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!

It's come to this

I woke up this morning feeling great and ready to work through a list of errands.  By the time I got to Errand #2 in a local pharmacy, I was so wobbly that I was looking for a place to sit and recoup.

Errand #3 was in a supermarket.  When I saw the motorized cart by the door the light bulbs started flashing.  I was already wondering how I could make it from the door to the grocery aisles and had sat down on a bench for a minute between the parking lot and the store.

Lemme tell you!  I had more fun shopping today than I've had in the past hundred years!  I went up and down the aisles at least three times each, bought far more than my list required and relished every moment of it.  I wish I had considered this option a few months ago when I first started complaining about the near fainting thing I do (and obviously hasn't been resolved).  I won't need this kind of service in a couple months, but I was certainly grateful for it today.


  1. Now that's what they are there for. Now if your husband decides to drive one when he is shopping with you, will you please drive single file? I have been stuck behind couples who think they can drive side by side on these things! I hope you find empty handicapped parking spaces close to the door too.

  2. Fantastic that the motorized cart was there when you needed it & that you allowed yourself to have fun with it!

  3. I thought the motorized carts were for the old and infirm! (!!!!)

  4. I have to admit that I've looked longingly at those carts! They look like so much fun!
