Today is a big day.
As I type these words, my wife is in surgery for her final breast reconstruction surgery.
It’s been a long road to get to this point. From a mammogram and chance early detection of a tumor in October, 2018 through almost six months of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and a total hysterectomy — not to mention lots of tears, worry, and an emotional roller coaster unlike anything I’ve ever been on, we’re finally here.
And while it may never truly be over — cancer has a way of always lingering in the back of my mind now — this is a major milestone.
So today, we celebrate getting to this point, hope for a quick, easy recovery, and look forward to everything that lies ahead.
Including a trip to Hawaii in the near future to celebrate.
