I know it has been a while since I’ve posted on here. The truth..well life basically has gotten in the way. We have had a lot going on in the Odlozil household and I haven’t quite been able to process my thoughts enough to get them out in the open. One of the biggest Milestones was that on February 18th I TURNED 24!!!! To many of you this may seem just like another Birthday . In cancer world this is a huge milestone. We were told that I wasn’t going to make it to my 24th Birthday! I wokeup that day happier than ever, that I was lying next to my husband in a bed that was my own instead of lying in a coffin. Yes, that sounds morbid as hell but the truth is that I honestly deep down didn’t think I would make it to my 24th Birthday! I awoke that morning grateful, terrified and sad…Sad that this was my first thoughts waking up that morning. Sad that I was so unbelievably grateful that my eyes opened that morning. I was also angry, angry that most people take these days for granted and that they have the ability and naiveness to be able to wakeup on a day like this and go about their life while mine was I’m shreds that I haver been so carefully trying to piece back together..However, I was ready to start a new year with nothing but positivity and faith in the Lord. He gave me a second chance at life and I didn’t intend on wasting it! People talk about big milestones in life….your 16th Birthday…your 21st Birthday are huge milestones in a persons life. For me, just being able to make it to my 24th was in itself, a MIRACLE. I am left wondering if ill be able to make it to my 30th..until then..I will continue to piece my life back together and get back to some ounce of normalcy.
