Life is good.
It is a good feeling to wake and be alive. My roads of my journey are littered with little bumps, large mountains, small pot holes and huge craters. It makes the journey interesting, especially when I finally get over the huge crater and large mountains that I see I made through the problems and conquered it.

Feeling good finally. Over came the cancer now have to learn to live with heart. Have to learn to not be impatient..slow down when tired, but not totally give in to it. That is hard to do, but the body will make you slow even if you don't want to. :)

Not as tired..yeah. I think finally on mend. Making a better effort to read labels for sugar and sodium contents. Had a wonderful day with my son on Mothers day. Missed my older son who is in New York.

April 28, 2010 Doctor Check Up

Had check up from heart doctor. We are just going to go along and see what happens for now. 5 year cancer survior and end up with crazy heart.
April 25, 2010 Hospital

Started weekend off on wrong foot. Had dizziness, nausea and vomitting. Ended up with atrial fibrallion and had to stay in the hospital overnight. Got to come home at 12 noon on Sat. Mostly been resting and taking it easy. Have to see cardiologist this week to see what is next.

April 23, 2010 Forgetting to Write Food.

I keep forgetting to write down my food . lol Have to do better. I think I'll remeasure everything for a short while. With the allergies it has been hard. A little every day or as they say baby steps..
April 16, 2010 Need Back on Track.

I haven't been here for a while. Monday marks 5 years of going into a long dark tunnel. My first surgery of which I thought I had ovarian cancer stage 4. Thanks to God it wasn't, but I have PMP, Cancer of the Appendix. I am 57 years old now it has been an interesting journey with it's ups and downs, thank God I made it through.
Zaky decided to come back to Greensboro this Jan an transfer to a community college. Closer to home and less money.
My weight has remained the same or close to when I went off. Now I am back..need to write down food for a while to continue on my journey.

July 2009

I am finally feeling better mentally, physically, and spirituality.. Now I am commit to work on my weight and lose those unwanted pounds. I am married to Mike and we have 2 sons. Sam is 24 and is graduated from Northeastern University in Boston Ma now living in NY City. My youngest Zaky is 18 and graduated from high school. He will be attending UTI in Mooresville, NC in August 2009.

I did not think 4 years ago I would live to see that, I am so thankful to God for letting me see them do this. It is great to be alive to see all that is in store for me and my family.

I may have cancer, but cancer doesn't have me!

Live! Laugh! Love! often & Celebrate Life Every chance you get! and remember Don't give Up the Fight!

One step at a time. 5 pounds in a month would be fine.Slow down do not be in a rush as when I was younger. I learned that it takes time for the weight to come off slowly to stay off.

    Your friendship has helped me grow.
    Your encouragement has helped me
    gain confidence in myself.

    Knowing someone as caring as you has
    made me more sensitive to the needs of others.

    Your understanding has helped me to become
    more open about my feelings, and listening
    to your observations has made me
    think a lot about what really matters.

    Your friendship has made me see life
    as something to be enjoyed. . .
    especially with someone like you.

    It takes more than caring
    To be a real friend;
    The nature of friendship;
    Requires a blend
    Of warmest compassion
    And love deep and true
    To reach and to comfort
    The way that you do.
    Because I can see
    That your kind of friendship
    Is priceless to me.
    ~~Unknown Author~~
    I am so Blessed to have you as my friend.
    May God Bless You For...
    The Impact You've Made In My Life!
    Many many Hugs, Teresa
