Almost better

I felt so well today that I actually got out of bed at a reasonable 10 AM, showered, ate and dressed, and sat on the deck reading. I didn't take a nap, although I thought about it. I even went on a walk around the corner with Rik and the dogs. That 's the biggest sign of improvement from pneumonia.

On the cancer front, I am losing two fingernails for the first time in almost 16 years of cancer. There are healthy nails growing underneath, so I am not too worried. I get my strong nails from my mother. (Dad gave me the thin hair and the long legs.)

No more news for now.


  1. Woohoo! I need to work on this napping idea. I haven't been taking naps lately, maybe I need to again. Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better-ish. Sitting on the deck reading sounds lovely.

  2. Hello,

    Thank you for creating such a beautiful platform to speak to women about the new normal, as you say, living with cancer. It is raw and real and inspiring.

    My name is Dr. Rimma Finkel. I'm double board certified in Plastic Surgery, specializing primarily in breast reconstruction surgeries. I've found that many breast cancer patients have been searching for more information about the reconstruction process. I would like to offer helpful information and resources to these survivors.

    Would you have just a minute to review an infographic we've created. We'd love some feedback on where we could have been more helpful and informative. Thank you so much for your help!
