October/November update 2006
This will have to be brief as I am just about to take little one to school. Life is so busy right now. We moved to our new apartment a couple of weeks ago and I am loving it there. It is very convenient for everything and it's our own place !! We are starting to make plans again and that is good.
I started a part time evening job at a local store four nights a week and fell so good to be back at work and amongst people. The customers are great and I get to have a good laugh and have made some new friends. It is the first time in years that I have felt ready to work and not scared or have anxiety attacks.
I got accepted into University to restart my nursing training and start in March 2007, full-time. I am so excited that finally I get to follow my dream.
My radiotherapy starts on Tuesday 14th November. I have my simulation tomorrow...fingers crossed.
I have now lost 22 pounds in weight and am on my way...nearly 10% of my starting weight. I am thrilled with how I feel and my health in general and hope that the readiotherapy is the last stage in heading for that elusive cure.
I want to give others hope that ther is another side to this terrible disease - it sometimes takes a long time to get there, but please never give up hope.
