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!

Oh, no!!!!!

It's 11:50 p.m. and we just got home from the emergency department (that's what they call the ER these days). What happened? I don't know. It was about 7:00.  I was standing in the hallway, chatting at the doorway of Youngest Daughter's room.

I remember my scream on the way down and it was all over - I was straight out flat on my belly. Next:  ambulance to Santa Rosa. x-rays. broken left humerus almost at the shoulder. a support sling. home just before midnight. another six weeks of anticipated pain and healing.  Nurse Steve will be with me 24/7 (he can have Starbucks breaks and run errands, but that's about it for him).

Will it ever end? A scary thought to add to all my other scary thoughts.....


  1. Oh my goodness, Barbara! Take care, and I'll be sending healing thoughts your way.

  2. What happened? That sounds scary...Hope your arm heals soon.
