When You Cannot Journal, Type S02 | E08

For the first time since receiving her initial cancer diagnosis, Katie Hubbard finally received good news: there was no evidence that her cancer had spread. Though she couldn’t write in her journal (because she had drainage tubes under her arm from the mastectomy), she did post a couple of updates on Caring Bridge about the relief that good new brought. Of course, learning that the worst hadn’t happened gave her the mental space to process the hard things that had happened. In her own words, she almost fainted twice in one day thinking about the surgeries she had been through. Even so, the kids were back at home with all the energy they brought, and Katie was resolved to find the good (and even humorous) things in life as we were living it.
