One year mark

It's been a while...here's a quick update and photo.

Hello again friends and family,
It has been exactly one year since we got the horrible news of my recurrence. We've adjusted to our new normal and all is well.

Thank you so much for all the support on my Mt. Adams climb. It was truly an amazing experience and an accomplishment cancer can never take away. I've learned over the past year that even though life isn't always fair, it is good. Jake and I are really happy and we continue to be so grateful for all of you.

My health continues to be stable. I'm having some aches and pains here and there, but who doesn't? I see Dr. Rinn on Thursday for my monthly Zometa treatment and I'm sure it is about time for another scan. I'll keep everyone posted if there is any news to report. Thanks again for your prayers and support! - Nancy
