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!

I need a cup of coffee, desperately

I'm supposed to be completing one journal page a day for my mixed media class and I'm woefully behind. But last night I got this one done that I'd been working on all week. I'd do it differently if I were to start all over -- and maybe I will -- but here it is as it stands right now.

Demi celebrated her 4th birthday this week. She's our great little doggy living with chronic kidney failure and I worry about her every time she laps up a sip of water. But so far, she isn't symptomatic and I'm hoping her blood tests at the end of the month will support my observations.

Now, back to work!


  1. I like your primary color scheme and the cups of coffee are lots of fun! please keep sharing. :)

  2. Thank you, Stephanie. It was fun to do!

  3. Wouldn't it be nice if she is either in a remission or it just doesn't show up positive? We can always hope!

    Love your coffee mugs!

  4. Love this page! It would make a great poster!
