The last time we were together, I was going for my final chemo treatment and seeing the surgeon.  I'm happy to report that the last round of chemo was uneventful and the side effects were almost non-existent.  I'm glad my body gave me a break because the emotional aspe...

So, I had almost finished this whole blog which was a bit longer and then lost it at 12:43 a.m.  I'm too tired to be really choked but I'm somewhat choked.  Brad's been telling me to go to bed for the past 2 hours but I really want to get this out so if at some point i...

I couldn't do it.  I couldn't even decide. 

I am usually the first to sit in the chair on hair day.  Mostly because my appointment is at 9 am and Nic isn't there.  On this day, my beautiful seester picked me up so that I wouldn't have to be alone if the shave was o...

On this, the eve of my hair appointment, I have a dilemma.  I usually look forward to my hair appointment because I get rid of the nasty grey roots, I get a really fun and cool hair colour, I get my head massaged (LOVE!), I get to see and chat with Monika and I get to...

The morning after the diagnosis, I woke way earlier than I should have for a Saturday morning.  My first thought upon awakening was "I have breast cancer."  Quite a sobering thought for 5:30 in the morning.  I just wanted to go back to sleep and forget about it for a w...
