It’s About Time…

November 2, 2009 at 2:13 AM (Welcome)

Some would say that a blog about a cancer journey should start at the beginning. Some might wonder why a blogger would wait to start chronicling the litany of craziness until she’s three and a half years into things. They wouldn’t know me very well, would they? Procrastination is my middle name (well, one of them), and if there’s any excuse that’s valid for putting stuff off, it’s fighting evil cells inside your abdomen. I’m milking it.

So welcome to it. A place for me to vent, share, and offer a little help to others who might be heading down this road. There aren’t many of us like me on this trip, under 40 and healthy (present tumors excepted, of course), trying to raise little kids and keep our families marching forward as functionally as possible while navigating the side effects and treatment schedules and hoping to look cute while wearing someone else’s hair.

If you’re fighting your own battle, let me know how you’re doing. I’d love to hear from you, compare notes, share embarrassing bald stories.

And if you’re reading this otherwise, hi Mom!

    Just a note from Mom, not your Mom, your other Mom. Good idea. I will be following your blog.

    Note from your sister. Not your sister, but your other sister. 🙂
    I’ll be following too!

    Much love!

    It’s your real mom, this time. I’ll be following you.
    …and yeah, it’s about time.

    your rellies are pretty funny ;o) hello mom’s, sisters, and you. Thanks for your comment on my blog – always nice to meet another bloggy type.

    I know quite a few women under 40 who have had OC. One of them just had a baby! After horrendous treatment etc. See my blog, right hand side – Diary of a Cancer Patient, What, Me Worry? etc.

    Right – on to the next post!
