Sorry for the lack of posts, I haven’t been around much these days due to being pretty sick for about a month now, after many tests and many meds pneumonia is what finally showed up on my second chest xray yesterday. So.. I’m on another antibiotic and this should be the last one.. fingers crossed. It seems my immune systems is crapped out so it’s getting more difficult for illness’s to go away per normal. It could quite a while for it to get back to normal.. if ever. Ah well.. I’m just looking forward to not coughing all night and to start my walks again.
Once I’m feeling better I will be posting more..

I got a call from my oncologist’s nurse last evening to give me the results of my Bone Marrow Biopsy.. now I did get my PET scan results last Friday but didn’t want to say anything until the BMB came back, for obvious reasons.. and I am very please to announce that my cancer is now in remission! I can’t tell you how great I feel with this news although I’m sure you could imagine.
I still have quite a while to go before feeling back to normal.. if ever due to the chemo. I will still need to get that lovely poison every six months (once a week for four weeks) for the next two years because this particular cancer has a high rate of coming back. My immune system is still shot and for how long who knows.. I’m just glad that for now I will be around to be able to heal regardless of how long it takes. In doing so I will still need to live by what I have learned over the last 6 months and apply it daily, moment by moment and keep the stress to a minimum and really and truly be happy and enjoy life. I know this will also help keep the cancer at bay and having gone through what I just went through the importance of it is huge.
I also want to say that I know I couldn’t have gone through what I have without the love and support of so many wonderful people, close by as well as far away. It was all of your thoughts, prayers and well wishes that truly made a huge difference. I’ve learned a lot of from all of you and I am internally grateful for what you have shown me.
This is such great way to start the Autumn season for me.. which just so happens to be my favorite time of year. I had taken some photos to commemorate the first day of Autumn and what better way to mix my news and my favorite season..
I wanted to take some pictures of those lovely red apples hanging from the trees but they were all gone!! Did find this one underneath one of those trees..
