FABULOUS NEWS! (updated)


Time to party!

The spot/'lucky penny' in my back is the same-still very small, not changing...Next check: 6 months unless symptoms occur

Now, on to homework= designing an entire condo (and all the 'fix-ins') in Shanghai plus all the other fun stuff for other classes.

Check out a poem (from a few years ago) and a drawing I did this summer about my experience with dealing with the new spot in my back: American Pain Foundation submission

Today I am thankful for: beautiful weather, healthy (as I can be) body, music and car windows down

I was also inspired today by a lady at Pilates. I do not know her name and much about her but she boldly told the teacher how she had 2 tumors removed 2-3 weeks ago! One in her lower back and one under her armpit. She was doing so well and it made me want to say something. I never know what to say without sounding strange but I felt her pain and determination and said a prayer for her!

Adventure for tomorrow: Classes all day, presenting my 'story' to Bio class and a haircut!


Ciao bella!

Just saw your comment on Kris's Crazy sexy cancer blog and had to read your blog immediately. You really are an inspiration and I added a link to your blog on mine http://fightagainstcancer.blogspot.com/

I'm a skin cancer survivor and I "see" a lot of myself and the experiences I went through in your posts. Great attitude- keep on blogging!
