I've read a couple of very good blog posts lately, and instead of writing my version of them, I am going to include links to them so you can read them yourselves.
First, read this writer's take on the new cdc report about colon cancer screening: Michellwillwin
Then, read this post from Ann about things you should and shouldn't say to people with cancer (and her snarky responses). Ann is a great writer, and is able to talk about tough subjects with her always present sense of humor: butdoctorihatepink
And then, for an update on my grandsons, you can read about them here: loveissugarfree
These are all well written, easy reads. Please check them out!
As for me, life has been GREAT. I have been busy with my kids and grandkids, having lunch with friends, and helping my mom with some doctor appointments. I have 2 Herceptin infusions left, and then I am DONE. SOON!! In mid August I will have a MUGA scan for my heart and a chest/abdomen/pelvic ct scan to make sure I am still clear of cancer. Then, I will see my onc., and have my final Herceptin. Oh, and a bunch of blood tests too. I think after that I won't have to see my oncologist for 6 months. Won't that be wonderful?!?!
Near my birthday this month we are going up to Duluth for a few days. Last year on my birthday I told everyone to plan to spend a few days with me in Duluth this year. My girls, their 2 husbands, and my 2 grandsons will all be up there with Rich and I. I had been getting treatment for cancer the past 2 summers, so I really wanted to do something fun this year!
We all feel so blessed. God has been good to us!
Hope all are enjoying the summer--around here it'll be gone too soon!
