I know I haven't been here much lately. First off my computer modem went and I didn't have it for a week and I have been spending time at a cottage my sister and friends rented. Also summer time there is so much to do.....................I do come and read some even though I don't post. So congratulations all you colour changers and newbies you are all doing great. I do reply to all my e-mails I receive via my web page.
Anyways, today marks the 5 month anniversary that I was told I had lung cancer and it has also been 5 months since I put a cigarette to my mouth. The time has just flown by, its hard to believe its been that long.
My recovery from surgery has been great. There is one tiny spot left on the incision line and that will be gone shortly. I took my last heart pill yesterday and everything seems fine. Everyone says how good I look and they would never know what I have been through. I put on my jeans last night (my big pair) and boy they are tight.......lol
What I'm really proud of is, that I have not smoked for 5 months and I rarely think about it anymore. I even went to an outdoor concert and drank quite a bit and the next day I thought, "I never even thought about a smoke last night", which proves the fact that it really does get easier!
It won't be long until silver arrives now and I will be there with my pass to board the liner.........
5 Months today!
