Two years ago today I spent the entire day at Mary Washington Hospital in the ER. I didn't know it at the time, but the abdominal pains that sent me there would turn out to be ovarian cancer. It was a year of hell, a total hysterectomy and six rounds of chemotherapy. And it continued into 2019 with hysterectomy-related hernias that required two surgeries (in the same week!). As of this month, I'm still in remission and hopefully will stay that way!
