What I do know is I'm going to do my best to go on with things...like living! I will admit that it's really hard some days to not let the uncertainty creep in and mess with my head. Maybe I might just have to settle with putting aside a few pity party days every now and then. I don't care who you are or how strong you think you are...crap like this is bound to mess with your head.
My first project of the new year is to try a mostly vegetarian eating plan for 21 days. I found it on the internet and I eat most of the foods anyway. I will follow it loosely which means I will eat fish and chicken sometimes but I'm definitely cutting out red meat. It's very hard on the liver and mine knows it when I have a steak!!!
I was also very very lucky this year and received a Kindle for Christmas...it arrives today!!! I'm going to try and read more than romance novels and try books I might otherwise not read. It's funny but since the cancer diagnosis I feel this great need to know more about this world and other people.
You know what...looking back on this year I don't feel so bad after all. I still have a super husband, a cute dog, two crazy cats, wonderful friends and family, great job and for now my health. Isn't that good enough...you betcha!!!
So every once in awhile, if I post some god awful account of what I'm going through...remember it's just my pity party and it won't last long!

PS...my mother in-law sent back a dvd set of Celine Dion in Las Vegas...just looked at it a bit but it's just fabulous. Wasn't that sweet...the whole family (Canadian) knows how much I love Celine. Daniel took me to my first Celine concert and I loved it. She was great live and in color :)

For some reason I'm dragging my heels on getting the specialists information to my oncologist so they can have" the talk" about my diagnosis and the experimental surgery/chemo the specialist wants to do. I'm just going to do it on Monday...that's right...on Monday. To hold myself to it I'll even post back here on Monday that I've done it.
On December 7th I see my beloved primary physician who left the practice she was in almost a year ago and I couldn't find here...well I did and not a minute too soon. She is the most one of the most caring physicians I have met in my 51 years. I know I'm back in good hands now! I also go to the dentist that same day for the first time since chemo ended...ugh...you just know how I love going there.
Daniel got back yesterday from a week by himself in Canada visiting family. One of his cousins sent back candy...and lots of it for me...gotta luv that guy. I'm going to have to hide that stuff :) Anyway, he got some space after helping me out those 11 months on chemo. And "helping me out" sounds so lame...he kept me alive is more like it. I had a stomach/cold bug when he was gone and the first part caused nausea...one day it was pretty bad. It brought back the bad times and I hope never to go back there. So fingers and toes crossed that won't happen...but I'll handle it again if it does. For now it's gone and the candy is in....

Many people who have explored the avenues of self-healing have heard about wheatgrass. Wheatgrass juice is believed to benefit people in numerous ways: cleansing the lymph system, building the blood, restoring balance in the body, removing toxic metals from the cells, nourishing the liver and kidneys and restoring vitality.
Currently I’m buying mine frozen from the health food store. It comes in individual pockets and I simply thaw two each morning and drink them down. I just started back up since I had the hives so I’m not sure if this is working for me or not.
I may want to explore growing the grass myself as it’s much less expensive. Maybe I’ll just restart my juicing routine. That involves regular veggies like celery, peppers, spinach etc. I would get my “veggie bowl” ready the night before and juice each morning. I’ll do some this weekend and post a pic for you.
