Flying high! Tomorrow I will be off to Cancun. Unbelievable!!! If you would have told me one month ago that I would be taking an impromptu trip to Mexico with my friends in one months time I would have bet money against you. I was in so much pain and so sick from chemo I would have thought you were either insane or dipping into my meds.

It is incredible to think that person was even me. I am feeling so good. Better than long before I was diagnosed with the dreaded "C" word!! I am sure a lot of that has to do with the fact that everyday I get stronger and healthier but even more is due to my new found appreciation for life and everything it has to offer. Not to mention that I just got the results to my first 3 month CT scan..... ALL CLEAR!!!!!

For those still battling the beast... keep the faith!! For those survivors...everyone, please... join me in a toast. Tomorrow at this time I will be on the beach, sitting with my feet in the water, palm trees a swaying in the breeze raising my margarita high in the sky saluting life!!!!

Congratulations!! I am so thrilled you are doing so well. You have a great time on that well deserved vacation. I too was scheduled to head to Mexico (Manzanillo) in December, but failed my CT test and had a recurrance. I am battling that now with all good results (caught it early) and plan to take my Mexican vacation in May!

Have a Margarita for me and have a wonderful time. You deserve it.
