As another year comes to a close, I find myself thinking about how blessed I have been . Things were pretty scary at the beginning of 2010. My future was so uncertain.
I now have 1 year as a cansir warrior under my belt. A lot of people use the word survivor, but I am still fighting so I think warrior is a better word. I have had the honor of meeting many more people just like me. They all have their own story to tell , some are very young and some are very old. Some of them talk to me, some won't, some think I am crazy. LOL!!! However, no matter what their circumstance I have learned so much from these brave people. I met a sweet lady during my radiation treatments who herself was diagnosed with breast cansir 3 years ago, the same year , her daughter was diagnosed with breast cansir and now her sweet husband is battling kidney cansir. I am lucky, she has been to hell and back. I have learned so much about myself this year. I have also learned that I have so many people that really love me. I am looking forward to 2011 with an anxious anticipation. I am so excited about the future . I am living my life 1 day at a time and hope to be the best person I can be for each one of them. So have the Happiest New Year that you can. I am going to.  Sending Love & Light your way.. xoxoxo..

Merry Christmas

I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. It has been 1 year since my dx. It has not been an easy one, but I must say, it has not been as as bad as you would imagine. I am still here and able to work and take care of my family. Which is more than I can say about some of my friends with this disease. One of the women that I have had chemo with since the beginning died a couple of weeks ago.  She had the same kind of cancer as me. You know the statistics say that 1 out of 5 people with stage IV breast cansir will not make the 5 year mark. Wow!!!! 5 years does not seem long enough.( I know cansir is spelled wrong , but I read that spelling it wrong takes away some of it's power.) I am determined to be here at least 20 years from now. New treatments are being developed every day and I pray that in my lifetime there will be a cure. As of right now, I am still in remission, YAY!!!! I had a great report from my oncologist on Fri. We will know more about the brain mets in Feb, when I have a new scan. I hope those suckers are gone! That was the weirdest thing I have ever experienced. I felt like I was walking around on Mars. If any of you had a crazy conversation with me, I apologize. My head is feeling much better now.
