General Update

I realize I got back in the swing of reviewing and I never really updated you on the things going on in my life.

I’ve now had two check ins with my oncologist – one three months ago and one on Thursday.  Both times, I had scans first.  And both scans came back clean.  My blood work looks great as well.  Naturally, this is a huge relief.  It really is looking like they got all of the cancer with my surgery.  I haven’t had to have any radiation or chemo still, which is huge.

I can’t remember at this point if I talked about my job situation at all.  My company was bought out while I was out on medical leave, and everyone at the corporate office where I worked was let go, most of us the end of April.  While I have not yet found a new permanent job, I am working again as a temp.  It’s still in town, which is wonderful, and it is paying the bills.  I’m hoping I find something permanent soon, of course, but I worked a temp job for a year and a half at one point, so I can do it if I have to.

Other than that, I’m obviously keeping busy reading and watching and collecting.  I was able to participate in the mud runs I’d signed up for in June, and I had a blast doing both of them.  I did another one last weekend, and I’ve got one more scheduled for the end of August, and that looks like it for the year just because of scheduling.  I’m back to playing ultimate Frisbee as well.  Life is moving forward.

Praise the Lord!


  1. Thank God and count your blessings. Glad you are cancer free now. (((HUGS)))

  2. Life is definitely what happens when we are making other plans. I'm glad you're healthy and feeling well, and will send positive energy your way about jobs. August seems like a good time of year to be looking. Best of luck.

  3. Good to hear that you are "up and running"...Congratulations.

  4. So glad you're doing well health-wise, and I wish you the best of luck finding a permanent job you love.

  5. Wow! Things have certainly been busy. So glad to hear about the test results! Sorry to hear about the job but am glad you've had luck temping. Fingers crossed for a permanent job coming up soon!
