Roses relax me, and they're in full bloom right now. These rose bushes are attached to my potting shed, which I spend as much time in lately as possible.more

Today I'm spending some time going through all the beautiful letters I received from all of you.
The special notes and the special cards were so appreciated.

Today I'm going to try something completely unusual: it's called a hyperbaric chamber. It's specifically for burns and the healing of infection - it's a massive oxygen tank you sit in and breathe pure oxygen. At this point I'm going to try anything and everything - I absolutely do not want to go back into a massive surgical procedure.more

Yay - I'm outdoors again today!
First thing I do in the morning is I feed the birds. Phoenix and Halo, of course, and then the birds that live in Lily Pond.
It makes me feel better. It makes me feel like I still have the same routine as I did before I got sick.
Somehow I think the birds and the animals that live here know something is different, it's like they sense something isn't the same.more

When I woke up this morning, I thought about what I want to do today. When I have a big day out and about I'm down for at least two days afterwards, so staying at home snuggled up in my living room is what I'll be doing today.
I walked around my house and thought about what I haven't enjoyed lately that I used to love so much. What hobbies have gone by the wayside because my days have been filled with so much to do and no extra time for the little wonderful things.more

Today I am getting up and out.
It's definitely time for some new scenery. I am sick of being sick!
I'm off with one of my friends to a new gardening center to get some new plants for my garden.

Sunshine, my garden and a really good iced tea make me so, so happy.
I really haven't wanted to leave my house over the last three weeks at all; maybe a few little car trips here and there, but nothing major for sure.

I have lost 20 pounds total – but that has stabilized, and I’m putting on about a pound every two days.
I have to say, I'm almost 50 and I don’t think I look that dang bad! But lately I feel like I’m 100 – which is a heck of a lot more important.more

I'm headed back to the doctor’s office to check on my progress.
I keep trying to focus on yesterday’s message regarding National Cancer Survivor Day, and I AM so grateful to be fighting this disease, but I just want to be told that everything is great, and to get back to my life.more

Feeling a little bit better this week, and surely this post salmon with yogurt dill sauce and half an avocado will make me feel even better!
Lots of good protein and good fats here - and a nice cold iced tea, because that makes me happy!

Okay Facebook family, here's one of the biggest issues with going through this: not only am I severely uncomfortable and have excruciating pain if I don't take pain meds (I am off the pain meds and get an unbelievable headache) but in addition to that, I have massive hot flashes.
What organic methods do you have for dealing with hot flashes? (Obviously I cannot take hormones!)
This one I really need your help with!
