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!
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. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
