UPDATE


I just wanted to stop in and visit with all my friends.
I have been gone for quite sometime and I apologise for not keeping in touch more.

I can report though that I'm about to go through my 5th treatment next week.
My husband and I travel up to Chicago for these chemo treatments every month
and stay overnight at a wonderful hotel.

The treatment are not terrible by any means but they do wipe me out and make me nauseous!
 A little chemo brain sets in too, and my head gets a little cloudy.

I have a sixth treatment at the end of September and then(fingers crossed)that's it for a while
My  scans look clear too, so the insides are looking as good as the outside.
I always liked to match!

My thyroid has been acting up too, making things just a little bit more difficult.
All in all, I'm doing well,.. my Dr even has a smile on her face these days.

So please forgive me for ignoring you for so long and thank you for sticking with me.
I still have a little ways to go.to the finish line, but I will try and stop in more often..

I have to go and have my blood drawn in a bit
 so I'll close now I think.

Keep smiling everybody and thank you all for your kind notes and sincere good wishes!
They seem to be working!!!

Til next time my friends!
XOXO

  13. Spill I will, girl.

    You're a writer? Cool shoes. Me, too (kinda, sorta). I know for a fact, however, you gotta whole lotta intelligence behind those two ears, girl; thus, I wanna give you my finite existence: to intrinsically value the Great Beyond which I’ve learned to appreciate, to visualize the fundamental reality of infinity is why I‘m here for a teeny-weeny amount of time. Looky here...

    Precisely why I had our ‘philanthropic + epiphany’ (=so much to give + vision): wanna see a perfectly cognizant, fully-spectacular, Son-ripened-Heaven?? … yet, I’m not sure if we're on the same page if you saw what I saw. Greetings, earthling. Because I was an actual NDE on the outskirts of the Great Beyond at 15 yet wasn’t allowed in, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven’s Big-Bang’s gonna be like: meet this advanced, bombastic, ex-mortal Upstairs for the most juvenile-lip-service, ultra-groovy, picturesque-paradox, pleasure-beyond-measure, Ultra-Yummy-Reality-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, kick-some-ass, party-hardy, robust-N-risqué-passion you DO NOT wanna miss the sink-your-teeth-in-the-smmmokin’-hot-deal enveloping, engulfing our catch-22-excitotoxins. Cya soon, girl…
