Woman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend... Just when I thought life could not get any better I heard a knock on my door, it was Cancer.
It changed everything but not for the worse. I choose Life and Hope .
BACK OFF CANCER is what I say!

The beginning of this journey...shaving my head

Happy & Grateful!

So the test came and went and on the same day, at 9 pm at night, my dear Dr. Strebel called me with the good news that the scans were clean. His words: "scans looked like someone who never had cancer before". He was so sweet and genuinely as happy as I was to be able to deliver the news. Needless to say that celebration broke out at the Giessmann house hold. I feel so fortunate and grateful! Grateful that I am cancer free, grateful that now I have hair and have to begin to worry about bad hair days, grateful that I must use my tweezers on my eyebrows again, grateful that I have a cold and is just that a cold, like every other "normal person".
Thank you for the good wishes, prayers and vibes! Next scan in about 4 months! I will try to worry about that one only in 3 months and 3 weeks :)
much love to all
big kiss
