    Although I was outdoors all day long, I had a great time with my hubby at the airsoft park. Here on the west side of oahu, the weather was on and off drizzle. Which means mostly sunny while rainy, odd I know. In the "mainland" anytime rain comes, the sky is dark and gloomy and the weather is cold. Here, na-ah, sun all day long, and random showers. Anyway, I sat all day "talking story" with my new friends the local folk, and helping out with this event. I thought my meds would run out on me towards the end, so I had to come back home quick after it was over for another dose. Few! Made it! Just as the weather, I was pretty "normal"!! :D haha

    It's been 6 months since my last treatment, so my hair is growing back (only because I shaved it after my last chemo treatment), and I'm back to work. Feeling better, not great, but life goes on!!! Feeling positive right now! Happy to share with like folk!!

    Nor quite sure what to post for the first time, because I hate being a complainer. I feel blessed to have been able to catch this disease during stage II. I also feel guilty that I've survived and yet I've lost my father to stomach cancer at age 70, just 4 months before my own diagnosis. I now have lymphodema on my left arm, my nerve pain feels like I'm touching the ends of electrical cables, and I still feel stabbing pains where the tumor was. I realize that my body has "been through a lot", but I can't help feeling frustrated. I just have to remember that there are younger patients than myself, which pushes me to be brave and hang in there. I must remember to pray, and praise the almighty for allowing me just another day. I'll take 'em! Bless you!
