My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

As is custom, we switch back and forth between our two families every year for the holidays. This year we joined the Westons in a Thanksgiving camping trip! We camped for four days in King City, off the 101 between Paso Robles and Salinas, in case you're wondering. The days were beautiful, the nights were frigid, the food was scrumptious and the relaxing was much enjoyed by all who partook. Following are a few pictures from the weekend. (Click on any of the pictures for a link to the rest from Thanksgiving.)

Bob, Lucas, Christie, Pam, Andrew, Heidi, Caleb ... enjoying our Thanksgiving meal complete with turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, yams, and stuffing. Mmmmm .... And then of course, we had pie for dinner.

This was the campsite. Bob, Pam and Andrew slept in the trailer on the left, Lucas and Christie and the boys slept in the tent trailer on the right ... Heidi and Caleb slept in a tent in the middle. It got down into the mid-20s every night, making for interesting sleeping for me and Caleb. But it worked!

I, of course, spent as much time knitting as the cold air would allow. Its a bit tricky to keep knitting when your hands are pretty much frozen through. But I got a lot done anyway!

On Friday, Andrew, Caleb, Lucas, Christie and I went for a hike in the nearby Pinnacles National Monument. It was a gorgeous day and a fun afternoon out.

And then of course, there were the cutest participants of the weekend, Conrad and Burke. They seemed to thoroughly enjoy their first camping Thanksgiving.
