Good bye to 2012.
Today was interesting. Those vets who say putting a chip in an animals back through a syringe and says it doesn't hurt.... lied. Basically what I had done today was have 5 tiny chips put into my back through a syringe to create the markers for both the chemo and then the radiation. And they hurt. If I wasn't under a lead tarp I would have been bitting at the arms of the doctors.
They know now not to use that analogy again.... :)

I feel pretty good, I am tired after my first gene specific therapy today and all the injections.
I wish I could take a shower but it's a sink bath for me for a couple of days.

And tonight I will be spending time with my cats enjoying the last night of my Christmas tree and a nice meal (I hope it will be anyway)
I will be saying good bye to this year 11 pounds lighter and the cancer aside, much much healthier.... mentally and physically.

be authentically you...

Hi
Happy New Year everyone how many of you plan stay up to welcome in the New Year
No plans here a quiet night at home. Still dealing with a little mindless eating. That happens when I get stressed with my self. I can sure find good reasons to stay home form the gym but come 1/2 /13 I am making my self get back in to a routine and go first thing in the morning and get it off my to do list. I found some good quotes to post around the house and get me re sparked. I have my streaks in writing just like they had me do when I first joined spark the long term goal midterm goal and short term goal all in place.


I hope you have
A year in which you cherish
The past year's memories and
Enjoy the memories you make in
2013

Ree and Fran, Thank you so much for the warm and loving support! I have taken the weekend to get myself prepared, primarily emotionally for a short quick treatment and to have this done and hopefully over with within the month of January. It is very small and was caught very early, pretty much by accident. So I am hopeful. I am also going to be treated by a team of doctors who have treated me before and are very familiar with the weirdness of ME. I can be quite particular about who does the treating and how it is done. (Health care providers can make the worse patients -even though it's been a while since I have worked in the hospital).

But I have a great team of doctors that really know what they are doing. And I trust them very much.
But thank you so much for the great support! I will keep you posted.


be authentically you...

It's late night here in Nottingham, I couldn't sleep so got up again. I am playing Words with my youngest son in Switzerland too! Multi tasking !
Thinking of new year I do not want to make resolutions , they lead to a feeling of failure . Streaks maybe.? I like that idea Fran,,I often have fresh starts , when I have caught up on sleep I shall plan what's my best option . Irene

Thanks for the great supportive post Irene for Lynne its often hard to deal with our families response to our problems.. Your Spark friends are here for you Lynne

Another cold gray day here in Spokane and its now snowing again not much just enough to need the windshield wipers if you are out driving around. home form church and watching foot ball and sparking along. then will have to catch up my reading of Spark news. still going with my plan of not making any Resolutions for 2013 i do have streaks in mind and the have start and end dates goals and streaks sound more sparky to me and so much to restart when a slip on the trail happens .
Need to get my Christmas Thank you notes done and in the mail and get a little Christmas gift in the mail for my brother.
Sounds like a lot of us are down with colds and flu this week. think i am coming down with one so getting the liquids in and taking it easy no need to go out in the snow. we have not had blue sky since last Sunday 12/23 when we went to see the Eagles .
heading back to the Gym soon see how i feel tomorrow so easy to talk my self out if going. before Christmas it was I had so many things to get done now i use its cold and I have a cold. need to remember how good we feel after doing a work out.
Happy New Year Team

Lynn. So sorry you had bad news you are right to stay positive . You can overcome any remarks made by you dads wife,. Put negativity and thoughtless comments aside. This is no time for bitterness which builds up acid inside you,. Stay calm have self belief and in the medical profession caring for you,
We will all be wishing you well, yes sleep is a healer , it's good you can sleep well.,

got bad news right before Christmas, thought refused to have it upset my fun...
yesterday I went to talk to my father and his wife about it, as it can be something serious. I have a small cancerous mass at the base of my spine, it's very treatable and was caught very early so I am in good standing. I was staying positive and moving forward with all the all the plans.
Now I need to get past what my step-mother said to me

I have finished sorting just about everything in the apartment. It feels pretty good to have a very clean house.
I am sleeping a lot today. Which is good for me.

be authentically you...

My day so far consists of Bob going to the show so he wouldn't be home while the cleaning woman is here. We talked together, she is really nice. I have spent the rest of my morning on SP. Boring!!!!

Depression is the impression left by fear. Be willing to fight the fear. Conquer it with love.

Racey and i just got back from our walk and are trying to get warm

its another gray day here the sky has not been blue since the Dec 23 ! so you know its winter time. no snow since the 24th and that was not much just enough you had to brush it off the car windshield .
Its time to get back to sparking 100% and not the 85% the gym was not high on my today list those four days but did get walking in and managed no mindless eating
. think I did start maintenance a little early the little red note was touched think it was under the dinning room table most of the time.
Decided to start counting the days until May 5 2013 which is the date of The Annual Bloomsday Race in Spokane its been a event here since 1978 !
