Sabattical



Okay kids, here we go. I'm going to be taking a temporary break from the blog to deal with my health. On July 14th I found out that I'm no longer in remission. I immediately convinced my doctor to postpone surgery until after my brother's wedding because missing that would kill me way before cancer could.

And now here we are. I've just rolled off one of the best months of my life. In just four weeks I saw both my college roommates, my college friends, my high school friends, and my extended family. At the wedding, I got the opportunity to toast (more roast really) my brother and sister-in-law on their union. 

All that to say, the timing for this is good. I'm so happy. I'm so grateful. I'm so blessed. In the article I recently wrote for Conquest Magazine, I wrote that cancer has been the best thing to ever happen to me. I still mean that - its not just a convenient thing to say when its all in the rear-view mirror. I welcome this opportunity and am eager to see what positive happenstances will come from it. (For example, there's talk of my college friends sending me a gigantic cardboard penis!!! AMAZING!)

I'm going to float into the OR today, rekindle my romance with opiates, and everything is going to be okay. Promise.
 
Love,
Megan

  13. Oh Megan. I'm so sorry to hear this, but only you could write a post with this news that still made me smile. You will be in our thoughts and I know that your courage, wit and charm will outmatch cancer yet again. Let me know if we can bring you meals/watch the baby/anything that would be helpful after your surgery.

  32. I think my comment got lost in the internet somewhere. Anyway... dang. I'm sorry. But I know that cancer is going to get its butt kicked by you and that this is somehow going to provide fodder for a sequel AND cinch your movie deal.

    I'm praying for you daily, buddy. If there's anything else I can do, even from ATL, let me know.
