THANK YOU

I would like to take a second to simply say thank you. Thank you to all the friends, family and supporters who have come together for this cause. MY LIFE.... Its actually weird for me to say this and have almost avoided the reality of the cause. Still I will say that in all of the seriousness, lets find time to laugh and joke because as you know, I love to do a lot of that and will continue to do so. So with much love, hugs and kisses I say thank you.

First Day OUT!

AHHHH what a feeling. Driving down the pch today- along the beach for all the non-west coasters reading- I felt like me again. Seeing the waves crashing and the sun hitting my face its all I ever needed. The simple things are much appreciated now. I had my first bout of nausea today but it only lasted about 15 min. Then the instant I felt strong my mom, my lady and I hit the road to Malibu. There we had a beautiful lunch including salad- green veggies- and salmon with brown rice. Yall thought I was a healthy eater before. Im about to turn it up a notch. CANCER OUT!!!!

Getting out of the hospital

After eight days of being at the best hospital in the world I am ready to make my way back to "real life". Its funny because for the last eight days I probably didn't think that i was living in the real world. Everything seemed to be coming at me at 1000 mph.. I thought i was going into the er for an ulcer or constipation 13 hrs later they are telling me that I they have bad news. So the testing began and i promise it never stopped. mid-night blood test, 6 am vital checks, around the clock docs.. And i was not complaining.
