Well, despite the apocalypse fans and the Mayan calandar..we made it to the new year! What's amazing to me is that December 23rd was what they call my "cancerversary". The first day and time I heard "cancer" and "me" in the same sentence. What a year 2011 turned out to be ! But that was then and this is now. My docs say it's all behind me now and to make sure, I'll get a full body screening every 3 months. My next one is scheduled for February. The biggest changes for me happened inside "between my ears"..but outside I'm a bit thinner as is my hair--and it's stayed a bit curlier too. I still plan on ending every show with a reminder for us all to think about our health in the new year and stay current with medical tests like mammograms and stress tests. We'll also be addressing thyroid cancer in the new year, since I've learned how high the levels are here in Western New York. Be watching for that. In the meantime..I've loving this mild winter! Happy New Year everyone and keep in touch.
