Someone asked me how I was feeling and I realized I haven’t posted since December. ..Well, I feel better than I have in a couple of years. I have come a long way in the last year. Last January I had pneumonia along with cancer treatment and felt really ill. This year I have my usual 10:30 nausea – almost like morning sickness- but feel really well a lot of the time. I still don’t have quite the stamina I had before but I’ve been able to stay up later to watch television programs I want to see and still get up early. Shopping is much easier – can pop in and out of several stores – and I feel like my “step” has picked up once again. I am really enjoying cooking again. It’s all good. Saw the oncologist yesterday and he’s asked me to hold off the Pet scan for a month – giving the surgery another month of healing so that doesn’t show up on the scan. I had a little concern because the funding had to be renewed for the targeted chemo and I am always fearful that somehow something will go wrong – it didn’t and I’ll continue as usual. Spoke with the surgeon who implanted the two devices I have had for treatment and am scheduled for my four year checkup for breast cancer in March.

I am already enjoying the fact that the days are longer and I am looking forward to spring. I am very grateful that I was diagnosed at a time when I could actually be treated. I don’t know what the future will be but I have SO enjoyed these last couple of months. I am also so very grateful to have friends and family close by.
