Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to let everyone know I had a clean scan in December! That makes remission about at 10 months now on no drugs at all! Miracle cure? I hope. Praying for continued remission. I also wanted to post this movie quote from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers because I felt like this is how I felt when I was going through treatment and hard times...

FRODO: I can't do this.

SAM: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. and sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened.

But in the end, its only a passing thing, the shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer.

Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But, I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of coming back only they didn't. They kept going. They were holding on to something.

FRODO: What were they holding on to, Sam?

SAM: That there's some good in this world Mr. Frodo. And its worth fighting for.

Happy New Year to everyone! Heath and happiness to all!
