Little Blimp in Flight, But Smooth Sailing Now

October 17, 2008

Update: I had to undergo 10 days of radiation for a tumor on my clivical (sp?) this past spring. Made it weak, and then broke it. Not fun, but just put my arm in a sling for a few weeks to keep my shoulder stable and doing great now.

So as of March, 2008, I've had 2 years of remission. I also have a new man in my life. There may even be wedding bells in the near future! There is NO WAY two years ago, laying in that awful nursing home I would have dreamed that this day would come!!! I'm so very grateful ~ to my church family who took such good care of me; to my UK Hospital Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. William Shaefer who put my back together so I'd walk again; to my Onocologist at UK's Markey Cancer Center - Dr. Kevin McDonagh and my nurse team leader, Galisha Watts. Without them, I know that I wouldn't be here telling you all my wonderful news. Three Cheers to our support network who make life a REAL posibility!!!!

Hugs to you all,
