    Hi All, 
    Somehow the last three months just flew by doing blissfully normal things.  I'm up for the semi-annual brain MRI and CT Scan next Wednesday afternoon results scheduled for Thursday morning.  I've got the usual activities planned to help pass the time.  Overall I'm feeling pretty good heading into this scan, which is 15 months on targeted therapy.  For some reason the scanxiety hasn't hit yet (am I getting "used to" this????).    I just started the LiveStrong Program at the YMCA so I'll probably be too sore and wiped out to have the worry monkeys take over.  
    Irrespective of the results we are heading to Amelia Island the last week of January for our normal winter trip which I am really looking forward to.   In the meantime, I've placed a call to the clinic this morning to obtain the Valium for the MRI so I am locked and loaded for this go round.  Any prayers, thoughts, ju ju or good karma is appreciated as I head into this next round.   I'll keep you all posted. 
    Michelle

    Accepting the inevitability of ones mortality is one thing   Accepting when that life ends is another.  This reminds me of a phrase made popular by Arya Stark in the Game of Thrones series.   It goes something like.  “There is only one thing we say to Death, Not Today”.

    Interesting thoughts.
    I suppose you would probably get more banter if you weren't on a website called LUNGEVITY, 
    as in LONGEVITY, 
    as in long life,
    as in the will to live,
    as in self preservation,
    as in finding value in my current life despite my cancer, 
    as in not fighting but utilizing science to improve the quality of my life,
    as in my disease can be currently controlled,
    as in not being powerless and nothing is inevitable until the fat lady sings,
    as in believing in hope,
    as in believing and looking forward to tomorrow,
    as in believing in joy when I see the innocence and wonder in my grandchildren’s eyes,
    as in the absolute beauty of every sunrise and the privilege of participating in that,
    as in riding a bike along a beautiful ocean coastline,
    as in the thanks and gratitude I feel every single day to be living,
    as in I will probably be the first in line to agree that life is a complex difficult process,
    as in I still want to live as long as my quality of life outweighs the challenges of medicine and my participation in it. 
    Comedy-drama 2019 Movie PADDLETON addresses some of your thoughts.
    Take Care, DFK

    Roz reacted to G.A.M. in I've decided   
    I've elected the latest in radiation treatment for cancer at UPMC. They made my molds and mapped out my body y'day. They'll call in two to three weeks, after the physicist team do all the math. There will be four total treatments. They think I'll be cancer-free at that point.
    I'm still recovering from the last surgery and I'm not at all sure what another one would do to my body. I can always have the surgery down the road if the radiation doesn't work. That's my thought process anyway.
    Thanks for all the kind words and advice.

    Decisions are always good when they are finally made. Go forth with confidence that based on all the available data, you’re doing what’s best for you.  Don’t look back, forward march!
