A Humorous Look at the Bright Side of Cancer... and There Is One

April 3rd, 2012

Three Years & Counting

It’s been three years since my breast cancer diagnosis. Like I keep saying, I thought I’d be dead by now. Is it morbid to think that way? Or am I just being thankful for still being around?

4/3/2009: Diagnosis & road trip to Oceanside, California

4/3/2010: Road trip to Gleneden, Oregon

4/3/2011: Did absolutely nothing

Today: Went hiking in the rain

Next April, I need to go on another fun vacation. Hiking in the rain is all fine and dandy, but hiking along the beach in Kihei would be a whole lot nicer.

  1. Happy Easter, Glad you are doing well. Bobby went to urologist yesterday and got a 0.05 from blood test. Just cancer Dr. left to go.Glad your husband got a job. Things are looking up. Now all we have to do is sell our property (not where we live).
    Blessings to you & your family.

  2. 4/11/2012 I have to officially tell you thanks on your blog. I am hoping others can see what a kind person you were to visit my friend during her chemo treatment today. You were EXACTLY what she needed to distract her during her 4th round. And I was so glad you were available for questions that ONLY someone who had gone through the process could answer. I felt SO useless and stupid today not being able to offer any tangeable hope, but you popped in and it all changed. You are an angel. Thank you.

  3. Thanks Rae. Actually, I know a Rachel and a Rae. I’m thinking this is the “Rae” though.

    I’m wishing me many more years of health and happiness, too. Is that wrong?!

  4. Claudia & Bobby,

    I hope that this next doctor appointment goes well, also.

    Any luck on your property selling at all? Kind of bad times for real estate, isn’t it.

    I would love to get together with you two again sometime this summer. If you’re ever up this way, my daughter serves the biggest ice cream cones you’ve ever seen at Snow Goose.

    I picked a bad time to stop eating ice cream, eh?!

    I’ll treat you guys to cones, so let me know when.

  5. Bonnie,

    You are not stupid or useless in any way, shape, or form. You are a kind friend to someone who needed you.

    I’m glad we could both be there for her.

    Wish we were all going out to lunch for fun instead of sitting in a chemo center, but it is what it is and we made the best of it.

    Take care.
