Hi all!  I don't post much anymore, but will try to more often.  My Anatomy class is finally over.  The last test was Thursday.  What a relief!  This was HARD!  I realized that it was harder at the beginning mainly because I was recovering from the TRAM surgery, because once I felt like my old self again, it seemed easier. 
 
Anyway, I participated in a Relay for Life this morning by taking the Survivor's Lap.  It was a very small group, so it was rather disappointing.  My friends had a team and invited me to do the lap.  I think next time, I'll pick a different location.  I couldn't stay (they were late starting), because I had to hurry home to get ready for an outing to see "Menopause, the Musical".  OMG, if you haven't seen it yet, you must!  It was a scream!  DH even liked it, even if he was 1 of only a handful of men there. 
 
I had a check up at the onc last Friday and it was all good news.  The CA15-3 is down to 27!  YEAH!  It was hovering around 30 before.  I lost more weight and my blood pressure was reasonably good.  I feel absolutely great!  The reconstruction has really changed how I feel about myself and that is surprising.  I didn't think I felt that bad before, but I am loving the flat tummy!  I actually LIKE to shop for clothes now.  I got into a size 14 jeans!  I haven't seen that size in YEARS! 
 
Well, that's enough babbling.  I just wanted to let you ladies know I was thinking about all of you this morning and those that are no longer with us.  Thank you so much!
L & H,
Kathy

Thanks for the update, Kathy. Glad that you continue to do well. That is always good to hear. I have participated in Relays for Life and always found it a moving experience. The survivors' lap was done as part of the opening ceremonies and again when the luminaries were lit. One year we did the lap to Debbie Boone's You Light Up My Life. I cried the entire way around the track. I knew many of the people I walked with -- some really good friends. Like I said, it was emotional. Stay well. Hugs, Lauri

Kathy: Glad that you are feeling better and that your tests are coming back w/ better numbers! Congrats on finishing your class.
 
Relay For Life is always on a Fri night in my town. I think this year, for the first time in 5 yrs, I actually felt like a true survivor. The Survivor Lap is very emotional, not only for those walking but for all of those standing and watching.
 
Hugs...Deb

Kathy, Congrats! I am so impressed. Going through all you have and still doing so very well. Geez. Sisters in pink are really a special thing. I remember all of us doing the survivor lap in LV. As we were walking I saw a daughter helping her mom do the walk and the pride and love in their faces as they took the walk together is something I will never forget. Those survivor laps really teach us all a little bit more about ourselves, and others who wear the pink with pride. Congratulations and best wishes, Joyce
