bring on the Summer!

done done done! all treatment is behind me!!! well except for the meds i need to take for the next 5 years put that is just a pill a day, that doesn't bother me.

I'm glad i got through, maybe not undamaged but i got through non the less; It's been a long six months and i couldn't have done it without the support of my family and friends and many people worldwide checking in to see how is was doing.
I am extremely grateful for all the mails, messages, cards, presents, phonecalls,.... it kept me going, it reminded me that i am loved and liked and that there are millions of reasons to hang around as long as possible.

well, this is my Summer, i plan to enjoy, relax, gain strength, let my hair grow, hopefully get my eyebrows and eyelashes back cause that is what i miss the most! i look so different without them!!

once i feel better i'll have to start planning my reconstruction cause one thing is for sure, i'm not going to stay like this! i can and will not get used to missing a boob! nope! well, that is for long after the Summer anyhow maybe even for next summer depending on what the doc says.

I'm going to Spain for a much needed time off and catch up with my friend Sue and her husband Colin, it'll do me the world of good to get away and soak up some sun and fun.

I still haven't finished the painting i started, i'm just not in the mood and i'm not going to force it but i promise to post as soon as it's done.

right off again, my physical therapist will be here any minute!!

love & peace

  1. Hi Tanya, Big congrats to you for getting through all your horrible treatment. Im so pleased for you that you have come through the last 6 months. Enjoy your summer and have a fab time in Spain with Sue - I'm sure you will! x

  2. Just one more week and then you can do as much of anything or nothing as you want. So looking forward to seeing you with or without eyebrows, hair or whatever - you'll still be the lovely friend I know and love. Till next Friday then xxxxxx

  3. Hi Tanya, congratulations!!!! I'm so happy for you that it's done! Hope the recovery will go smooth... i still don't find it easy at times, but hey, it's often a blessing to realize that i'm still here!
    Have a wonderful time in Spain!

  4. HALLELUJAH!!!! I am so happy for you!! Thrilled that you are going to Spain for sun and fun. Soak it all in, you were brave, and strong and now you will build up your strength and be back to feeling your artsy self in no time. May each day bring you a special joy.

  5. Ik hoop dat je een heerlijke zomer hebt gehad!! Spanje had in ieder geval mooi weer de afgelopen maand. Verder is het in Europa maar grijs en grauw. Ik hoop in ieder geval dat je je nu zelf ook wat zonniger voelt! Dat is wel nodig na al die maanden afzien! We zien reikhalzend uit naar je eerste kunstwerken, dat moet toch wel een teken zijn dat je begint te helen.

    Hartelijke groet, Anette

  6. Tanya, fijn dat alles nu zo goed gaat!
