If you have cancer.

If you had cancer.

If you know someone with cancer.

If you want to talk about cancer.

We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  

We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  

To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.

Cancer changes lives.

We have to deal with medical profession.

We have to deal with medications.

We have to deal with new discomfort and pain.

We have to create dignity, where there is indignity.

We have to deal with family members, friends, coworkers, and strangers, in a changed way.

We resolve to go forward with strength, resilience, purpose, pride, and integrity.

We define ourselves. Cancer does not define us.

It is cold and the autumn rains started this morning. In a week or so, I will catch as much sun and putter in my paradise as weather permits.

Thanks for the support dear friends. At my "graduation ceremony, I was able to say I had wonderful internet support from around the world and I must also remember all of you in my festivities. 

Patricia, the chemo dr. told me how long I will be on Herceptin, but I can't remember. I know there will seven months of it every three weeks. That will be a piece of cake. 

Now, the question is, why so many cancers, so many that Cancer Care Northwest has been opening new centers to accommodate all the needs. Does GMO have a role to play in the cause? We just don't know. The doctors all don't know. 

What that tells me is that because we don't know, we can not experiment on the general public. We need to know our food is safe, without question. 

As to seeds, patented seeds pollinate unpatented seeds and the courts are fining neighboring farmers because their crops have been pollinated by patented pollen. That makes about as much sense as finding women guilty when they have been raped.

Now, to happier thoughts, bald is a new hair color.

Daniel I am glad you left that company - there are many unethical people out there.

Joan we are here for you - thanks for keeping us posted on your status. You are in our thoughts.

One more to go; I am as red as the firetruck Laura and her family painted this spring. Dreadfully sore and the doctor said my fatigue will continue for another two weeks. Oh great! just in time for the autumn rains! This week is absolutely beautiful with my garden all burgundy, yellow, and orange, Cary will finish up the preparation for winter's freeze, so I am content. I had my first surgery April 15 and last radiation Oct. 22. I guess that six months is long enough for me to be on vacation.
Isn't it fun to share Daniel's China adventure through his blog! It is a wonder that he has the energy to keep us posted.
Cheers to you all; happy thoughts!

Down to counting the hours now Joan.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 21, 2013 at 11:32am

Daniel, thank you so much for the pep talk. I am really dreading today and tomorrow ... and then radiation will be done. It really does hurt, a lot. Thankful for each new sunrise.

I understand what you are saying Daniel.  Also, of course you don't do things that are wrong or unethical.  That is not you!

Josn, just be strong a little longer. You are so near the final stages of this journey. Its uncomfortable and psinful but you will get through this. Then, gradually, feel better, and there will be the spring flowers to look forward to.
