I kept on trying to figure something out that was more exciting then Il Divo tickets and it hit me! If you have been reading my blog for awhile or know me in person you know I had a cancer scare back in 2009. I was told I needed chemo before I could have surgery to remove the tumor from my ovary. It was all very scary and upsetting. I luckily had an amazing specialist in Halifax who just didn't think it was cancer and she decided my best option was surgery and soon. No chemo just get in there and take out whatever was in there. Two weeks later I was having surgery to have this mass removed. I had never had surgery before and having surgery on your stomach makes you feel like you're 100 years old! You don't realize how much you use those muscles. It was a long 6 week recovery but I did it and I got a call from Dr. Rittenburg that it wasn't cancer she was right! It was actually my ovary who decided to just be a little crazy and didn't want to be a part of my body anymore. I have watched people deal with cancer, I have watched families of those dealing with cancer, I have been a part of those families and I cannot begin to tell you how lucky I am that I didn't have cancer. I'm here.
This reminded me of how lucky I am when it comes to my family. I honestly don't know how I would function without them. We have close family and I always feel bad for those who don't have same. When someone says they don't really get along with their siblings that basically boggles my mind because mine are my best friends. The older I have often the more I realize how awesome my parents have been. Yup, I really got the best when it comes to family and not just my immediate family my whole family/friends are all pretty awesome!
Final thought...There is going to be all kind of lucky stories today with the link up and I'm excited to read them but I want everyone to remember today how lucky we are to be alive and well. Yes, we all have our problems we are dealing with but just don't take things for granted because they can change in second.
