Happy New Year!

December went by so fast, but it was a lot of fun. Christmas Eve was at my house this year, Tara did all of the cooking and Danny&Amy did most of the singing.

After Christmas, I went to Cannon Beach for our annual New Year’s Celebration. My parents came for a few days, Miranda and Tammy surprised us on the beach, and the regulars were there so it was about 10 total. Lots of fun with the kids and Elsie was especially cute now that she’s talking up a storm. I’m really glad I was able to go and celebrate another New Year’s Eve with good friends.

Next week I have a PET/CT scan, I think it will be number 24. If I actually counted up the PETs, CTs, MRIs, MUGAs, bone scans, bone density scans, x-rays, etc., I’m sure that it’s well over 100 now. I’m so tired of it! I shouldn’t complain, I am lucky that I’m still here to be getting these scans. But it’s been 4 years now of drugs and procedures and cancer cancer cancer cancer and I’m sick of it. I’m stuck in this endless loop of medical appointments that is never going to end. It’s exhausting to even think about sometimes.

The best distraction from all this stuff is the pups. They are the sweetest and cutest– I can’t tell you how much I love them and how grateful I am to have them in my life. How can you not feel the joy when you look at this pic?

  1. It’s a bunch of crap and I am sorry that you have to deal with all of it. But I am so happy that
    you are still here. I love Finn and Piper, I have a whole album of them on my iPad. They would
    cheer up anyone. Love you madly, Sue

  2. Karen: Finn and Piper are so off the charts cute! I am glad your dogs give you joy to counteract the rotten impact/your daily life with cancer. Thank you for your blog – you are a fabulous writer and your posts touch me so much.
