Things are definitely looking up for me after a year of chemo. This is my granddaughter and the twinkle in my eye! My sister, Laura said she applauds my artitude…I think that is a fabulous word and I am going to use it as much as possible. Thank you Laura. The things that got me through the last year include: drinking massive amounts of water, exercising every day, sleeping more than 8 hours,belly laughing frequently, painting as much as possible and of course friends and family and those who get real joy from my work.
