It's been 9 months since I first heard the words and 7 months since confirmation of the diagnosis.
I have found a strength inside of me that I didn't know I had. And it has brought me a great sense of peace.
I know what the ugly end stage of this disease looks like, but I will not entertain those thoughts until they get closer to my current reality.
Living in the present and enjoying it is how I am choosing to conduct my life.
It's not that I don't have sad moments, but they are acknowledged, accepted, and then they move on.
It's not going to get me until it gets me !
I started writing my "bucket list" in January and have now been able to cross two things off. The pictures here are from our recent fabulous trip to Haida Gwaii, the first item on my list.
