Good News!

Hi Friends,

I apologize for not posting for the past couple of weeks but I have been awaiting news from the doctors and did not want to post until I had the results.  Well, the results show that I am 100% cancer free and the doctors say there is no reason for me not to live to be 80 or more!

I am at my brother's house in Bakersfield, CA now waiting for my new passport book to arrive before I return to Aticama.  It has been over 100 degrees here for the past week and the forecast is for 100+ for the next week or so.  It may be hot in  Aticama but living right on the ocean keeps it feeling much cooler.

I miss my dogs and my friends but am enjoying a wonderful visit with my brother Rick and his family.  Rick had his second knee replacement on Tuesday and everything went well and he is recovering rapidly.  Part of the reason I am here is to help him with his recuperation but he is doing so well, there is not much I can do but enjoy his company!


  1. Well, that's good news. Congratulations. That cancer can be a b*tch, nice to see you dodged that bullet. Keep on truckin'.

  2. Very good news. I am happy for you. I would hate the heat that you are enduring.

  3. Wonderful news! I know I appreciated the help of my brother during my hip replacement, so I'm sure your brother appreciates your help.

  4. Nice! Now you can get on with your life...good for you!


  5. Wonderful news on both counts. But especially for you. I'm so glad you were able to catch it in time and get it taken care of.

    Here's hoping for a fast recovery for your brother! :)

  6. Fantastic news......why stop at 80!!

  7. Awesome news!!! Very happy to hear those words, "cancer free"!!! Amazing grace!

  8. Hi! I just got reading through a few of your posts and I had a quick question. I am involved in the cancer community and was hoping you could email me back when you get the chance. Thanks! - emilywalsh688(at)gmail.com.
