I guess I'm the unofficial winner of the gynecological trifecta; I've now survived breast, ovarian and uterine cancers, *all* found at stage 1. First, my husband named me Chemo Kate, then Menopause Molly, then Radiation Rhonda. I'm Survivor Susie now! (Actually, I'm Ka
[More]thy.) Life is good!
I'm a 4 year bc survivor as well. Love your nicknames! I'm not a fan of all the "don't"s associated with lymphedema. I don't pay much attention to those. If I did, I would be so afraid of doing anything. I lift weights and use the sauna on occasssion. I love a hot tub. I wear a sleeve a lot for mild/moderate lymphedema. I wear them in color, too! I get blood drawn in that arm when I need to... my opinion is live your life mindful of what might happen and try to head it off with lymphatic massage. It shouldn't be something to keep you from life, just be mindful of what could happen.
Just a quick note to say hi! Talking about genealogy, I almost fell off my chair 19 years ago when I found a death record for the 4th g.g.m. in Scotland. She died of breast cancer at the same age as I was when diagnosed - 47, in fact I'd just been diagnosed and felt she didn't have a chance in 1852. I so surprised to see cause of death - breast cancer with apparent mets. Her husband died 2 years later from exhaustion. But you're right about the cause of death not being listed. Saskatchewn will not list the cause of death on death certificate. At least the Irish death certicates list cause of death. I see you're from Colorado - my husband was born and raised in Co.
It was actually my son's dog but she was like a member of the family. I've never had a dog but I sure liked her. I peeked at your profile. I see you're in Colorado. We lived in the Denver area (Golden, Broomfield and Lakewood) for about 4 years before my husband got a job here back in '78. Denver was fine (enjoyed Golden the most and of course, Casa Bonita) but we sure love the NW. Hope you have a good time in Washington. Maybe the Olympic Peninsula? Whether you see any unusual birds is not as important as just seeing something different. We visited Texas and I got to see some real odd ones there. Be safe. irene
Have fun up there on your trip. Really, the best time to see odd varieties of birds is in the Fall during migration or after a big storm when they're blown off track. One year we got a Masked Booby into the center (here in Portland). Talk about off track and special!
