I was still going through the pictures of the second day of our road trip when it was time to leave again -- and this time for a longer period of time. I did get time to work on the pictures and the post for that second day, which was right when blogger went and changed their software on me.
Fighting brain mets is hard enough; on top of recent deaths that have saddened me, that was just one step too far. So instead of focusing on hiking or this blog, I have focused on getting healthy doing everything I can to supplement and complement the treatment we've been doing. And it must've worked -- the latest imaging results show I have but one LM spot left to whack-a-mole out of my head, the relatively stable spot in the Internal Auditory Canal on the cerebral nerves!
So, two and 2/3 years after being diagnosed with LM/mets to the brain and spine, I AM STILL HERE and I STILL HAVE QUALITY OF LIFE. Yes, my days are hard, spent trying to do anything I can to catch up on the backlogged workload while dealing with ridiculous side effects and "collateral damage." But overall, these are the days I have been fighting for: family birthdays, graduations, golden anniversaries, and spending as much time as possible with my loved ones.
I will try to blog when I can, but honestly the new blogger is driving me crazy! So always remember: no news is probably good news!
