Colors of October
October has always been the perfect month. I still think of it as an orange month, with golds and reds thrown in. But in recent years I've learned to appreciate the other color associated with the October. And this year, I really began to understand the impact of that PINK and Breast Cancer Awareness.
I've become fond of the bubble gum color that has helped spotlight the very thing that people used to whisper about. The focus has made it easier for people like me to share. And the focus has helped me get better care, with so many new developments in recent years.

A Good Month to End Chemo
Last Day of Pink Month
I ended the pink month, wearing orange and holding onto my very own brown & gold guardian angel. Steve carved this special gift from cedar and coated it with shellac and linseed oil. The delivery on October 31, seemed to bring perfect closure to a special month. Of course, I may be in danger of wearing away the metallic gold flakes... I've spent 2 days studying this little treasure with my hands.
Kicks and Prayers!
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
