My motivation for writing in this blog have wavered in the last few months. I have been dealing with medication side effects, pain and the "fog" that effects many breast cancer patients.

My computer got dropped and accidentally kicked across the room just before Christmas. Tim bought me a new one I am endeavouring to learn. The new computer was faulty and made a trip to the"clinic"for repair. Twice.

So , long story short, I am back.

Tomorrow I start radiation on my spine. I am more afraid of this than any single treatment I have been given. I hope it knocks back the cancer and the pain for awhile. It will make things worse before they get better. I am braced for this but am really frightened.

The tatters of me are still here.

I am in Vancouver and all my art toys are on Mayne.  I am going out to get a few today.

Tomorrow at the crack of dawn they fry me once again.

Back Online Soon

Excuse the hiatus.

I am doing much better. Well enough to do a little radiation,
Trying to stay upright.

Will post lots of pictures.
