Gobble gobble

We enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving meal with our good friends G and D and others. Everyone brought delicious food, lively conversation and a spirit of well-being to the table.

What am I thankful for this year?

As always, that I have lived ten-plus mostly very good years with metastatic breast cancer.

That I have the continuous love and support of the best husband on the planet.

That my family and friends try hard to understand how tough living with advanced cancer can be, and that they understand when I need to talk about it and when I need to just be a regular person.

That my medical care team respects me as a person -- Dr G and all my doctors, nurses, and their administrative support staff. To them I'm not a disease or diagnosis; I'm me.

And last but not least, that I have the unconditional love of Bobka the dogka, who always knows when I need a cuddle and snuggle.
