9 years and counting

Today officially marks 9 years since I was diagnosed stage IV. I am going to buy a big steak for us to cook on the grill to celebrate making it 9 years but first a long mountain bike ride followed by a long motorcycle ride.

    I'll be at 6 years next month. If I could have anything to eat, it would be my Mom's  crispy homemade tamales with fresh salsa on top And a cup of coffee. Yum!

    nine years - fantastic. And, what's good about your situation is that you seem to have excellent quality of life.  clearly if you are mountain biking, etc.,the beast has not defeated you, your immune system, or your spirit.

    Here's to nine more!
