October is almost Here

The reason i say October at least in the USA, its for breast cancer awareness.  i didn’t realize i havent been on here ,with my own blog ,for almost a month, its been a tough month, but September often is , but that another story for another day.

someone very close to me was recently diagnosed with a strange cancer, i know most everyone knows someone, or has had cancer themselves.. including me,Ive been clean for 25 years.

In 2012 about 14.1 million new cases of cancer occurred globally (not including skin cancer other than melanoma).[6] It caused about 8.2 million deaths or 14.6% of human deaths.[6][16] The most common types of cancer in males are lung cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer and stomach cancer. In females, the most common types are breast cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer and cervical cancer.[6] If skin cancer other than melanoma were included in total new cancers each year it would account for around 40% of cases.[17][18] In children, acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and brain tumors are most common except in Africa where non-Hodgkin lymphoma occurs more often.[14] In 2012, about 165,000 children under 15 years of age were diagnosed with cancer. The risk of cancer increases significantly with age and many cancers occur more commonly in developed countries.[6] Rates are increasing as more people live to an old age and as lifestyle changes occur in the developing world.[19] The financial costs of cancer were estimated at $1.16 trillion US dollars per year as of 2010.[20]

My cousin(who happens to be my oldest friend) is still waiting for all of Her results to come back, while she did show me where  the Surgeons cut her open, i didnt think it was appropriate to post that image. but i can tell you her entire mid section(from the breast bone, to the bottom of her stomach) was cut open. Chemo will be in her future, and hopefully that will be that, we all pray!!!

this is a woman, who never smoked, hardly ever drank,  so if Ive done nothing today,maybe i talked someone into calling for a yearly appointment for a check up ,man or woman, things need to be checked..just like a car..so ..get on the phone and make your appointments!!! and i only tell you these things about my cousin . to do what it takes to get you to call and make an appointment.

when ever im upset ..or just plain confused about life in general..i always find it soothing to sit by a body of water. so this particular day, after seeing my cousin, My wonderful Husband took me to see my Grand Daughter  and sit by a lake.

Out and About…Here and There

so i had to go home again (where i grew up) to take care of Mom. She still needs help with Laundry and grocery shopping, still cant drive yet, or bend. even though im not all that far away, its amazing how 1 night away can  gum up the works. Of course sleeping on a sofa doesnt help. but..i do what a can.so my reward was meeting my Brother in Law  to shoot for a little bit. We met up on the west side of Buffalo, in a neighborhood called Elmwood Village.  and of course had to go to a unique coffee house called SPoT. we walked and walked, and then i headed for my Home, to care for my own family, the felines were angry. what else is new?!!and later in the week , after i caught up on my sleep ,in the comfort of my own bed  captured a few subjects:) so here we go……….
