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!

A slow move forward

I wish there were more quiet days like today. The only calendared time was the twice-a-month meeting of the cancer support group. There were 14 of us, including a guest speaker on pain control and relaxation techniques.

Tomorrow I begin the radiation to my broken humerus, a ten-minute procedure that will help control pain. After five days I hope to feel better and have less tumor activity to the site. I think the cast will be removed in two weeks, something to look forward to.

  1. Wow, that's fast isn't it? I think my son had his foot cast on for at least 2 months. Maybe I have it mixed up but it was a long time! Yes, unregulated days are great. Hope the radiation helps.
