Sunday and it's sunny!


Awoke early as Peter's flight to London left at 8 am. Slept OK, but I feel more and more pressure in my neck and the coughing comes and goes. It was hard for Peter to go back to London and work. Our flight to Gran Canaries left at 6 am without us on it. I watched both that flight and Peter's flight on my Flightracker App. I thought about how it should have been but now how it will be instead this week!

Most of the Stockholm friends have left town for winter break skiing. My other friends are all in different time zones and that is great for having conversations on Facebook with them when they see I am on line. Middle of the night for them, morning for me! Those caring words mean a lot to me.

I was in no hurry to get out of bed today. But then the sun was out and I knew I needed to get moving.
I was thinking about how much I like my hair now and how it is going to disappear very soon. I took some pictures of myself. (surprising as that may seem) They will be the before pictures. Nothing will ever be the same again. Shit, shit, shit.

So now I was pissed! Needed to get rid of the negative energy! Then I remembered that the neighbors across the street had asked me to get rid of the magpie nest in our tree because the magpies are a little crazy on our street it was also time for them to move! I knocked on the neighbors door and asked him if he would like to join me in this endeavour! He was glad (actually overjoyed) to help. Well, we poked and got the branches away. It felt good!
Looks like the lymph glands system, I wish taking away this cancer was as easy as taking the nest away.

At noon, Anna, my neighbor and word-feud opponent came by for a walk. It was good to get out in the fresh air. We saw the signs of spring. Thanks Anna,

The afternoon has been spent just hanging around. It has been a few years since I have done that. The waiting game is not my favorite game to play. I am anxious and nervous but still want to get it over with and get this party started!  I am thinking of getting a cool haircut before all my hair goes............ Maybe I can copy one of my other favorite singers, Pink.

In less than 48 hours I will have completed the two worst tests and found out tons of information that will give me the ammunition to fight this with all I've got. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Theresa, DU är en underbar människa, en "fighter" av högsta mått. Kom ihåg att solen sken för dig idag! Vad härligt att DU även såg ett blommande vårtecken på marken. Njut av allt vackert och fint du möter varje dag, det är DU värd! KRAM <3

  2. Tack Ulrika! I am really going to focus on all the good! KRAM :)

  3. Tänker på dig!! Jag är kvar i Stockholm denna veckan tveka inte att höra av dig om jag kan göra ngt!

  4. Hi darling daughter, I love Pink too. I love her song that goes something about 'raise your glass' she has a new one out. can't remember the name. Teresa, they say that when you have been through the fire, you are stronger. You are endowed with spirituality, strength and goodness! Let that spirit of adventure and love inside you carry you through each day. Only one hour at a time - you can do anything. I am thinking of you every day! love Mom and Dad

  5. Counting the days until you guys get here! It will be fine! Do not worry!
