Hi everyone -
It has been 1 year since I had my colonoscopy and dreadful rectal cancer diagnosis. It seems like just yesterday. A lot has changed in this past year - I was working full time, now I'm not - I looked at life a lot different - death was not on my mind at all, now I look at each day like it could be my last. I think I have gone to the bathroom more this past year than I have been my whole life combined, lol. My husband and I are closer than we have ever been. My sister and I have resolved our problems and she has been a huge help when I went through surgery. My anxiety has calmed but I still have fear that it will come back. Things that were a big deal - are just not that important anymore. I hope to see my twins graduate (they are in 10th grade), I hope to see grandchildren (my 29 year old daughter is trying to have a baby), I hope to see my son and his wife have a baby, I hope to have more great years with my husband, he has been my rock through all of this.
