PROJECT: 05-DJC:174.9

This is Deirdre's Breast Cancer Diary. I try to update this blog at least every evening. This is an easy way for me to keep a journal of the experience, and at the same time, I can keep my friends and family up-to-date on what is going on. I find it is not so bad to have cancer, but it is awfully depressing to talk about it. I hope you laugh as you read along. You can find the beginning in February the archives. Thanks again for reading :o)

Lordy, Lordy! Deirdre is 40!

Happy Birthday to meeeeeeee! I have so much to be thankful for. So much to live for! I had a party on Sunday to celebrate. It was a great time! My brother came and brought his guitars and he and my uncle George played and sang - Eleanor Ripalda, too! (She is family to me as well!) Mark did a fantastic job at being chef and also was the host with the most. It was a great night. Did I tell you what Mark gave me for my birthday? A BRAND NEW CAR! It's a 2005 Ford Escape XLT Sport! Woohoo! ...for getting back and forth to cancer radiation treatment, of course ;-)
Tomorrow I have an appointment at the radiation oncology department. It is another preparatory appointment with Dr. Carmello. The radiation will begin (for real) on Thursday, August 4th.
