On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Now what?

So, I was home from the hospital for a few days and back again - good thing too because this time I was septic and staff couldn't move fast enough to run several antibiotics simultaneously.  I feel better now but no one's talking about shipping me home.

Steve says Brix is totally bereft and sleeps with his head on my pillow. The testing is getting more difficult. This afternoon I had two hours testing for oxygen, another CT scan, etc.   What's next?


  1. Septic? That's serious. What caused it, do they know? Can Brix come visit you? I sure hope they get all this under control and soon. Thanks for letting us know what's going on.

  2. Thank heaven they caught this and turned it around. wishing for you that your strength continues to return.
