It’s been 3 years since the day that I was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumour. March 18th holds a special place in my life, it’s a day that my life changed. It’s a day to celebrate life and be thankful for my circumstances. I woke up this morning feeling a little underwhelmed, I had planned nothing to celebrate.
I dragged myself to the gym and while I was running I started thinking about the 18th of March. What was I going to do to mark the day? And then I realized that I was doing it. I was running, something that I couldn’t do 3 years ago without debilitating pain in my head.
I was very lucky that I had a quick uneventful recovery after surgery with minimal side effects. That is what I celebrated today with a trip to the gym and a game of laser tag to celebrate my oldest son’s birthday.
My last scan was in December and it came back clean so I have a lot to celebrate! My next MRI is in December of 2018 until then I will LIVE. I encourage you to live too, don’t wait until tomorrow to start that new thing or go on that adventure. Sign up, show up and do it.
Thank you for your inspiring story.
Wishing you well.
Thank you Mona! All the best.
A very good way to celebrate! It has been 3 years! Wow! Time flies and you still got this! Big hug from Toronto. 🙂 And happy mom’s day today!
