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!

So much better

Usually casted people wrap the affected limb(s) in large white garbage bags. But a couple of days ago I asked the CVS pharmacist if they have something more substantial - and they do! It is so snug at the elasticized top that I need help from Steve to pull it past my elbow, but once on, I can shower like forever!

Today is the third pain-free day so I've clearly turned a corner, finally.

Tomorrow I have two medical appointments plus some fun shopping to do.

Tuesday in May, remember that!

  1. Ah, the feel of being in control of yourself rather than the pain being in control!

    My son got a special thing for his foot (and up to knee) cast. Yes, they are much better than plastic bags!

    Good luck at your appointments and do have lots of fun. I get to meet my sister for lunch - we are both driving halfway (45minutes) and meeting at a mall for lunch so I am going to have fun today too!
