Well, I missed everyone! I just got caught up on the postings and I am infinitely happy that everyone is staying strong (I never would have expected anything less!). The love, support, strength, courage, and kickass attitude embodied in the postings... It amazes me every time. Before cancer, I never understood the depth and resiliency of the human spirit. Thank you all for showing me.
Now, mushiness & corniness aside, I'm glad to be back. Well, I was never really gone. I was caught up in (drumroll please)... Grad school applications! That's right, I will be receiving a B.Sc. on May 31st and I'm planning to go to grad school in the fall. I am just so happy!!! I already told my friends and family to book the day off. Of course, the way I'm talking, I'm probably going to jinx it, but what are the heavens going to do? Give me cancer! Ha, ha, ha, ha. Medically speaking, I'm still doing chemo and my scans are in January. The surgeon thinks he got everything (twenty tumors in the bucket) but we need confirmation. If the scans are clear, I will officially be in remission. Yea!
Must go now, my textbooks beckon, but I think of you all often and pray that all is well. Bob and Sue, you are at the top of my list. I hope you are having a good day. Kerry, I wanted to tell you how shocked and amazed I am at how well you are handling the re-diagnosis. Keep fighting the good fight. I am happy to see the clear scans (Emily!) and that everyone is hanging tight. You know what they say... When you get to the end of your rope, tie a big knot and hang on!
Sending out some Canadian love,
