Re: [MOL] testing cancer during staging/ Lil/Liz



Ah my Liz, what do you think the punch line is?

Are you exercising that shoulder of your's.  You have to exercise every day
forever and ever!  Because of my fall and hitting my left side so hard,
throwin the shoulder backwards I can't exercise if I tried and it concerns
me.

But you know Liz, it is good to keep vigil; but at the same time we need to
get rid of the thoughts of what if's.  They can take over our lives.  We
need to enjoy ourselves, do the things we have always wanted to do and just
know in our hearts that the cancer will not return.  Gosh, I went 20 year's
befor I got hit with cancer again, now if I go another 20 year's, well it
would be time for me to say adiaos anyway.  Take care friend, lillian
