No Art But GOOD News! !!! WOO HOO !!!!

I usually do mostly art related posts on my blog with a sprinkling of my personal life tossed in occasionally but sometimes stuff is just too good not to share with all of the wonderful creative friends I have met thru my blog. And I have had such good news twice this week. Quick back story first....In 2007 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had to have my thyroid removed then radiation treatment. Cancer seemed to be stalking me as I had an ovarian cancer scare last summer and a surgery that really took the wind out of my sails for many months. Then about 10 days ago I had a colon biopsy. I had been dreading this and have been more stressed than I would like to admit about this biopsy as my father had a tough time with this particular cancer. So.... on to the great stuff. I saw the thyroid doc Wednesday and got my 3 year all clear from her!!!! WOO HOO! Then I got the results in the mail Saturday evening from the biopsy saying there was no cancer! Double WOO HOO!

On a much smaller note (pun intended) I have been trying my hardest to lose weight since May 1rst and got 33 lbs off....while waiting for the biopsy results I gained back 8 lbs. I stress eat! Steve did made me my favorite raspberry cake to make me feel better while waiting for the last biopsy so I think I'll blame the 8 lbs on him :) However I don't think I will have any problems getting back on plan and continuing my healthier lifestyle. I hope you all are having a happy and having some fun this weekend. Life is too short to waste a minute! :) Nan
