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!

Sorrow beyond sorrow

Wild calendula
What a horrible week!  On Monday the students were killed in school.  Then the tornadoes.  And now Rush Limbaugh went lower than I knew that humankind could go on airwaves.  I didn't know that crude sort of speech was even legal.  I hope he is sued.  I hope he loses his program.  I hope other things that I dare not say.

The photos of people surveying the devastation of their homes - while rescuing or cuddling their pets - overwhelm me.  Where does one start to repair life when so much has been destroyed?

It was a dreadful week.
