Biography

My journey started in Aug 2010 and was a terrible ordeal with complications of surgery (Almost didn't make it due to a crazy infection and abscess)in and out of the hospital for about six weeks and then about a year on Mitotane. I have been cancer free since the surgery and now get CT and blood checks every six months instead of three. It is hard living life in three month pieces. Anyway, I try to stay "normal" every day, but it is a new normal. Now that I've been free of cancer and there is amazingly no reoccurrance of tumor I am happier but different. There are some people that did not want to stay with me through this time. I need to continually adapt to the new kinder gentler me, LOL...less swagger, but more smiles? I even took up ballroom dance, what a hoot! Here's to living life well and moving on...one day at a time all and to hell with the really tough days, we all have 'em. YOLO: You only live once!
