Sorry for the delay -- I only meant to keep this blog during my field research (Spring semester 2010) but .... I found it to be a useful tool and I think I am going to need a place to vent a little as I was diagnosed with breast cancer about 4 weeks ago. Thankfully, it was caught early -- basically I have invasive DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In Situ)-- the "nicest" breast cancer that you can get apparently. I had surgery this past Thursday at St John's here in St Louis -- right now I am waiting for pathology reports but the initial pathology report showed that the cancer had not spread to my lymph nodes (but we still need to wait for the full pathology report before breathing a sigh of relief!). As it looks now -- I am in for 6-7 weeks of radiation treatment, hopefully finishing just before the fall semester at SWIC starts.
So how in the world will I get this darn dissertation done?!
