Dreams Shreams

Good morning! I've been distracting myself before the MRI with friends and walking. Yesterday I walked to Dan's work for lunch, finding a cool new path...

Of course, even with my best efforts at distraction, I had a nightmare last night that I had a 2 cm tumor. I'm not a dream whisperer, but maybe it's one of those reverse reality things where the opposite is true? That's what I'm going to decide to believe. 

I have been having such an amazing summer, and as corny as it sounds, I'm happy each day, waking up excited about my life, my friends and family, my little garden, our sweet Emma and baby Bingie. 

I haven't been researching as much, instead taking time to live my life, and enjoy myself. If the scan is bad, I'm sure I'll nose back into the research, but I have to say that these past few weeks have been such a treat!! 

I just feel so fortunate, so blessed, and incredibly grateful for my life. I don't know how I got so lucky! 


  1. Glad to hear you are taking it easy and hanging out with friends and Danny! Sometimes you just need to step away from the books and the research and have a breather and just enjoy the simple.

    Good luck with the MRI I had mine yesterday - no matter how many you have you never get used to them! Let me know how you get on.

    Big hugs


  2. Hi Jess, thanks for sharing your journey and blog. It is really refreshing to meet someone else. My fiancé, 32, was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma in 2011 and has since been on the chemo, radiation schedule. It is so nice to hear you are having fun and living life! I know exactly what you mean, about being grateful. I feel exactly the same. In some strange way I catch 'happiness' much more these days.
