Today is the day I start my battle.
I will be starting my chemo & radiation treatments today and they will go on for 6 weeks.
An operation will follow sometime in the summer along with more chemo, but I am taking one day at a time! Remember"This moment in time!"
It is a relief in some ways to get this started. I think I have gone through every test they can possibly think of and then some!
My spirits are good and every night I think of just how lucky I really am.
My life is lived day by day. I have a positive outlook and I am a happy person. I have so many wonderful people in my life and that includes not only my family but everyone I have met through my catering and cooking classes & culinary tours! The support and good wishes that are being sent my way is paving a wide bright future for me. I love you all!
I see the good side of this experience. I realize that my life has been touched by so many people.
Now I will have the opportunity to slow down for a little while as I concentrate on beating this. I know my healthy outlook and my exuberance for life will shine through.
I realize just how many people are out there that I know! Some of you have my cookbook or have been to my classes. But I know that you are cooking good food and living your life with gusto!
So remember to live your life today~ be kind to yourself and others... what you put out there surely does come back to you!!!
AND~I don't want to preach but GO GET YOUR COLONOSCOPY!!!!!
You need to take care of yourself!! don't delay ~don't wait.. it doesn't get better on it's own.. you have to take a pro-active stance with your health... your health is everything!!! nothing else matters if you are not feeling well!!
Take care of YOU!!! you deserve it!
love to all!!!
