one year for me too

Yesterday was one year since the Dr gave me the bad PET scan results, said I probably had about a year to live. I had my first 3 days of chemo the Mon - Wed of Thanksgiving week and on Thanksgiving week my friend shaved my head. Here I am a year later with mo sign of cancer and a mass of curly silver hair. I haven't yet cut or styled it and am enjoying the hair God gave me., I tell people the " Master" does my hair for free! The cancer has left it scars sexually and we haven't dealt with that yet. Since the reversal surgery I have a constant pain in the butt. Hopefully I have become more loving and less of a pain in the butt. Last year when cancer was spreading in my body I became joyfully aware that it couldn't enter my soul. Maybe I am goofy, just rejoicing over the obvious, but isn't it wonderful to ponder that our souls can't die of cancer, heart attacks, car accidents, terrorists attacks, or even old age? I have just read a wonderful novel called " Cry of Stone" by Michael Obrien and it depicts in a beautiful way how connected we all are. It made me think of all my sisters on this board and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to lose and find themselves in something not about cancer., It may be a novel, but it's message is truer than many non fiction stuff I have read.

Congratulations Debbie on definately beating the odds. It just goes to show that we are NOT statistics but individual, strong willed, people who are definately not ready to throw in the towel.

Here's to many many more wonderful years.

s Debbie

I remember well those days for you a year ago!! And how scary it all was. It was at that time when you began to be such an inspiration for so many other ladies posting on CC. I would not even begin to guess at all the lives you have touched.
Courage and grace while under fire. That's you, for sure!!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
