And So it began

"ONCE UPON A TIME"....there came along this little lump...insignificant really when you compare it to the entire world of lumps. That is, right up to the point that it wasn't...insignificant I mean............... and so began my journey.

A NEWER SHADE OF I more then SURVIVE...I am learning to THRIVE...

OF COURSE... we all know things are bound to get a little crazy with a surprise around most every corner...not to mention an assortment of bumps and bruises along the way...but I am ever thankful for them all...they have all made me who I am. So buckle up, hold on tight and enjoy the ride thru what I lovingly refer to as LIFE

     Well.....after 13 days off radiation....I am finally back at it and hopefully with no more final treatment is APRIL 4th!!!!!

     Life has been pretty mellow....which I guess comes with a persistent (on again off again) fever, cough and general "YUCKY" feeling.  After a few trips back and forth between the surgeon (having to drain the boccie ball) and the radiation doc (before he cleared me for more treatments) and finally getting put on some powerful antibiotics to "see if that would make a difference" with the cough and tightness in my chest....I am feeling pretty "cancer normal".  If only I was one of those normal people that get sick and actually have tests that come back with indication of what is wrong...instead of just an elevated white count...we may have gotten on these "power drugs" sooner and not missed all this "zapping" time....but then again...normal is sooooo over rated!!

     VoR drove across the country with Random Wisdom who has moved home to save some money (and take care of me) before her wedding.  I am enjoying having her home and being able to spend this last bit of "just her time" before we send her off to her new life....her perspective may be a little different...LOL!!!  She is frantically looking for a job to stash some money away.  Between finishing radiation and starting to do some serious wedding planning so things around here are bound to get WAY more exciting.

(FYI...Spring always starts on my birthday...just sayin)
