I began my Cancer treatment in January 2010. And again....... I reduced my workload. I was now down to giving only three or four massages per week. These were still one of the greatest joys that I had. It helped me to concentrate on other people instead of concentrating on myself. I was only given a 15% chance of survival. I made it my mission to enjoy every moment that I could. I wanted to make people laugh and I wanted to make other people feel better. I kept a positive attitude and with the Grace of God, I am still here, four and a half years later. I also started working on my garden during this time. There is something very therapeutic about creating a beautiful garden and yard. Now, mind you, this wasn't easy. I dug out grass with a hand spade and laid a beautiful cobblestone patio and garden path. I planted roses, not just one or two, but more like 40 to 50 rose bushes. I love the way it all turned out. It is really like my own little oasis. But during all of the work on my yard I managed to tear my rotator cuff and my deltoid muscle. Sound impressive, huh? More like painful!!! I get the most relief when I get a massage. Does that happen as often as it should? Nope! I have been grounded from giving massages for many weeks now. So that means, I do not get to enjoy helping my clients get rid of their pain and I do not get paid to NOT give massages. Therefore, I can't pay to have someone give me a massage, either! GOSH, I SURE DO MISS MASSAGES!!!
