PROJECT: 05-DJC:174.9

This is Deirdre's Breast Cancer Diary. I try to update this blog at least every evening. This is an easy way for me to keep a journal of the experience, and at the same time, I can keep my friends and family up-to-date on what is going on. I find it is not so bad to have cancer, but it is awfully depressing to talk about it. I hope you laugh as you read along. You can find the beginning in February ...in the archives. Thanks again for reading :o)

I went to work today. WHAT A GREAT DAY! It was so nice to see everyone again. I didn't realize how much I had missed everyone. This morning I was a little afraid about coming in ...I thought "They are going to make me thing about cancer!" and I figured that would make me sad and I would probably start to cry. Well, I did think about cancer, and I did cry...all before I got into the parking lot at work. See how emotional I am? Just thinking about how I might cry makes me cry. One of the best things about today was all of the super people I work with. I can tell you I have never ever felt so loved in my life. I can feel God's love and see God's love in all of the faces. I am blessed. This is truly priceless gift. I will never forget this.
The third best thing: Feeling like a viable member of society again. Heck! I was up and showered and make-ed-up-ed and even dressed before noon today! That is an accomplishment. Oh yeah...and I was catching up on work stuff, too. It was great to have a team meeting and contribute (ok, they were a few jokes...they are always jokes...but I contributed in my normal way!)
The fourth best thing about today was watching The Incredibles movie.
But I have to say that riding to work with my carpool partner was the best thing that happened today.

    Thanks, Angela! I miss you, too. I hope you can come back out from Colorado some time soon. There are lots of jobs out here, too!
