Today is my first day of chemotherapy. I was diagnosed with breast cancer exactly 3 weeks ago. That is a story in itself, brief but important, and I promise to explain in my next post. I did not handle the news well (who does?) and I have just begun to wade out of my denial. Starting chemo is a huge milestone, in that it has made this diagnosis more real than ever to me. And with it this little, magical stream of optimism has started to flow within me. Hope.
