As for my health! I had a CT scan 2 weeks ago and we will get the results on Tuesday! My TSH (thyroid hormone) is finally in the normal range!! so excited to be moving forward!
Next weekend i will be off to school and it is such an unbelievable feeling. to think at this time last year i was watching all of my friends go off to university while I was preparing for radiation. I am in a much better place now and i am so thankful for everything that has happened to me and my family. At this time last year the finish line seemed so far away, yet now i’m looking back on it feeling proud that I got through it and am starting a new life. For the longest time i wished for things to go back to normal but i came to realize that nothing will ever be the same and “normal” was was something i could no longer comprehend. Just like when i was going through the transition from being a grade 12 student to going to chemo, I am looking for a “new” normal. Im sure it will take me some time to find it, but i know i’ll have a great time looking for it.
I will keep everyone updates with the results of the scan! Lots of love to you all!
