Bells of Mourning
What a sobering sound this evening. We heard these bells ringing live, on TV.
I love the sound of church bells, but these were so sad. Each ring represented the loss of 1,000 people who have died from covid in the US.
A Sad Milestone
Yesterday, we passed the 300,000 mark.
So much happened yesterday in the news. It was easy to miss this sobering milestone.
But today is actually a happy milestone for me. Four years ago today, I rang a bell to celebrate the end of my cancer treatment.
This photo was taken at my radiation clinic. I posed with the staff that greeted me each day with smiles and support for 6 weeks.
Then I posed with this wonderful guy, who had accompanied me many months earlier to my surgery. He joined me at chemo treatments and shaved my head, when the time came. This was a big day 4 years ago, and how grateful I am that Don was able to go along with me and meet doctors and nurses and laugh with me... and we didn't have to wear masks!
I'm so glad my cancer was in 2016 and not 2020!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
