My sister told me I had to do a blog since I haven't been doing one.
Yes, I'm 5 years cancer free. Collecting antiques saved my life. Sounds funny doesn't it but I love vintage costume jewelry; I went to put on a necklace and felt a lump on the side. When I went to ENT they told me it was a brachial cyst and if it wasn't removed it would get bigger. I asked about cancer and they said less than 1% chance no need for testing. Received a call one Thursday night at 7:30 from the doctor who said it was stage 4. I've never smoked and like many I have a fruity cocktail is we go out (seldom) or on holidays when my brother-in-law makes me a "Fuzzy Navel" 7 weeks chemo 7 weeks radiation but because in the throat and tongue couldn't eat. They told me had I not been overweight I would not have made it.
After getting better I slowly put on the pounds to me it meant no cancer and cancer makes you lose weight. However, being overweight can contribute to increased risk of cancer so I am trying to get to a weight that is healthy but not skinny. Secondary cancers from the treatment are possible so healthy.
Yes I still antique, yard sales, auction sales but I've learned to curtail my pu.rchases as I'm not a seller. I love to sit and read a great cozy mystery surrounded in the history of beautiful things. I've actually read antique mysteries so who knows!
I would love to do that Longest Yard Sale just for the trek and seeing the U.S.
Hoping to be successful at losing the weight but staying healthy
