I think this summer so far has been the best ever! I'm not sure if it's just that I appreciate things more or if I'm really having more fun. Either way I'm loving it! Bon Jovi was awesome! What a great night! I forgot about the cancer and just had fun. It's amazingly difficult to do this most of the time but I'm finding that the more fun I'm having the easier it is to forget for the moment anyway. It helped having my best friend with me - just like old times!!!

We had Jeff's family out for the weekend last week and that was lots of fun. Jeff has two little nephews who are absolutely adorable so it was fun watching them in the pool having a blast! We swam most of the weekend since it was so beautiful out and had family and friends over for supper. It was so great getting to see everyone and catching up with what's going on.

I had a friend of mine out with her kids for lunch and a swim and we had a great time. We hadn't seen each other for many years so it was really nice. Love having those friends that we can get together and it seems no different then years before. You can pick up where you left off. We won't wait so long next time!!

We went to Kenora for the weekend this past week and what a great time we had!! When I was younger we used to go out to Kenora to my Aunt and Uncle's cabin. I havn't been back there for many, many years so I jumped at the opportunity when it came up!! I have so many really great memories in Kenora with my sisters and my cousins. We had a fun filled weekend and the kids didn't want to come back home. We went fishing, hiking, tubing, had our own fireworks show, watched my cousin launch his rockets and had fun seeing the kids chase them everywhere.... I could go on and on! It was a really awesome weekend and everyone had lots and lots of fun!!!! We are already talking about going out again this summer!! Thanks to the Lindsays for making it such a special weekend.

I am feeling great these days!! Making sure I'm getting lots of rest in between all the fun! I'm more used to the fatigue from the Interferon and am coping better with it. It's just there's so much that I want to do this summer!!! I got a phone call from the Gamma knife nurse yesterday letting me know that my brain scan came back and it looks good. No changes which is really great news!!! I had actually already gotten my scan back from my oncologist last week but getting the all clear from the Neurosurgeon is awesome!! One of my friends sent me a woman's story from You Tube which was very encouraging. This woman also had brain and lung metastasis (just like me) and took some similar treatments as me and five years later she is doing great! Hearing these stories brings me hope and strength to do whatever it is that I need to do to get healthy!!
