughtful encouraging words last night and I’m better now. Thanks Dad, I love you!
Well, instead of babbling on and on about nothing, I thought I’d share some more random thoughts. I apologize in advance if this is mushy, which isn’t typically me but oh well. As we all know, but sometimes forget, life is short and no one lives forever. Many people leave this world too soon, before they have the opportunity of realizing the true greatness that comes with living. I have come to appreciate the fact that I’ve been blessed with a wake up call, something not everyone gets or appreciates. I’m not going to waste any more time worrying about what could have been, or what should have been. I will instead be grateful for what I have, enjoy my life as it is and live in the moment. Fertility concerns over the past few years had me thinking something was missing in my life; that I wasn’t completely fulfilled. But now see. While I may not have a baby, I am fulfilled and I have everything else I want. The best family in the world, a wonderful husband who is my dream come true, fabulous friends and co-workers, four (yes four) wonderful, loving little pets, a dream house, my dream car, a dream job and a wonderful life network (those people you run into regularly at the store, my nail technicians, etc.). I would never trade my life, my wonderful life, for ANYTHING, even a life twice as long, however long that may be.
