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!

Hanging on to hope

It's not finished. But don't you remember the potholders you wove when you were about six years old? Now, over 60 years later, weaving with one broken humerus is much more difficult - and more painful. I can pull two loops through and then the pain is so high I have to stop for the day. It used to take me 20 minutes to complete the entire project, but this one is taking weeks.

I had a fever all day today - not high, but concerning given last week's sepsis.  Face it, I'm an invalid! I saw the oncologist this morning who let me proceed with chemotherapy (Halaven). I begged since the last response was so favorable and gave me real hope.
