I am not....

on May 16, 2008 - 5:23pm

I edited my original entry after further thought...

In case anyone is interested, my surgery is scheduled for Thursday and I'm scared.

For the person who asked how I made Josh laugh. I wore my Groucho Marx get up.

Feeling a little scared

on May 1, 2008 - 4:48pm

I have my MRI and consult scheduled for next week. Then, I have to have surgery and radiation treatments. To answer your question (if you asked)...(a) yes, I'm scared, (b) yes, I'm upset and angry and (c) I'll get through this.

I thank God I got to meet Josh last summer. I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd ever meet him, let alone meet him and make him laugh. So, dear God, thank you for that one. I owe you big time.

As for me, I'll get through this one way or another. Okay time for a joke....a rabbi, a minister and a priest walk into a bar, and the bartender says, okay, what's the joke....

It's confirmed

Well, it's confirmed. I have a form of breast cancer. It's treatable, but still scary. Hearing someone tell me I have cancer was not the best news I've ever heard.

However, you know me, I'll makes jokes about it. Heck, anything can be taken away from me,but not my sense of humor.

Nothing to say, just "hi."

Actually, I had a second mammogram this week and I have to go in for a consult. Something tells me we aren't in Kansas in anymore.

Feeling nostalgic

on April 10, 2008 - 3:27pm

I was looking back through the thread for the Manchester, NH concert last year. There was so much excitement right before. I had such a great time that night and I was looking forward to starting a new job.

This year is so different. No M&G's planned, no concerts. I don't when I'll ever get to see Josh perform live again. I have to be grateful for the concerts I saw last year and meeting him.

I gave Josh something very personal. It was a DVD of the concert I did last year. I wanted him to know how much he had inspired me to use what I have, and how far I'd come in such a short time. I don't know if ever watched it, but I'm happy I gave it to him. I really believe it's important to let him know how much he helped me to do something I'd always wanted to do. No matter what happens to me going forward, I know I've been able to bring the same type of happiness to others.

Who knows, maybe Josh will come back to this area someday and with any luck, I can get him to sign the photograph of him and me. Even if it never happens, I've been blessed!
