Case in point: After enduring chemo and surgery, she learned a few weeks ago that she still has "a few rogue cells" and that she'll need to undergo radiation. Her response:
I've told my doctors I'll do whatever they want me to do to beat this thing (absent a set of life-threatening risks that outweigh the benefits). That said, I'm not looking forward to another form of treatment. At least I can ... move forward with my day-to-day life.Today, she posted a photo of the shoes:Touché, Nancy! Enjoy your ruby red radiation slippers. You've earned them (and then some) with your fortitude and your amazing attitude. I hope your surgery recovery continues to go smoothly. I'll see you in a few months for my own five-years-clean celebration.
On the upside, I've decided this is an excellent excuse to buy the most expensive pair of shoes I have ever tried on.
