FIGHTING THE FIGHT

Again I have cancer. Stage 3 lung cancer but I am fighting for life…again. This is the fourth time cancer has taken a bite out of me and it’s no fun.

I thought maybe if I write about it, it would give me the strength to beat it once more. So far I have had to be given two units of blood, two units of iron, B12 shots, chemotherapy, radiation and a host of tests. MRI, CT, Blood work, etc, but I have to say my knee is healing and I am able to walk without a cane. Now if the chemo doesn’t destroy my immune system and my knee doesn’t get infected again I just might be around for a while longer.

I so appreciate all of you for hanging in there with me, and I will try to post whenever I can. However, I try to read your offerings as much as possible and will continue to do so. There hasn’t been too much leisure time for emails and postings, and my mood hasn’t been the best my arms and hands look like a well-used pin cushion, and I will probably be radioactive before long, I might even glow in the dark soon.

If you do want a good laugh though and you own a Kindle or other reader you can always go to amazon.com and purchase my book, http://www.the-italian-thing.com. Yes, I still have hope for my book, go figure. ☺☺☺
