My Reward for Kicking Cancer's ASS!!!

I guess I should start by telling everyone I'm doing great. But, for those of you who don't know, here's the story...

Like anyone else, I got pretty drunk on my 30th birthday. I lost my glasses. A couple weeks later I gave up on finding them so I went to the eye doc to get new ones. During my eye exam, he found a tiny spot in my iris that he was concerned about, so he referred me to another doctor, who then referred me to another doctor at Emory. Well, Dec. 5, 2006 is a day I'll never forget. I was told I had a tumor in my eye. I decided the best way to handle this was to keep it pretty quiet. I didn't want to think about it, didn't want to worry about it. Which I was pretty impressed with myself and my ignoring abilities. I only had trouble sleeping the day I found out and the day before I started radiation.

So, Jan 11, 2007 I began my week of radiation. Which was pretty awful, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!!!

Jan 18, 2007 I had the radiation (we'll call it "device") removed. And I've been slowly but surely regaining my vision. It's still a little blurry, but I'm doing good - all things considered.

Anyways, the point of this blog is to talk about my reward, which I'm VERY excited about!!!! It put a little bit of a dent in my tiny little savings account, but I'm pretty sure I earned it!

4-6 weeks to ship this bad boy (well, girl, named Mitsa by the way) I don't know how I'm gonna manage to get through that waiting period! But when everything's setup, we'll definitely be having some kind of viewing party at my place!!!!
