When you are faced with terminal cancer, one of the things that you inevitably end up doing is evaluating the things you want to do before you die. I was fortunate enough that my family accommodated one of my last wishes by planning a family trip to Disney this last May, where I was able … Continue reading Help Me Complete This!

Today was emotional for me.I don't really have a reason for being emotional today, other than the fact that I just woke up feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and anxious without cause.Radiation went well, considering the fact that you know, its radiation. Afterward, I was scheduled to see Dr. H (my psychiatrist at the cancer center), … Continue reading Emotions are fickle
The worst feeling is when your doctor suggests that your parents aren't suited to be your caregivers. Its not for lack of willingness, but because mum herself is ill, and I worry for her health. I get stressed about her well-being and feel guilty when I know she isn't feeling well but is slaving away … Continue reading Something I didn’t want to hear
Well, it has been one heck of a day. Ups and downs for sure… I had an appointment this afternoon to do some follow-up testing. (I completed a similar set of tests at the onset of diagnosis.)

I had two strange dreams, both dealing with church, which was new and weird. I told Mosha about them, and he also thought they were intriguingly odd. … Continue reading Manic Monday

It's never the same without you, and I always remember the last Christmas we … Continue reading An email to my brother
Today was a good day. It started with being able to sleep in until 9am. I was still tired and sluggish from the night before (we stayed up playing Hand & Foot with the Finches until about 2am), but I knew that I had to get up and get to cooking. To my surprise, my … Continue reading Dia de Gracias
I went on a wild hunt for my collection of stamps and my embossing heat tool, which led to me pulling out all of the Christmas decorations and putting them up. I'm missing some...particularly a set of moose stuffed animals that I put out on my entertainment center. (My mom and pops gave them to … Continue reading Progression.
We decided to take a day trip to visit Pops for his birthday. I keep thinking, you never know what the next year may bring, or when someone’s last birthday will be…so best to make the most of each one. Pops was absolutely thrilled that we came to visit. We bought him a new watch, … Continue reading
