Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

The numbers

Round Three of Chemo over.

Five more to go.


The end of this week's Desparate Housewives showed Lynette, who was just told that she was cancer-free, and the voice over saying "What doesn't kill us, makes us stronger."

That was my friend Lanette and I's mantra when training for our first marathon.

She's counting my chemo down by marathon miles. She's the math professor. So I'll let her do the exact calculations. But I think I'm somewhere between mile 9 and 10.

Wish I was burning those calories as well!

I didn't realize you had to go through so many rounds. I'll bet those friends of yours throw you the best post-chemo party ever.

I PROMISE it will be over and you'll feel so proud of yourself for having done it. You are doing a great job of taking care of yourself Girl! Don't forget that. Write me again if you need questions answered or any more help with anything. I may be all the way in Jersey but am totally keeping tabs on you. I was two years out on Nov 3. This WILL be you too and you'll back and wonder how you ever did it and KNOW how strong you were. Hang in Missy!
