Just a little news about my ongoing health problems since readers have so kindly inquired. My staples are out (whoopee!) and we're sort of back in the land of limbo. Next step is an initial appointment with an oncologist in a couple weeks to discuss chemotherapy.
Meanwhile, I'm free to build my strength back up as I feel better each day. My ribs still ache of course and I still tire very easily, but I'm improving. I can even drive if I'm not too tired.
I want to thank everyone for your thoughts, prayers and good vibes. I'm grateful to all of you. Thankfully, the cancer is out of my body and I am going to survive this.
