    Your blogs are inspiring and well written, you sound like a really intelligent girl. I've been sitting here for an hour or more reading all about you. I was diagnosed with stage four esophageal/stomach cancer in July of 2013 and relate a lot to what you have gone through. I'm in what my Dr. calls partial remission due to the fact that the PET scan was done close to the last radiation on a place just under my collar bone, but everything else looks good. So three months till the next scan and I pray for an all clear. Prayers are with all fighting this battle.

    4/12/14- Had so much fun on our yearly family camping trip at Grand Canyon National Park. We spent 3 nights and 3 days surrounded by nature at Mather's Campground on the South Rim. We enjoyed roasting marshmallows, hiking, sight seeing, watching the lunar eclipse, and just spending quality time with the family. Next year we plan on either coming back to the Canyon to camp down in the canyon or heading up further north to enjoy the National Parks in Utah.

    4/13/14- Taking in the amazing view of the Grand Canyon. It was a very spiritual experience. I feel so blessed to be able to see one of earth's natural wonders.

      We went through there in 83, do you remember the scene in Chevy Chase's Vacation movie where he walks up and looks up and down the canyon and says, "Ok very nice time to go" or something like that? That was me. I liked it, but wouldn't spend a day wandering through it. I guess I don't have enough patience. Now put me on a dirt bike to tear up some trails and I might stay a day or two.

    Finally found a wig that closely resembles my pre-cancer treatment hair. Currently my hair is about 1 inch in length. Until it gets to be at least 2 inches, I'll continue playing with my new wig and my hats.
