Ass-kicking anniversary

5 years ago today mom was diagnosed with cancer.  It was stage 3C.  On March 7 she had surgery and shortly after that she began chemo AND radiation, which she did on her lunch hour.  She never stopped teaching through it all.  It was amazing.  No matter how hard some of us tried, we just couldn't keep her down to rest and relax like she deserved.  She had the cancer, the cancer didn't have her. 
William was born in September and I have pictures of her holding him in the hospital at just hours old and they have exactly the same 'do.  Those pictures speak volumes to me.  So thankful she was there to hold him. 

Happy 5 years to mom.  Supermom.  Superhero.

It is quite possible that coffee has helped to cure her.  If you knew the quantity and strength of the coffee she drank, you may start to believe it, too.
