2 years - I've made it!

Two years ago today, just before Easter I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
It was a pretty hairy scary diagnosis too. My diagnosis was Grade 3, Stage 3 Her2+ breast cancer. If I got through the first two years without a reoccurence then I was beating some pretty high odds.

Well... I'm still here. 18 weeks of chemotherapy, 25 rounds radiation and 52 weeks of Herceptin and 7 months (so far) of Neratinib later I'm still here. And life is good!!

Two years!! This is massive for me. Its a real mental game sometimes. Next stop. 3 years, then 4, then 5 and the oncology people won't want to see me anymore!

Bring on the weekend. I think this time it calls for some bubbles!

1st chemo - looking perky cos I had no idea what was going to happen to me.

More recently...with some of my favourite girls.

And also just to say thank you to all our friend and family.
We as a family wouldn't be the same without love and support from so many people.
