Checking in and saying "Hello!"

Hi Everyone:

Sending you all hugs!   Its been a few months since I check in.   I'm hanging in there.   I have a scan coming up in November.  However, my work changed our insurance in September so now none of my cancer doctors or centers is covered.   One good thing is that my doctor who left in April of this year and went into a different insurance plan is now what my work has so I will be able to see him again!   I have a video appointment October 2nd.

September 13th marks my 15th anniversary of when this whole crap started.  Since that time I had chemo, radiation, 7 surgeries, a fractured humerus (8th surgery) and multiple scans.  I am working full time so I am happy for that.  I'm tired of COVID and really need to see and hug people.

Talk to you all soon!

All the best,

Kathy

    Hi Armywife:

    Hi Armywife:

    I've seen you on here many times but I don't think we really have spoken much due to my inactivity.   My apologies for that!

    Hello Cindi:

    Hello Cindi:

    Thank you.  I've missed seeing everyone.   You don't realize how much you really need to stay connected until your not.   Thanks for bearing with me!  As you know, I am not very good with words so its hard sometimes for me to say what I want to say.

    Love and Hugs!

    Kathy
