I just made the appointment for a CT/PET scan.  It’s been almost a year. mid May 2014 is when I finished radiation, mid February was when I stopped chemotherapy. This week was a bit of an upset in small ways.  I had realized that three times now I’ve started working out. Which is amazing. I feel good enough to work out!  But every time...

It’s been so long since I’ve felt like writing. I thought I’d write about my experience in Mirival with my dear friend, but when it came down to it, I didn’t want to.  I think this time after treatment is so transitional, it’s hard to know where to put my feet and when to start walking forward again. But every day goes by...

I was standing on the deck overlooking the pond in Manton California. My shoulder was gently touching my husband’s; it was getting towards twilight, that magnificent time of day when everything is touched by the soft light of the goodbye sun.   The water was glass, flat and endlessly reflecting the sky. Small fluffy clouds paraded by slowly.  I...

It’s really become clear to me how what I’ve learned in the last few years benefited me during these last 9 months, recently with the book Keys to Ascension and the group at Raise the Planet, to just time put in meditating and praying.  I’m seeing it in how I work with the radiation and my experience of it.  The experience with radiation...

Words have power. Knowing what it is you are speaking and being precise about it does matter. I love looking up the definition of words and then playing with that, I have done it before here on my blog, and I’m gonna do it again. 🙂 Let’s talk Radiation. That word is defined simply as the emission of energy as electromagnetic waves or as...

I’ve seen beautiful moving heart wrenching portraits of people being challenged in life. People in situations you just can’t imagine, and yet the photographer captures the beauty on a soul level and transmits it somehow through the image. Yet being the subject of an image like that?

Last Saturday I came out of the chemo fog. I thought yeahaaaa! That gives me 10 days of “normal”. 1o days to feel good, to enjoy the kids, and a very very dear friend who’s coming in town this weekend. But then Monday I woke up with a cold. That’d be just a small thing, but in the cancer world….

I feel wrapped too tight cushioned. Boxed in. I fight. I struggle The word present floats by As I walk upstairs to bed it occurs to me that I’m being treated like something fragile and precious.

with the constant presence of my husband and my friends who cooked and drove kids around and kept me company I was able to devote all of my attention to my well being. I am indeed blessed.
