Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass- it is about learning to dance in the rain.

My beautiful granddaughters -- don't you wish your kitchen counter had such a decoration???

Here are Teresa and I at a wedding reception. My hair is even longer now and this was only 10 days ago! I've been wearing it "Au Natural". It looks a bit like Sigourney Weaver's when it grew out from "Alien 3". I think I look healthier now, less puffiness in the face.

More updates

At least my update is good news. All stitches are removed from the last reconstruction and the surgeon doesn't want to see me for a month. That's good news. I see the oncologist next week so those visits aren't over. BUT....hormone therapy is a far cry from chemotherapy. I'm experiencing no negative side effects from it. He says this protocol will cut by 50% the chances of re-occurrence. That puts me in a good range, statistically speaking.

Physically, I'm feeling much better. I have more strength and energy than before. Even a couple of busy stressful days consecutively, don't actually put me in bed anymore. I need to keep the pace slow for the most part -- but then slow just isn't me. So I run full speed ahead until I can't anymore, then I rest. Works for me!!

I do need to slow down a bit and work on that book some more though. I really want to get it finished before I return to work. It will take some doing.

Not so much else to report. The girls are great and are enjoying Teresa. More about that later. I had to add some girl pictures.
