You’ve Got to Be Kidding Me

You all know that it has been a tough year for me and Ed (and family).  Breast cancer diagnosis, chemotherapy, surgery and now radiation – all within the past 8 months.  Lately I  feel like I want to stand on a mountain top and scream.  Just let it all out!  Absolutely nothing is going our way.  It’s literally one thing after the other I can’t even begin to list them all.  What is going on?  We are truly being tested.  I thought it happened in 3’s…so they say…but we are well beyond that for the year.  To add to the drama of 2011, on Friday evening Ed and I we were in a car accident.  The good news is:  everyone walked away and is fine; Gracie was not with us (that would have made the situation 10 times worse); and it was not our fault.  But our car was beat up pretty bad and we were shaken.  We were able to drive away from the scene, but our car is not really driveable because the driver’s side door does not close securely.  So just another thing for us to deal with!  And perfect timing – December – the holidays, radiation everyday (except for the 26th)….UUUGGGHHH.  Come on, can we please, please, please catch a break?  I have never looked forward to New Year’s like I am this year!  Ed and I can’t wait to say good-bye to 2011 and hello to 2012!  It can only get better from here, right?

On a positive note, we had a nice Thanksgiving.  Hope you did too!

Radiation #6 is tomorrow.  It’s my first full week i.e. 5 days in a row.  Will let you know how it goes.  Wish me luck!


  1. Oh my gosh, I had no idea. So glad to hear you both are ok, can we do anything to help?

    Miss you and am so sorry you are having to go through all of this, it can’t go anywhere but up from here.


  2. OMG. I am just glad that everyone is alright. If you need anything don’t hesitate to ask. We have two cars and usually there is just one of us here, You are more than welcome to take one of our cars.

    2012 will be your year!!!! It is the launch pad to great things!!!
