Am back...sort of

It has been a very long time since I've been online - outside of a few times here and there - between the repetitive scans, chemotherapy, blood work, etc. As someone who is a cancer survivor (still working on surviving the 2nd bout), I can say that it has been a harrowing experience. As woman who is kind of, sort of a woman, it's hard to put into words what I have had to endure. Ask any woman who has had cancer of the female anatomy. It's both strange and difficult (sometimes downright embarrassing) to talk about it. You feel embarrassed to say that you survived cancer, esp. at the age of 31.

I consider myself lucky in that I get to see another sunrise and sunset every day. I consider myself lucky to have my wife there as support for me. And most importantly, I consider myself lucky to be alive, however broken, to experience what being alive means. And for that, I am extremely thankful.'s time to get back to the stories. There will be more coming out - I just wasn't in the right frame of mind back then, but during everything, I've gotten some more ideas of keeping the ever-continuing stories fresh. So...for those who want to read the next story (or two), be patient. My fingers can only go so fast. More to come...

Thanks, luv. It's been a difficult year, and the recent photos are the result of LOTS of time spent at the hospital. Now onto the next step - waiting to see if its gone. If not, more chemo, possibly surgery. Thanks for the well wishes. Blessings be. -Kirsten
