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!

A long day

Demi and I were on the go from 6:30 this morning until 9:00 tonight. That doggie works! We were in Juvenile Hall all morning, class all afternoon and attended an evening meeting. She's tired, I'm tired, but the day was good.

This little sketch is almost too light to scan. I don't usually draw in pencil alone, but today I did. Demi, as always, was sitting next to me. Like my hand, she is always available to draw.
