Update for 2016

Hi everyone!  It's been forever since I've been on - I uploaded some pics of my boys, grandson and my boyfriend.  I've been busy, busy - working two jobs and trying to be a good mama and Oma.   I went to my breast surgeon this week for my annual check up and got the all clear!   That appointment always stresses me out - to the point I am almost physically ill.   But I am good!  The girls got a clean report!   It was five years back in November, 2015.  Hoping for many, many more!

Some good news...my son, who was/is an addict, has hit six months sober.  He is 22...young enough to change his life.  He has a lot of work left to do on himself, but he is trying.  

My youngest is a junior in high school, and studying hard.  He works part time too.   

Jaxxy, and his mama, are moving out of state, which breaks my heart.  I love this boy more than anything.   He truly brings so much joy to everyone around him.   

Life is good...Hugs to all that need them.   It's funny...I come back here to reassure the newbies that there is life down the road.  It will never ever be the same, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.  Does that make sense?  It helped me so much to read people's entries about "regular" life years down the road.  

Hugs and love to all!

It makes infinite sense! Life is never the same after cancer, but that doesn't mean it can't still be rich -- and well worth living. You, Diane, are State's Exhibit A of a survivor who's made it through the tunnel and now basks in in the bright daylight of life. Way to go, Girl! Big hug of congrats, B

Your photos are nice and you look healthy. Blessings to your son also. My Joe drank his last alcohol beverage on August 20th, 1989. God bless and stay well.

What a fantastic uplifting post Diane! Congrats onthe all clear for you and the 6 month sober for your son,tell that even though times can get rough there is also a light at the end of the tunnel and it is shining on him. I understand how hard getting and staying sober is as my younger sister was 2 years clean shortly before Christmas and it is so importand for the support to continue. Sorry that your little grandson is moving away, hopefully it will not be too far. Sunshine and Smiles to you and yours and lots of hugs your post made my day!

Diane, I am so happy to hear you got the all clear--that is so awesome! You look absolutely great and very happy. What a beautiful family you have and I'm glad to hear they are all doing well too. I know you will miss seeing your Jaxxy, but I hope you will get to see him as often as possible. Just think how sweet those visits will be! Take care, my sweet friend, and please know that I wish you continued good health and tons of happiness! Love and hugs!

Thanks! I *am* happy...it's been a rocky road, but hey, I'm here! : )

Yes. 2019

2019 - new mass in left breast. 2010- None - I found a lump, which turned out to by a cyst. That cyst was hiding one of the cancer tumors. The other tumor was closer to my chest wall.
