Sometimes even I need a reminder ...
I'm lucky I was diagnosed with breast cancer. A cancer in which a lot is known and the doctors are well aware of how to treat it.
I'm lucky I have insurance. I can't imagine how we'd pay the bills otherwise. No. Actually I can imagine. We'd be paying them for the next many many years.
I'm lucky we had (albeit not large) savings. Because even with insurance, there are portions we have to pay. And they add up quickly.
I'm lucky because of all the help we've had. Since Mid-May we've been getting 3-4 meals a week. How blessed we are. It's been a huge help. And we're so appreciative of it.
I'm lucky because of all the support we've had. I'm pretty sure there are hundreds of people out there praying/sending good thoughts/thinking of me. Many of whom I've never met.
I'm lucky because I'm in the hands of some amazing doctors. I've heard from other medical profesionals how wonderful my doctors are. I'd like to say it's because I researched it and picked only the best, but the truth is it's only by chance I landed with the doctors I've landed with.
I'm lucky I have family and friends close close. Especially my mom. She has been an amazing god send to us during this time. She's here almost on a daily basis. Drives me to my appointments and helps with the kids without complaint. That's just one example. All of our family and friends have been amazing.
I'm lucky because of all the on-line support I've been given. many of you whom I've never met in real life, and yet, there you are thinking of me. Sending me well-wishes and supporting me. I'm blown away by it all.
I'm lucky because I have am amazing, supportive husband. I've heard some stories. And wow. Some men are absolute jerks. But my husband is not one of them. And I thank God for this man every day.
