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!

My latest good read

Elizabeth Berg has been one of my most favorite authors for decades. I always read or reread at least one of her novels each year. What I particularly like is the detail in her descriptions, little bits that are vividly alive.

This novel has several threads, each neatly woven into the others. There's a challenging mother-daughter relationship, the recovering of the main character after her husband's unexpected death, finding new purpose in her life and others that I don't want to mention for fear of giving too much away. Let's just say the main character has some major decisions to make and we vote and root for her all along the way, but the outcome is never easily guessed.
