I Have Survived

One year ago today--July 14, 2009--I finished (oh, wait...I "sucessfully completed") alllllllllllll treatments for breast cancer. WOO!!! HOOO!!!

And in celebration I had a bad hair day. You have no idea how good it feels to have a bad hair day again.

Also, there was this video clip, sent to me by a client:  "Bald Head Blues"

And then there was thai food and a nice dry Gewurztraminer shared with Chris (Okay, Seamus got a little chicken satay without the peanut sauce).

For now, all is right with the world.

Tomorrow, I have to remember to make my mammogram appointment. But's all good. (Here's where you break into your choice of a) I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor, b) Eye of the Tiger by Survivor, or c) theme song to Survivor...depending on how much Gewurztraminer you've had).

Jet Lagging

We are indeed back from a fantastic trip to Geneva, Switzerland and various regions in southern France. Chris and I have, however, both had serious jet lag like we've never had before (so I guess that means I can't chock it up to another chemo side-effect; hmmm...age?), so I haven't had a chance to blog--oh, and we were staying in a gorgeous but wi-fi challenged bed & breakfast, so I had no opportunity to blog while on vacation. I hope you don't mind, but I kinda liked being mostly away from the computer for a couple of weeks.

At any rate, as you can see, the lavender was in were the sunflowers and a few patches of the Provencal red poppies were also still hanging out. More pictures later. But it's nice to think that this time last year I was a cancer patient just finishing up my final two weeks of radiation and still bald...and now, look! C'est la vie, indeed.
