Hope is Always a Reason to Celebrate

Five Minute Friday!  This hasn't been the best week.  However, since the prompt for this five-minute free write is celebrate, I'm going to focus on our reasons to celebrate!


This week we have two reasons to celebrate.

First, I saw the breast surgeon and got a good report.  I don't need to see her again for a full year.  I'm about four years post-diagnosis, and every milestone is a reason to celebrate!

Second, I talked with another of my doctors this morning.  I have had pain in my jaw--all day, every day--for ... I don't know, but it's been more than five years.  Doctors have tried things, dentists have tried things, and the oral surgeon sees nothing wrong with the structure of my jaw.

Anyway, this doctor I talked with today has a new idea.  She recommended a doctor (who, of course, is not in-network with our insurance) who she thinks can help.  Just the possibility gives me hope, and hope is always a reason to celebrate!

Not even at the end of my five minutes, but anything else I would write would just be babbling.  So I'll

STOP here.

Five Minute Friday


  1. Congrats on this milestone! Have a great weekend.

  2. I'm your neighbor at FMF today, and I'm so excited for your milestone! And hope...yes, especially after a not-so-great week...hope is definitely worth celebrating. I hope your weekend is a wonderful break after your week. Blessings to you!

  3. Congrats on the great news. That, my friend , is a great reason to celebrate. Hope you get the jaw issue figured out next :)
