Packing it In

Hey Mets Sisters,

Do you ever wake up feeling crappy and wish you had taken advantage of the previous day? I have. More and more I find that any day where I feel good, the weather is cooperating, my family is home, or I have plans that don’t include cancer appointments is a good day. Not that the others are bad, but…

Right now we are ‘packing it in’. My suitcase keeps getting repacked rather than being put away. I’m so grateful to be able to do so. We have also tackled some projects at home. (I have decided that painting every 10 years is the way to go.)  

I know how quickly things can change. I, like you, have had to put plans on hold because of cancer. Rather than let it consume me I try go with it. Next week my husband starts football practice and I will be having surgery on my mouth thanks to ONJ (osteonecrosis of the jaw) Until then though, I’m going to make the most of every single day. 

Keep killing cancer,



  • Cancer

    Hi Heather, I have been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and just saw your article in the BCW magazine. It’s nice to know you have done so well after your experience. I have a mastectomy Jan.9, 2017. There is so much I don’t know, it will be a challenge to learn enough to keep up with all that will happen. Any information or advise will be gratefully appreciated. How did you tolerate the chemo? Thank you for listening. Faye Olson
