It didn’t take me long to put together this A to Z of the past seven months. It’s just a random snapshot. I didn’t think about it too much. If I’d done it an hour earlier, it would have been different. An hour later, it would be different again.
A: anxiety, appointments, antibiotics, appreciation, awe, Andy
B: bald, blanket, bike, blogging*, Breast Cancer Care
C: consultants, chemotherapy, cellulitis, compassion, confusion, children, Christmas
D: drugs, dying, decisions, dad
E: exercises, emotions
F: flowers, fear, fate, family, friendship, fellow travellers
G: Glasgow, Google, grateful
H: hospital, hope, humour
I: inadequacy, ignorance, injections
L: letrozole, lymph nodes, life, laughter, love, luck, laptop
M: mastectomy, MRIs
N: needles, numbness
P: Paris, panic, physiotherapy
R: radiotherapy, results, recurrence (worrying about), resilience, relief, rest, recovery, reconstruction, Ruth
S: surgeons, surgery, scars, scans, shock, sadness, smiles, Scrabble, Sugar Loaf
T: tiredness, tears, tennis
U: ultrasound, underwear
V: veins, visitors, victory
W: worry, wigs, writing, walks, wishes, Wimbledon
Y: yesterday, yearning
Z: zoledronic acid.
That’s a bit of a weak finish but everyone always struggles with Z.
