Twenty years ago, I had my kids recite that Mississippi spelling rhyme, every time we crossed this bridge (Franklin Bridge).
Day 10 (after chemo) I am feeling much more "Alive". The morning was bright and active, not the "slog" I've had the past week. I am sleeping better, coughing less. Our 10" of April 4 snow is almost melted away. I walked over 2 miles today (without losing breath!) and had to shed my coat to the balmy 48 degree day. It is tender sweet to be close to SO many dear friends. I bumped into an old friend walking home and had a lovely conversation. He is an author and we planned for Spring and Summer talks on the porch to discuss my writing and publishing project.
It remains "bizarre" to feel more and more alive, yet know that I am in essence "dying". PET scan shows that I have many tumors throughout my lungs, between lungs, on the thyroid, in neck and NEW NEWS a spot on my liver. Hottest spots are large tumor in upper right lung, liver and neck / mammary glands. I will continue to live BIG, what else to do, until I can no longer. LIfe is good...really!
