This is a very big week!

Tomorrow I go for my first CT Scan in about 2 months since I had 25 weekdays in a row of chemo & radiation.  I had to wait this long to have my insides “settle” to assure the Scan would not be a false reading. It has not been an easy wait.

It will take several days to get the results, so I will let you all know when I know something.  This could be good news or bad news…… I am prepared for either at the best peace my mind can muster.  My will to live is still so strong and I will not let this cancer destroy any of my spirit.

I can still use all your prayers as I so much want to gain weight and strength.  But I am surprisingly at peace.

I looked for my most peaceful image today and found a panoramic of my first visit years ago to Machu Picchu, Peru.  Perched in a valley of fabulous peaks, I brought my heavy 6 X 17 panoramic camera up the mountain and I love what it captured.  A perfect peaceful vista.

I send hugs and warmth to all of you as I enter this pivotal week in my battle with this horrible cancer.  I need your prayers, but I also can say that I hope I have been some small type of inspiration to all those fighting any fears, problems or setbacks.  My entire life I have attempted to inspire others….. hope I can still do that.

Cheers to all of you.
