Hello everyone!! Just popped in to see how everyone is doing.
53nancy - I'm doing well, thank you for asking. Your 5 days away sound wonderful!! My hubby and I are planning a few days away in Aug and again in Oct. I'm so looking forward to it. The last couple of years have obviously been stressful. So we need some time to just be "us" again and not patients.
DodgersGirl - I feel exactly the same way as you. I now have enough hair to have a short hairstyle. I don't feel like I standout as a cancer patient anymore. I feel like I can blend back into society again!! It's a good feeling!!
ctmbsikia - such a beautiful photo!! We are going to the Smokey Mountains in September for our family vacation. We didn't get a vacation last year due to my diagnosis, treatments & surgery. So I am really looking forward to it this year!!
I'm approaching my 1 year mark since my last chemo!! This Saturday will be that day!! We are going to the Ohio State Fair and seeing a Styx & Cheap Trick concert!! What a difference a year makes!! Last year I was having my last treatment & ringing the bell. This year I'm spending the day at the fair & then seeing 2 bands from my high school days!! I'm so excited I can't stand it!!
