So, some of you may have noticed that I have be eerily silent for the last five or so months. That is because immediately after my trip to Death Valley I found out that I had lung cancer, Stage 3a. The news, which I received while coming out of anesthesia in the recovery room really shocked me. After they removed 70% of my right lung I had three or so weeks of recovery before I started Chemotherapy which lasted for another three months. To say the last five months have been difficult would be an understatement. But I had my last chemo on February 28th, all my scans last week and the consultation with the Oncologist resulted in a clean bill of health right now. That is music to my ears. I am not as strong as I was, but I am doing a lot of stuff that amazes me, given what I have been through. Everyday is a little better...I just keep working on that.
Today was teeth cleaning day...chemo can mess with your body and the
general condition of your mouth, so I was actually looking forward to
it, more so than usual. but my hygienist, who has been giving me moral
support throughout had a little surprise for me today.
I had called her last week to tell her my good news and she had her work space all decorated in celebration of my good news! She is such a treasure!
Stay tuned for some fun stuff that I have on tap...I am making every effort to get a lot more of that into my life going forward.
