Yay. I've finished chemo.......and I celebrated with champagne. A big glass of Veuve Cliquot champagne.....my favourite non vintage champagne.
I shared it with Bryan and some friends, George and Bobby, visiting from New Zealand. It was all the more special because Bobby kicked cancer in the butt 10 years ago. Bobby was one of the first people I rang when I was diagnosed 5 years ago. I needed to talk with someone who understood and who had a positive outlook.... thank you Bobby for being there for Bryan and I these past 5 years.
It was also nice to share my celebration with some blogging friends who joined me virtually by celebrating in there own special way. Jen at Use Real Butter, who has her own cancer story, wrote a beautiful post and invited others to join me in my celebration. Thank you Jen and thank you to everyone who joined the celebrations. I've said it before and I'll say it again.....food bloggers are the nicest people in the world. I appareciate the support you have given me these past 5 years.
I don't usally discuss my cancer treatment but I will share with you that my oncologist is extremely pleased with the results of my CT Scan taken this week. As hard as the chemo was results like that make it worth it.
My tastebuds haven't quite returned to normal yet but hopefully they soon will. I'm so looking forward to cooking and blogging again. I've missed you all.
