Holy cow! Yesterday my phone (which is connected to the computer) quit working and so did my usb port on the computer. Lee and I bought a smart phone for each other for Christmas and it wouldn't work, either. I worked for hours to get something to work and nothing would. Finally, in desperation, I rebooted the computer. Wallah! That fixed everything. I don't know why I don't think of that first thing! Maybe I will after this! I'm convinced the phone is smarter than either one of us or even both of us put together. We're going to be doing a lot of traveling and we were tempted to buy a gps for the truck, but I thought we might as well go ahead and join the real world and get a phone that had a gps, plus I can learn to text. I don't know; I may have bitten off more than we can chew! I've come a long way today; maybe I will, indeed, figure it out, but the fatigue is showing in my face, I'm afraid. I thank God for giving both Lee and I some extra time to live. He's lived through prostate cancer and 3 heart attacks and open heart surgery. I'm giving breast cancer a run for it's money. I thank God for the time and each other to share it, so I'll do my best to make the best of it. I'm going to outgrow the flip phone! No promises about how quickly I will be proficient with it!
Happy Christmas Eve Eve. All is good with us. I hope all is good with you.
In 11/06 I was diagnosed with stage 3b breast cancer. One of our daughters started this blog for me; it has been a way to keep everyone informed and give them a way to respond. In 9/11 the love of my life had a heart attack followed by a stroke and passed from this life. Holy cow, I still lived! I stumbled for 9 months and then met a wonderful man who had lost his wife to complications of breast cancer. In 8/12 we married. I learned that God gave us big enough hearts to love completely, again! On 2/26/13 I learned that the breast cancer is back in the bones, the lymph system, and the liver; I now have stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, meaning it cannot be cured but it can be treated. I began treatments on 3/5/13; if they work, I can live year after year, so I'm praying that these treatments will work. I learned on 4/29/13 that they ARE working; I will continue as long as it works. This blog is about my challenges along the way. I pray that my story will be encouraging to those who read it. Attitude is everything and I believe that God provides. I give thanks for that and for your love, support, and prayers.
