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.

Best to you as you undergo your treatment! I wish you complete healing from this.

It is a good reminder about just how important those annual exams are! I'm so glad that you got yours.

Paris is still here, waiting for you to recover so that you can visit.

Get well soon, Vivianne.

i was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years back just before a trip to paris had been planned. i'm fine and you will be too.

not a day went by that i didn't say my prayers thanking all of those who went before me. treatment is still tough -- but those earlier patients have made it so much easier and safer for us.

take care and plan your next trip!

Like Karin said.. "Paris will always be here for you."

Concentrate on getting well and then visit France and blog all about it!

All the best


P.S. (Doing that special prayer thing for you tonight - normally only Tottenhan Hotspurs Football Club get that - but then, they bloody need it!)

Wow, I hope you are OK! I am a colon cancer survivor myself but I was lucky that we caught the tumors early and I didn't need chemo/radiation. Athough I have to keep going back to remove them. I know this must be a tough time for you and disappointing to cancel your trip! Hang in there.
