Hey. I'm still alive. I'm still in remission!

August 31st, 2021 at 05:49 pm

I know it's probably really mean of me to post about having terminal cancer and then disappear. 

I just wanted to pop in and let you all know I am still alive and still in remission, from stage 4 kidney cancer. Still no sign of cancer, for over a year now. I'm still getting infusions, and life is still insane with kids and pandemic 2020/2021, but I'm alive. And we aren't bankrupt yet from cancer treatment, which in America, is a miracle in and of itself. 

So yes. I am still here. I am still alive, and I miss you all. Things have just been crazy!

My switching to a career as a fiction author has really taken off, too, and it's eating up a lot of my time. Which is good! I've got five books in one series that sell well, and another trilogy, and I signed an audiobook deal with a traditional publisher, and am getting royalties. 

Even after bad news, dreams can come true!

    Really glad to hear you are doing well. So long as you are fine, I myself understand about being a bit absent online, seeing as how I am not exactly innocent of such charges either haha.

    Fantastic news on all fronts! I think of you often. I was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer two years ago this week. I am in remission as well. Live life to the fullest, which it sounds like you are!

    I always figure that you were handed a second chance to live your life, so that's what you are off doing. It's nice to see you pipe up on occasion, though.

    So good to hear from you. You do what you need to do to keep yourself healthy and happy. It's always nice when you check in because we are all pulling for you to stay in remission!

    So happy to hear it's still in remission! And great job on the fiction--I have two self-published books out and a bunch more written, but I'm terrible about marketing them, and I'm having trouble finding time to edit and publish more of my manuscripts! Maybe someday I'll follow in your footsteps.

    I’m so glad to hear from you and praise God the cancer is in remission. I’ll definitely continue to pray for you.
    Happy the book sells are going well, we love you!
