Xeloda cycle 12, cancer perks, say what?

Hello Friends,

Oh my gosh, the weather here in Tn is just beautiful. Sunny but not too hot, with afternoon showers that cool things down. Long days with daylight till around 9 pm. Just around that time the fireflies come out and light the forest surrounding us with twinkle lights. It is simply magical. I have to say I'm adjusting to life here in Tennessee quite nicely. I just didn't believe I could love a place as much as I loved Flower Mound Texas, but here I am. I'm smitten! How is it where you are? Are you enjoying your Summer as well?

You see, my cancer has gone beyond the breast and now exists in many parts of my body. Having spread to a major organ makes a cancer a metastasis.

Hello Friends,

A three post blog week? Unheard of right? Well I have been trolling my name on google and couldn't believe all the old articles, posts and blogs I had floating out there in the web quagmire. This one was pretty detailed with my "story" Of course. there have been a lot of things that have happened since the original posting of the on . If you have been following in recent history, you've shared those new events with me. If you are just finding me for the first time, then this story will show you the beginning. Reading through my recent (three years now) blog posts here will catch you up on the middle. You'll just have to keep following to find out how it all ends. LOL!

soooo, here is the posted article I wrote on ezine:

Cancer! You hear that word and it sends terror rippling down your spine. Cancer has stalked me since I was 8 yrs old. I am now 45. Let me share a short story of the cancer in my life.
