Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Give them a big hand

The challenge this week at 
Forever Night's Freaky Fri is Wicked Treats.

I eat lots of popcorn.   I'd better be checking mine for spiders.

I want to give my husband a big hand today.   We just returned from
Charleston, SC, after having his 6 month check up after treatment for
a lung tumor.   All is fine.   The tumor shows no 
activity after his radiation treatment.    He will have 
another CT scan in 6 months. 

My poor husband seems to be a cancer magnet.   About 10 years
ago he had his cancerous bladder removed.    About 6 months ago he
was diagnosed with the lung tumor and a pre-leukemic blood condition.
The lung tumor was very small and could be treated.  The blood
condition will require a lifetime of chemo to keep at bay.
Thank goodness the chemo is a mild dose and he tolerates it well 
and has relatively few side effects.   
You would expect spreading from the original bladder cancer
but that isn't the case.   His cancers are all new and unrelated to
each other.   Who would have ever thought of such a 
possibility.   Not us.

Thanks for stopping by.

Jeanette, your card fits perfectly into the Wicked Treats theme this week at forever night, so glad you could join us. :)
What a lot for you and your husband to go thru with the different cancers, I'm sending healing thoughts your way.
