I got the results a few days ago (Thursday). It wasn’t good news so I wasn’t in a hurry to post it. I am sure it’s what the doctors expected. The cancer has spread beyond my lungs. That makes it stage IV. It’s still shocking that I got this ill and had no idea. In fact, I’d always felt remarkably healthy. The lack of early screening for this is unbelievable. Like with most cancers, that will probably be the best way to cure it – early detection. My Saturday was far better than Friday. My nieces Lauren and Jackie visited from out of town. And we went out to dinner to celebrate Ken’s birthday – along with our friend, Steve.  The girls left this afternoon. We are relaxing and reading. And enjoying the blustery weather from our cozy home. I am doing very well today.
