On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

The 15-minute gardener

One of my biggest problems is lack of energy or just low energy. So I cope by finding tasks that I can work on for 15 minutes and then stop and do something else sitting down. Today I planted six little marigolds in a large pot. There is nothing quite like summer on its way than marigolds, right?

The pansies I planted two weeks ago are coming along nicely.
