Hello to all --

Sorry I have not posted in a while.  Things have been changing here in Liquid French Land.

A couple of weeks ago, I was diagnosed with small cell cervical cancer.  I was totally blindsided, as I had no symptoms at all.  They found it as a result of my annual exam.

So ... I am in the midst of chemotherapy and radiation.  No trip to France for me August 3.  But that's okay.  Right now, I have to focus on beating this.  And I will.

In fact, I think of France as I get my radiation and chemo. 

I envision the radiation and chemicals as allied soldiers at the D-Day Invasion.  They are fighting to rid my body of the Nazis.  My body is like France.  It will get bombed and beaten, but it will heal and rise up strong.  Go get em, Ike and Monty and Charles DeGaulle.   Vive la France!

I still have plenty to post about loving France.  Stayed tuned.
