The Cake Gets Bigger

Today is my 49th birthday. Frankly, I wasn't sure I was going to make it, seriously.

The first birthday post I publishedin this blog was in 2006:

Although a number of names would need to be added to the acknowledgment portion, I likely could have re-posted the entry word for word this year and the message would have been then same.

It's a weekend of friends, family, relaxation and celebrating 49. It also marks the beginning of all the sorted milestones, initial diagnosis, first scans, official diagnosis and the beginning of living with this dreaded disease. I'll do my best to mark each of these with a post.

For now, HBD2ME!!

Well now you have to go and modify your header on this blog page. (now 49). I turn 50 soon and Ruthie is reminding me daily almost. It's hard to believe that it's been 5 years since I got my diagnosis with an advanced form of this stupid disease.

David you have taught me so much about courage that I will always be thankful for. May God bless you my friend. Happy Birthday!
