It's good to be alive


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm writing today because I'm happy to be alive. Just about a year ago, I began visiting the doctor where eventually my dx was arrived at. The doctors told me I had 6 mo to maybe a year.

Now its a yaer later. In general I feel vey well. I have tolerated chemo easily and really haven't been ill. Except for some ill advised meds and some bad blood counts, I'm doing well.

When I think that I wasn't sure I would be alive at Christmas...

All I can say is don't trust estimates and savor each day.

Hope you all can celebrate your life.

Oh Mary,

I am so glad you are here as well. I am also grateful for your gentle reminder that we all should celebrate each and every day of our lives..............I needed that reminder today. Some days I struggle with that, and when I actually saw your words ~~ well ~~ they were powerful.

Thanks Mary, and here's to MANY more years,
