    Response to shaved head

    My diagnosis
    Added Jan 19, 2014

    I have many baseball caps, for warmer weather, and have so many knitted hats for colder weather. I also had fun buying hats at Kohls when they were on sale. My mantra thru all this is that it is temporary. My hair will grow back. I am thankful I have a curable disease and all my side effects will eventually disappear. You need to put things…

    What I've learned
    Added Jan 7, 2014

    Laughter it the best medicine
    I laugh every day, i live everyday with appreciation of the loved ones who stand by my side.
    I have learned to push through the hard times, having many animals as my mental therapy.

    I have learned to walk away from drama and some times I do not use my mouth filter and it feels really good.

    After going through a double mastectomy for breast cancer and having the miracle of not having any lymph nodes effected, I feel very blessed. No radiation, no chemotherapy. Just regular monitoring to be sure I stay cancer free. As I was healing (there was allot more pain than I expected) and fighting my lowered immunity for a month, I realize…

  • Cancer - The Secret Change

    Living with cancer
    Added Jan 31, 2015
    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.

    This can be a useful tool for yo…

    Great Christmas

    Just some thoughts
    Added Apr 12, 2017

    Was the day before Christmas
    and all through the house
    I’m the only one stirring
    that great big pot
    The stocking are stuffed
    and so am I
    with Christmas candy
    and a big pizza pie.
    With the second Christmas here
    and no cancer in sight
    That’s the best Christmas gift
    that God had in his sight.
    All the family is here
    except my bro and wi…
