Topic: One year ago today I had unsuccessful resection surgery
It's been a year already. I'm still here. Still feeling good except a little pain and fatigue. I've been on chemo for 20 months straight, and haven't lost any hair! I'm looking forward to my 2-year survival mark in August, and my three-year after that, and so on.
I just want to let you all know that it is possible to live a mostly normal life and survive with this monster disease. I'm Stage IV, and you'd never know it. As Lainy likes to say, "Attitude is everything"!
I'm going to retire in 6 weeks, not because I have to, but because I want to be able to spend more time with my family and less time at work in the time I have left. I want to retire while I still feel up to doing things with my family. I'm scared about the financial aspect, as I don't have any savings and I will go for a month without a paycheck until disability kicks in. But I am confident that God will provide a way.
