A few hours later my friends started getting text messages that read as follows:
I went to the hospital today having
been referred by my GP for an
ultrasound scan. My left nipple was
going in a bit. I had an ultrasound,
mammogram, and 4 biopsies. I won't
be told this definitely til I meet the
surgeon oncologist next Thursday but
it seems I have breast cancer which
has spread to my lymph nodes.
They're 99% sure they just need the
pathology report for confirmation. I
don't know what to say really I just
wanted to tell people myself.
This doesn't feel like a year ago. It feels like a lifetime ago.
There's actually only two things I really want to say.
1. I'm alive. Phew.
2. Thank you to everyone who has been in my life this past year. It was you that got me through it. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. XO
