Gotta keep on keepin' on.......

Cancer again...that's 3 times in 2 years. This time it’s not breast cancer, but a new one called squamous cell carcinoma. New cancer, same old fighting spirit! My blog is still named for one of many songs that kept me going the first time around. Driving home from an upsetting appointment, I turned on the radio just as this line from Steve Miller Band's Jet Airliner was playing: "I've got to keep on keepin' on" I did just that. And I'll do it again.

Does cancer get an anniversary?

September 5th is coming up fast. That is the day, 1 year ago, that John and I sat in my surgeon's office (along with then 2-year-old Frances and 5-month-old Jesse), heard the biopsy results and learned that yes, indeed, I do have breast cancer.

So do I celebrate anything when September 5th comes up this year? Maybe do a "ha-ha-I'm-not-dead-yet" dance or something like that? Or should I celebrate on April 13th, my last day of radiation and officially the end of my treatment?

Not sure what the protocol is for this cancer stuff.....
