Picture your nutty old aunt. Extra points if she's wearing a caftan. Double extra points if she dyes her hair with henna. Triple extra points for rhinestone jewelery. Oh, erase that silly little punting dog. Got the picture? Good. She is my goal!
If you took a moment to take a look at my profile & if you are a praying person, I ask only for one small prayer. I don't want a thread started, nor do I want any kind of notification to ping lists. I never know what to say back to people who express concern for me. I don't do drama queen very well & almost feel like that is what I'm being in writing this on my homepage.
Anyway, I have breast cancer & it has spread to my bones. I may never be free of it, but I may be able to live with it, God willing, for years. The doctor put me on medication that will deprive my system & the cancer of estrogen. Hopefully that will knock the cancer way back. The effectiveness of this treatment will be tested in about a month, unless there's some kind of emergency before then.
BTW, you can drop me a hello in FReepmail. I wouldn't have put *anything* on my page about the cancer if I meant for it to put distance between myself & others here. It's just, I am more than the tumor, which is why I don't wanna make my cancer into the sole topic of discussion.
May 29th update... The anti-estrogen treatment was not getting the job done, so I had a port installed this morning & round one of chemotherapy began today. Round two will be in about three weeks.
