Happy as Castanets

Direct translation from the Spanish.  That´s how I feel, since a week ago, when the results of a scan showed me to be almost free of cancer: breast cancer, which left me a one-tit wonder eleven or twelve years ago, came back in my lungs and bones – and now it´s nearly gone!  Whether it´s because I´ve been so successful at enjoying every day, or because of the food full of life energy I´ve been eating, or the pill (Loxifan) that I´ve been taking daily (my kind doctor attributes miraculous powers to this) – I imagine it´s a combination of all three – spirit, food, and scientific research.
I´m going to carry on living each day as if it were my last, whilst taking great care crossing the road to make sure it isn´t!
I hope this encourages people who may be in the same boat: I got an enormous amount of help at the start of the process from reading Anita Moorjani´s “Dying to be Me”, which took away the fear of dying.
