Officer Shelby, Tulsa is Calling You.

Today, I am alive and very well.
Cancer, step aside, you ain't getting from me.  Lets look at our day!!

I'm still an Oklahoman.
There are two new additions to my family. Bubbles, Boy Kitty Kitty and Sophia, Mama Mia Kitty Kitty.
My cancer is stable.
I've watched documentaries all day.
I've run out of soy milk for my coffee.
Today's weather: raining off and on all day.
I stopped a documentary and managed to run to the corner store to pick up chips and salsa without being rained on.  Of course I forget the soy milk, but I doubt they have it anyway.

In the News
It's been three days since Tulsa's Officer Betty Shelby was acquitted of manslaughter of Terence Crutcher.

Update - Cancer, you don't fool me!!

Well, since my last post about my cancer, I've had a mastectomy.  My left breast was removed on March 16th, 2017.  There was no evidence of disease in that breast tissue, yay.
And still, the only symptoms I have, other than the actual cancer, is fatigue.  I'm good, very good.  I knew beating stage four breast cancer would be hard, but I'm come a long way in less than a year.
I can't ask for anything right now.  I know that whatever happens, and where I go from here, I'll be ok with it, very ok.
Love always and forever.

Today, I kicked cancer's ass AGAIN!!! Part 1 in my series "Does This Come In Pink??? OMG, I Got Cancer. It's Time To Kick Ass!!"

On June 13th, 2016, I was diagnosed with stage 4 HER+2 breast cancer.  I wasn't scared hearing this, but I wasn't diluted either.  This may have been my first diagnosis, and cancer of any kind does not run in my family, but I was ok with what I was about to face.  Either I'm going to become stable (stage 4, there is no cure, just treatment) or I was going to spend eternity with the Almighty.  That's not a bad deal, really.  However, I didn't want to face this disease alone.  In the following months, I found out I have good friends at work (once, they all showed up in pink, to show their support), I have a good support group at the cancer center I receive treatment at, and I have a good medical team.  In the coming months, years, I will tell you all about them, my life, and everything else that is important to me!!
Thank you for listening, I Am Grateful!!

New and exciting!!

In my journey for a unique and fun blog, I try to find, well, unique and fun things to post.
Here's something, and it's about me, me, me!!!

It's apart of my Red Dirt series.  As the name obviously applies, it's about travel.  Not so obvious is that it's about travel all over the world, not just in Red Dirt Country (Oklahoma).

I want to make this exciting!!  I'll do my best.

Carry on.  Love, always and forever, Aeni.
