Tuesday Marchh 8th 2011

Wow March is already here...the year will be a quarter of the way through by next month. I get emotional when I hear that someone or someone's family member is diagnosed with cancer. Like I said I would not wish cancer on my worst enemy. For so many reasons I get emotional...just learning to deal and accept it is not easy. I sympathize with any new cancer patient because it can be such a painful journey to good health and sometimes there can be so many uncertainties.

Recently a friend that I met through my sister was diagnosed with some form of cancer and he also had surgery. When I would go for treatment he used to check me in with a smile. He is just such a sweet person. So sad to hear when he was admitted. A few weeks back I met him at the Cancer Center at Stanford and he was just coming back from some tests. I did not even recognize him, he had lost so much weight and gone was the happy go lucky smile. Of course I got teary...I know I am getting to be a big mess..lol! He told me how he was going through series of tests and he was just getting tired. I am hoping and praying for a speedy recovery for him.

It has been almost 2 months since my surgery and my recovery has been really slow. I guess the older I get the longer it takes to recover :) I am thankful that the swelling on my feet has finally gone down...now I am waiting for the ankles to go down too. The swelling on my legs have gone down a great deal:) Supposed to be seeing the Dr on Thursday so that can map out my treatment. I am so ready for a vacation..lol! I want to just close my eyes and wish myself to a beach in Fiji....oh I miss home so much. My Dad is leaving this week and I think I will beg him to take me with him...lol....I think I will have a speedy recovery in Fiji ;) but that will have to wait till August. I am glad that through all this God is still in control. 



  1. it's great to read that through it all..you see things from a positive light. all the best and will be thinking of you in my prayers
