    Counting down the days are you? I would be too if I were headed to this hideaway. Those are some of the places we dream about going to. It is always nice to have something to look forward to. Enjoy yourselves!

    Puerto Rico, here come Mimi and Simon!
    What a great way to celebrate, and what a destination--I especially like the secluded and coast parts! I am so happy for you! You and Simon have a glorious time. Take some photos for us if you have time. We will be looking forward to hearing the highlights.

    Thanks for the support,
    Thanks for the support, guys. I just wanted to share my excitement with you wonderful women. I know life after treatment can be tough, and I don't expect things to be all sunshine and roses from now on, but I am enjoying the small feeling of normalcy that is gradually growing in me. I still worry constantly, but sometimes I think it may be OK (with your support, of course).

    Have a wonderful trip. Enjoy every minute ... it sounds like a beautiful and relaxing place to visit.

    Do you need someone to carry your suitcases? I'm available!

    Roses and Sunshine
    Well, maybe not all roses and sunshine all the time, but I have faith that you will find plenty of both in a long life ahead, Mimi.

    I realize that life after treatment has its own challenges and difficulties. Good to know. But we will all be there for each other. In the meantime, a trip to Puerto Rico sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate how far you've come--and enjoy plenty of sun, sea, and flowers. If you are worrying, I hope it is just about packing for the trip! Or whether you have all the right clothes already, or do you really need to shop first, or...

    Worried
    You're right, Moopy, I will only try to worry about the superficial stuff. Like now I am worried about how I will look in my bikini. Not that anyone will really see or care (well, except Simon of course, but he seems unworried about such things). Didn't I preach in an earlier discussion that we should flaunt what we have left with pride? I am now being put to the test...

    Superficial
    Ah, so you are accusing me of superficiality. Actually, worrying about how you look in a bikini is........normal!

    So there you go. Glad I could help you with that normal stuff.

    I wish!
    Just to read your posts about how you will look in a bikini makes me smile. You young things! If this old granny put on a bikini ... anyone who saw e would be having nightmares for the rest of their lives. LOL

    I think this summer's look will be a big old flowered moomoo ... a giant straw hat ... and a ton of sunscreen! My grandsons will be so proud of their "beautiful" Nana.
