The good news first, after surgery and pelvic radiation:
I am healthy and cancer free.
I continue almost weekly check-ups to ensure cancer did not spread or escape anywhere beyond the treated area. Cancer cells that spread outside the pelvic area are difficult to detect after surgery, so check ups are a must. Although COBRA and my medical bills felt like they equaled Taiwan's GDP - I can't complain, I have the best doctors and best care.
August has been a great month, I feel healthier, happier and more positive than say...three scary months ago.
I have been completely immersed in my reading, I am on book 5 of the George RR Martin song of ice and fire series. The books are wonderful, the author is amazing, he has me on the edge, reading daily, uttering "BULLSHIT" at audible levels while sitting in a quiet coffee shop or reading at the gym.
I met George RR Martin at Comic Con at the end of July. At the risk of sounding like a sci-fi, fantasy loving geek, nerd (I should prroceed with caution here..the truth may set me FREE), I told George his work has braught me joy during a scary period in my life and proclaimed my admiration and gratitude. He held my hand and thanked me and I still smile when I think about meeting someone who i consider an IDOL...
I am also reading the wild card series by a group of talented authors from New Mexico.
This summer Frank and I have been looking at homes, which so far consists of attending open houses, Frank telling real estate agents their property is over priced and asks to use their bathroom. I especially love it when my huny wears an old tshirt with holes, old shorts and flip flops to view a property somewhere snazzy, its been fun.
No offers have been made yet but I hope we can move into a HOME by the end of 2011.
I just turned 34, Frank and My Mom got me a gorgeous vintage bike. Will post pics later!
One last announcement, I go back to my job MONDAY and I never thought I would be this content to once again become a corporate lil monkey!
Thank you all for
