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!

Visiting nurse

Last week, when Demi and I attended training so we could become a Social/Therapy team, the trainer picked up on our interest in visiting the chemotherapy suite when I'm already there for treatments.  Here's one idea we learned:  Dress Demi in a nurse's cap and have her hold a stethoscope.  If she approached you, wouldn't you feel better? (Her tail is wagging eagerly, she's happy to see you.)


  1. What an adorable dog and great photo! I enjoyed looking through your blogs and have to say, you are one strong woman and lover of life.

    In response to your visit about my zentangles, you don't need to buy anything, just look at all the examples, grab a pen and zentangle away. That's what I did. They are so fun.

  2. How cute she is. Everyone will want to see and pet her. She'll ease a lot of anxiety.
