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!

Move along little doggie, move along

This evening was the 4th in a row that I was able to walk with Steve and the dogs one-half mile. I used my 4-wheeled walker.  We window shopped all around the Plaza, sat down and nattered a bit, then drove back home. I understand that it's a paltry distance - especially since I had slept so much during the day - but it's a massive effort for me. It helps to take 2mL of morphine before we leave and the same  when we return to make it possible because I hurt everywhere.

What scares me most is getting an infection, falling again or not being able to continue working at Juvenile Hall.  Steve is going to work with me when we start up again, hopefully later in August. It's been quite a long leave of absence.
