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!

Planning ahead

After a series of tearful meltdowns last night I was delighted to realize I had absolutely nothing scheduled for today.  I woke up at about 11:00 this morning, played a game of Solitaire on my cell phone and went back to sleep.  The entire day has been like that and I'm not complaining.  I keep thinking about summer, how I'm going to devote the entire summer to getting strong and healthy again....


  1. It sounds like you are being kind to yourself and that is good. I often play solitaire on my phone, its very addictive. We have snow here in Britian today after scorching temperatures last week, I also am looking forward to the summer, Take care

  2. Addictive is right! I miss snow so much, I grew up in Illinois (central US) and snow was an annual given.
