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.

norway won't let us go!

OK, we did finally get out of Norway ... but it required one trip into the sky, only to turn around when a previous problem that had already delayed our flight by 2 hours cropped again and the pilot had to turn around and return to Oslo. Much later, after a free lunch and much lingering about talking with other passengers, we finally boarded another plane, at the same gate that they had told us NOT to use just half an hour before, and were finally in the skies bound for Prague. We arrived here about 5 hours later than we were supposed to, definitely a bit worn out. But hey, if you ever need a detailed account of the Oslo airport, we can give you one (that includes the tarmac and various aircraft).

On such a note we arrived in Prague. It was too late on Thursday to do any sightseeing, which turned out to be OK. Uncle Bob was right, Prague can easily be seen in two days, which is what we have done. It certainly is a beautiful city! If it weren't for the huddled masses who also decided to join our vacation, our time here would be perfect. Literally, at times it feels like Disneyland on New Year's Eve, less walking and more being walked as the crowds force us along.

This morning we bought tickets to Vienna, and we leave tomorrow morning on the 10:23 train. We're very much looking forward to going, being as how I speak a tiny bit of the language (unlike in Norway and Czech), and we're staying with friends! Well, friends of family anyway, and that's basically the same thing. We're looking forward to a home-cooked meal and a chance to tell someone else about all our adventures. They have been many!

Every time I get a chance to write something here I wish I had much more time. I haven't even begun to share about what a great time we had in Bergen! But I suppose it will have to wait. As will anything about Vienna, I'm sure. We can't hardly believe how quickly the last two weeks have flown. We'll be heading for home in just a few more days! We look forward to relaying so much more about our trip. I'm afraid you'll just have to wait until then.

Hope all is well with each who reads these unedited words of mine. We'll be seeing you soon!
