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!

Reading around the block

It really is raining this evening, the real stuff with lots more anticipated tomorrow, Easter Day.  Steve (the photographer here) was busy with outdoor chores before it all hit - a friend helped him chop down a dying tree - for one.  The chickens burbled and huddled, that's all I can say for them.

It was another sleepy day for me.  Steve walks the dogs two or three times a day so they are happy fellows, but it's all I can do to walk the length of the house.  I've decided that I really do want one of those fancier walkers, the type that turns into a seat if you've run out of energy.  That's my problem, I get wobbly from meds and my legs are weak from lack of walking.  So, the obvious is to walk and build up energy, right?  Not I, I'd rather push the walker and stay upright that way. The idea is that I would be stable enough to make it around the block.  I could also carry my inconsequentials in all the bags provided and not feel burdened.  I always walk with a book, for example, although these days it's more likely a Kindle holding a couple hundred books.  No chance of ever being bored!
